About Me

Hello and Welcome!

If you are struggling with trust, intimacy, or connection in your relationship you have come to right place. With more than 10 years of experience working with couples to improve their relationships I have seen it all and can help you to learn the skills needed to say what needs to be said so that the other person can hear it and the two of you can move forward together. Stop speaking (or yelling) past each other by working in counseling to find your voice, address problematic patterns, and learn new ways to support each other. If you have been going to sleep angry or frustrated, don’t know how to be intimate with each other anymore, or feel unheard please know that we can work together to improve and change your relationship. For more information on working with me please visit: https://growthandgratitudetherapy.com/

Couples counseling is different than individual therapy and requires a different skill set from the professional. It is important that you work with an experienced provider who has specific training working with couples so that you receive the best value and your relationship can get better faster!

Relationships define the most important and intimate moments of our lives. Families, friendships, and partnership are all built on intimacy, trust, and communication. These are more than just words. These ideas define a way to approach connections with other people that are critical for building long lasting relationships. I greatly enjoy working with couples because I truly believe in and value the human need for partnership and love. Every relationship goes through ups and downs and can benefit from a professional there to help when needed. At any stage in a relationship there is always room for growth and deeper connection. The beginning of a relationship can be fraught with issues as people begin to come together, but even couples that have been together for years go through challenges that need to be addressed so that the relationship can survive and thrive into the future.

I live in the EDT timezone and hold sessions in the afternoon and evening.

I look forward to working to help your relationship. Schedule a session with me today!

Written by Z.E. on Nov 23, 2019 after counseling with Dan for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

Both my partner and I really grew together during our work with Dr. Dan and would highly recommend him to work with couples going through difficult transitions. After hearing both of our perspectives, Dr. Dan was very intuitive and would propose ideas neither of us had previously considered regarding the direction of our relationship. Therapy at times can provide some discomfort in order to address the underlying issues, but Dr. Dan always treated these difficult conversations with respect for both of us and support to "go there" when we felt ready. The only reason we ended our sessions with Dr. Dan was due to a job lay-off that forced us to reevaluate some financial decisions, otherwise we would be continuing our work with him over Regain. We are very grateful to have been connected to him and the help he gave us as a couple and as individuals.

Dr. Sneider-Cotter has helped our relationship in great ways by providing us with the tools for us to achieve our relationship goals. My significant other does not live with me but we were able to set up 3 way calls which was very beneficial and easy. With the tools our therapist provided and the wanted effort from both ends my significant other and I were able to work In a positive direction for our relationship!
