I take an active approach to psychotherapy, shaping my input to the needs of my clients. I conceptualize mental health issues from a holistic perspective: emotional, social, medical/physical, and spiritual. I play a variety of different roles with people: listener, teacher, problem-solver, coach, encourager, and fellow-struggler with the complexities of life. I specialize in helping people overcome difficulties with depression, anxiety and stress, compulsive disorders, ADD/ADHD, relationship problems, work problems, and related spiritual concerns. I am familiar with psychotropic medications, am a supporter of recovery work, and have training in a variety of different psychotherapeutic modalities.
If you have not gotten a good result from the medications you have tried, I may be able to help you and your PCP find alternative medical treatments. There are a number of potential sources of low energy and depression that can be explored via a simple blood test. Another option is a SPECT scan. SPECT scans allow us to see your brain in action and thus develop better strategies for treatment.
Daniel McQuoid, Psy.D.
Dr. McQuoid is a licensed Psychologist who has been associated with Henslin & Associates since October 1991. He specializes in substance abuse, recovery issues, blended families, men’s issues, depression, anxiety, and victims of childhood abuse. Dr. McQuoid is the co-author of Fathers & Sons: Embracing Our Wounds, a video tape that has dramas of father and son interactions. This video has been a useful tool for discussions and deepening group sharing for adult fellowships, Bible study groups, men’s group, and to generate discussions and sharing within families.
I have over 25 years experience in individual, marital, family, and group counseling, working with those who have faced a variety of issues in life. Counseling will guide you through a healing process to find a profound sense of your purpose. You will find a warm, healing environment that will impact you intellectually, emotionally, relationally and spiritually. Tools will be provided to increase your sense of well being, your ability to cope with adversity, and your understanding of your brain chemistry as it relates to your emotional struggles.
The focus of the healing process is upon removing dysfunctional ways of coping (e.g, addictions, co-dependency, defense mechanisms, etc.), connecting with historical trauma that hamper present relationships and levels of functioning, addressing brain chemistry issues that impede the healing process, and exploring how an individual’s faith can impact their transformation.
I have many years of experience using SPECT scans when treating brain chemistry issues. In addition, I use EMDR, biofeedback, guided imagery, etc. to assist in one’s healing. When addressing issues of addiction and co-dependency, 12-step support groups can vitally impact one’s healing.
