Message from Therapist

If you are a Catholic man or woman working to overcome issues in your relationships, difficulties in your marriage, struggling with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, trauma, anger, I can help. I effectively combine my faith with my psychological training to provide you with therapy you can trust, deeply rooted in Catholic Theology and Philosophy.

I believe that God is infinitely more interested in who you are, rather that who you "aren't",  My job, is to assist you in becoming aware of who you are, and connect you back with the necessary supports and resources that will make you the best version of yourself.

In my practice, I utilize cutting edge positive psychology, DBT, mindfulness, positive CBT, existential, and narrative therapy. Every session will leave you with a plan to begin improving your life.  Whatever issues you are going through, I can help to restore your hope and connect you back to the person you were meant to be. You have what it takes.

More About Daniel Lawson, LMHC, CASAC

Catholic Therapy Solutions grew out of a five year discernment with my spiritual director and numerous conversations with my wife, friends, family, clients, and children.

This counseling practice provides much needed services to faithful Catholics underserved by mainstream therapy providers. Often times faithful people are anxious in meeting with a professional who does not share their beliefs. I also want Catholic Therapy Solutions to demonstrate the beauty and genius that Catholicism has to offer those that are seeking therapy services.

I serve clients with diverse backgrounds and experiences. Catholic Therapy Solutions is respectful of all of our clients' beliefs – I am a devout and balanced Catholic that can bring a spiritual and faith-filled perspective into your counseling experience.

My hope in providing services to Catholics, is that they become therapeutic persons, who can assist in healing the culture of shame in our world.
