About Your Counselor
Daniel Osterloo, MS, LCPC
My name is Danny Osterloo and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor. I earned my Master's Degree from Eastern Illinois University. I have clinical experience providing counseling in schools, the community, and a private practice setting. I have a wide range of experience, which includes working through symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma, ADHD, anger, identity issues, career stress, cultural issues, grief, parenting issues, children's issues, and many other every day stressors that may be encountered.
My goal is to help people achieve as much out of life as possible. I think many times in life your full potential for happiness gets overshadowed by daily life. When I work with people I try to help them shed the layers of stress that are creating unnecessary weight. I believe that people have the strength within them to better any circumstance. I view my role as a supporting role in that I help people find and pull out the strength they need to get through any situation. When you are provided with a safe, supportive, judgement-free environment, you are able to focus more clearly on your goals and make sustainable progress.
I pull from many different counseling techniques depending on the situation, but I find myself using Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) most often. When working with adolescents, because their communication can often look different than that of an adult, I use a combination of talk therapy and play therapy. I also believe art can lead to great emotional expression so I use techniques of art therapy with both adults and children at times.
