MEET THE TEAM
A Note from the Founder
I started Clarity Counseling in 2019 with one thing in mind: to help people with depression and anxiety feel meaningful relief from pain and suffering as efficiently as possible.
After 10+ years working in non-profit and for-profit mental health organizations I grew frustrated that it took so long for people to experience relief from suffering related to treatable mental health disorders. This isn't to say that faster is always better, but when it comes to significantly reducing suffering - faster did seem important if the results were genuine and lasting.
After attending a training intensive from Dr. David Burns (Stanford University) and putting the approaches into practice I quickly realized the incredible power of his methods (TEAM-CBT) and their ability to add a critical dimension to my therapeutic practice. I continue to advance in the different levels of certification in his method. Those skills in conjunction with a unique session structure comprise what makes Clarity different.
I would be honored if you would be willing to entrust myself or my team with your mental health and I sincerely believe you will be happy with the results if you're motivated to put the work in outside of session.
Wishing You Well,
Daren Casagrande, LMFT92438
