Dan Workman, LMSW

Licensed Master Social Worker

Therapy is an opportunity to create a safe container in which we can become open and curious--instead of fearful or defended—about thoughts, feelings, and behavior that are problematic and unproductive.

I believe in making a good start in a client’s personal journey by being approachable, empathetic and establishing clear, useful boundaries.

 

I work in a psychodynamic frame, incorporating mentalization, narrative, and CBT techniques, with adolescents and adults.

 

I am a Trauma Fellow trained at the University of Houston and have over 20 years’ experience working in the recovery community. I am passionate about both individual and group therapy.

 

In addition to being a psychotherapist, I have enjoyed a 29-year career as a recording engineer and producer, working on platinum records and Grammy-winning performances. Helping musical creatives manifest their best performance under challenging circumstances is very similar to working as a therapist to help each client manifest their best self.

 

Specialties:

 

  • Clients who self-identify as ‘being creative' or as 'a creative.' Such clients have an additional layer of complexity to their personality and their ability to organize their world

  • Clients who are experiencing life challenges due to past and current trauma

  • General anxiety and depression, including bipolar disorder

  • Alcohol, drug, or process addictions (sex, love, and co-dependency)

  • Issues around aging and later life experiences.
