Daniel discovered meditation and spiritual practices at twelve and has been interested in exploring inner states ever since. He apprenticed under a number of shamanic teachers and has been a practicing intentional journeying for over 17 years. For Daniel, working in the professional field of Cannabis and Psychedelics represents a core identity and life calling.   

After graduating from the University of Arkansas with a degree in Communication, Daniel traveled the wild terrain of political activism, corporate accountability research, and campaign finance reform for many years in Washington, DC. Disillusioned by the city, he moved to Florida and opened a small meditation center to explore grassroots community organizing before moving to Boulder, Colorado, and returning to school at Naropa University. Daniel earned a master’s degree in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology from Naropa and received advanced training in MDMA-assisted psychotherapy through a year internship with the MAPS Boulder MDMA for PTSD Study. 

Daniel incorporates his experiences and trainings in multiple modalities to meet his clients where they are in their healing and transformational journey.  Daniel is a trauma specialist and can help his clients unwind their trauma experiences and help them transition into the life they were always meant to live.

Daniel bridges transpersonal paradigms with the grounded clinical and facilitation skills necessary to begin addressing the significant ecological and mental health crises facing our society today. Daniel supports his clients as a teacher, coach, ally, and event facilitator, providing individual and group transformational experiences and deeply held intentional conversations for healing and transformation. In his practice, Daniel quickly realized that the most important intervention he could provide to his clients, who were isolated and longed for meaningful contact with others, was a sense of community. His practice of Medicinal Mindfulness is a cultural intervention that provides a safe and transformational community container for healing and awakening with the intentional use of cannabis and breathwork practices. Daniel facilitates group journeys called Conscious Cannabis Events and guides individuals on cannabis journeys and in breathwork practices.
