Daniel DeBrule, Ph.D.


My approach to psychotherapy is both client-centered and evidence-based. Using a collaborative processes, we may review and learn a number of tools and techniques  that can help with a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, PTSD, or crisis. I also engage many clients through depth work that may speak to the human experience in profound ways, including existential themes, values, meaning-making, and spirituality. My background in the Humanistic & Existential traditions often emerges early in our work, as we delve deep into your current concerns and your background. To begin our work, the initial sessions build an excellent foundation of collaboration and understanding of your unique strengths and needs.


Several unique aspects of my own training and background inform my approach as well. I began my journey in the field of Psychology in the late 1990s working with my mentors Calhoun & Tedeschi who have authored many works on the concept of posttraumatic growth. Thus, I not only specialize in assisting trauma survivors in processing their experience but also noting and enhancing opportunities for growth along the journey. As a writer, musician, and athlete for much of my life, I also regularly implement these skills as coping tools with interested clients. For example, in some cases of anxiety attacks, the practice of Written Exposure Therapy can be incredibly helpful. Humor, experiential exercises, and readings/resources to complement your progress are also common. Recently, I have focused much of my practice on Men’s mental health and assist a wide variety of male clients navigating issues including life change, relationship difficulty, work performance, identity, redefining masculinity, creativity, and improving health.
