  • Choosing a therapist can be a time-consuming, anxiety-provoking, and confusing process.  Hopefully, the information provided on this website will be of some help in deciding whether my services will be a good fit for you and your counseling goals.  Feel free to call or email me with any questions you might have about my training and approach.

    Please note that I offer a free 20 minute consultation if requested.  Some find this helpful in their selection of a Catholic therapist. I want to provide you some background information of my training, experience, and approach to better assist you in your choice.

    I have received extensive training in marriage counseling and consider this my primary specialty. I have received advanced training in the Gottman Method and in Emotionally Focused Therapy. EFT currently has the highest success rate of research tested methods in couples therapy.

    In addition to marriage counseling, I also work with individuals suffering from depression, anxiety, stress related problems, shame, spiritual, and anger issues.

    I am also a Certified Life Coach through the Adler Institute and find ways to integrate this into my clinical work. I find this compliments therapy nicely and brings to the work an emphasis on helping clients move toward what they want and the best that God has for them.

    My approach is to work with the whole person, which recognizes Christian spirituality as an essential element of what it means to be truly human.  Understanding our need for grace, along with utilizing sound and effective psychological methods, is a powerful means to healing.

    I am located in Saint Paul, MN. Conveniently accessed from I-94 and I-35 in the Twin Cities area and offer evening appointments.

    Grace and Peace, Dan Stokman

  • Bio:
  • As a Catholic therapist, I provide services to the greater Minneapolis and St Paul area (Twin Cities). For clients traveling a greater distance, I have flexibility to schedule longer sessions, which has proven effective for couples seeking healing to their relationship hurt. Marriage counseling is my primary specialty, but I work with clients struggling with a number of other issues, including depression, anxiety, trauma, stress, grief, and shame.

    I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) through the state of Minnesota and a Certified Life Coach through the Adler Institute.

    My passion is to see transformation take place in the lives of individuals and couples as they experience greater fulfillment and purpose in their lives. In my own life, with its own struggles, I am very aware of my need for Gods grace. Without the One who knows me and loves me, my life lacks vitality, clarity, hope, and direction. We all stand in need of Christ and counseling is no substitute for this. That being said, we need a complete understanding and approach to the human person when we find ourselves facing emotional pain. My profession, which is very much a sense of a calling, focuses primarily on the psychological/emotional aspect of the human person, but framed within the context of knowing the whole of man is so much more.

    My graduate studies at Franciscan University of Steubenville provided a great understanding of how to integrate the Catholic faith with the psychological sciences. I graduated in 1995 with a Masters degree in Counseling.
