Training Presenter: Daniel J. Bernhardt, MS, LPC

Daniel leads a team of licensed clinicians, along with other administrative staff, in the efforts of providing excellent intensive outpatient services at two different levels of care at Aurora Behavioral Health Systems in Glendale, AZ. Daniel is also part of a group counseling practice, Thrive Therapy, located throughout the greater Phoenix area, in which he sees clients privately, while working also to supervise those clinicians working toward independent licensure status.

Daniel earned both his Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and his Master’s Degree in Counseling from the University of Wisconsin at Whitewater. Daniel is a Licensed Professional Counselor and an approved Clinical Supervisor with the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners. Daniel is currently a PhD student at North Central University, studying Psychology with an emphasis on Trauma and Disaster Relief. Daniel has over seventeen years of experience in the mental and behavioral health fields, working in a variety of treatment settings. Daniel has worked in direct patient care as well as administration. Daniel has experience treating individuals, couples, families and groups. Daniel specializes in the treatment of anxiety and depression with an emphasis on trauma informed care.

As a licensed professional counselor, Daniel’s goal is to help clients uncover their true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While difficult situations of the past can’t be changed, a patient and therapist can work together to better understand and resolve life challenges. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions can be revealed which are often holding patients back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. As a bio-psycho-social-spiritual counselor, Daniel believes in treating the whole person.

Daniel’s therapeutic approach to counseling includes: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Family Systems Therapy. Daniel will also individualize his approach to meet your own specific and unique needs.
