Mr Daniels has been fantastic. He listens to me and offers his opinions and offers his own life stories to relate and to show me different ways to think about things. I would recommend Mr Daniels to ANYONE. He has gone above and beyond to find me articles and papers that directly reflect my situation. I am dealing with multiple life traumas and grief. I will continue with him for as long as I am with teencounseling.com. If you are wanting a very understanding and caring therapist who actually makes the effort and genuinely cares this is your guy.

Mark very professional listening to my concerns and expressively advices what’s best for me and my teenage kid. He has his funny side and expertise to touch my kid’s heart as going through teenager age and not opened up to me. I’m a single mom with many life challenges that have to tackle at work and home.

Mark has been a great help to me. Growing up in socal as a mixed race man comes with a lot of very specific life experience and it’s been amazing to have someone I can actually relate to while I’m working through serious anxiety/panic attacks and PTSD.
