About

As a Clinical Therapist, Danilo Velez brings a wealth of professional experience and a deep commitment to promoting mental well-being and personal growth. With ten years of practice in Social Work, he has worked with individuals from diverse backgrounds, fostering a compassionate and non-judgmental therapeutic environment. He believes in the inherent resilience of each and tailors treatment approaches to meet every client's unique needs and goals. Danilo's therapeutic approach is rooted in evidence-based modalities such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, and a strength-based model. He recognizes the significance of the therapeutic relationship in the healing process and strives to build a trusting alliance with clients, creating a safe space for exploration and growth.


Furthermore, Danilo seeks to explore inner strengths that individuals already have in their possession to fulfill their goals. Moreover, Danilo strongly believes in self-awareness and self-compassion, encouraging clients to embrace their authentic selves and navigate life's challenges with resilience. He is dedicated to empowering individuals to unlock their potential and achieve meaningful and lasting change. Beyond the therapeutic realm, Danilo finds joy in exploring the great outdoors and spending time with his family of four. He is passionate about always learning something new and dedicates himself to reading. He enjoys delving into books from various genres, mostly educational, memoirs, biographies, and history. Danilo enjoys coding, with moderate knowledge of software coding programs such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. He is currently in pursuit of learning Python. In addition to that, Danilo enjoys watching the sport of Basketball. Last but not least, Danilo is a car enthusiast fascinated with exotic vehicles of such brands as Lamborghini, Koenigsegg, Pagani, and many more. Danilo's ultimate goal is to support clients in their journey toward emotional well-being and personal growth, walking alongside them as they uncover their inner strengths and develop the tools to thrive in life.

Why Healthcare

Coming from a background where I was exposed to different disorganized communities and individuals in a dire need of help due to the lack of basic resources during my time as a member of The Salvation Army, I knew early on that my career would be dedicated to those who need it most.
