Daniel Parke, LCSW

I received a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Brigham Young University in 2003 and have been practicing counseling full-time since then.  Prior to providing outpatient counseling, I worked at ANASAZI Foundation (a wilderness based, residential treatment program) for over 10 years either as a counselor or Coordinator of Clinical Services. 

 

I am impressed by the resilience and strength demonstrated by those I work with and trust in their ability to meet the challenges they face.  Motivation and courage to make desired changes is fostered in the context of a nurturing relationship. I provide a counseling environment of this nature through:

  • Asking questions that help to elicit self-awareness and insight

  • Listening compassionately

  • Maintaining a kind, gentle and calm approach 

  • Focusing on strengths, successes and progress

  • Inviting others to trust their own intuition

  • Encouraging compassion for self and others

  • Respecting the self-determination of each individual 

  • Unconditional  Acceptance

 

I specialize in the following areas:

-Couples relationships

-Parenting teenagers

-Individuals impacted by trauma 

-Those navigating anxiety

-Supporting those experiencing the effects of a faith transition.

 

In my free time I enjoy reading, meditation, exercise and spending time with my wife and four children.
