Daniel Spence


Daniel uses an integrated approach to therapy to work with individuals and couples to see how their past experiences inform the way they think; and how those patterns of thinking can be changed and accepted to improve their lives and their relationships. Daniel specializes in working with trauma, depression, and anxiety. He also specializes in working with clients who engage in sex work, and has published the clinical guidelines on this topic. He has worked in East Africa with refugees, survivors of torture, and victims of sexually based violence. In addition to his work in Global Mental Health, he is particularly interested in areas of identity, gender and sexuality, self-acceptance and body image. Daniel strongly believes that the most important aspect of therapy is the counseling relationship, as well as in positive psychology and strength-based approaches to therapy.
