Counselor CSW, CSAC, ICS, SAP
Hello, first let’s start off with the first thought you had… “How do I say that name?” When broken down phonetically it sounds like: Da- Nee-Lo, but don’t worry, I have heard many different variations and respond to them all. I am also ok with being called Dan or Dani. I grew up in the inner cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis, MN and so that means of course I love the Vikings!!!! SKOL!!! I have been blessed and am blessed with two young boys. When I am not at work I enjoy bow hunting, fishing and coaching my son’s sports teams.
I entered the Social Work and Alcohol and Other Drug Addiction field after watching the devastating effects of alcohol and drugs had on not only my personal family and I, but also my people. I believe that each person on this planet was created to help make this experience called life better for themselves and for others around them and this is how I can contribute. There is a famous quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson and it is about success that I use for my motto which says: “…To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”
