Daniel Mrotek

Mobile Crisis Services Supervisor

All of us enter our own unique journey in life, and while on this journey, we experience a multitude of emotions. Sometimes these feelings are overwhelmingly difficult to express, process, and navigate. And oftentimes we don’t want to feel these emotions at all, which may manifest itself through self-defeating thoughts and behaviors. Daniel is here to provide a comforting and nonjudgmental space for people to work through, not around, parts of the journey that are distressing and painful. Daniel utilizes a combination of well researched therapeutic techniques and, at times, less traditional approaches when helping others.
