DR. DAN HOEFLING

Dan began his journey as a mental health professional working at the largest non-for-profit community mental health clinic in Washington, DC. He was inspired by the resilience and strength of the clients that sought services, who often struggled with a variety of issues related to serious mental illness, poverty, homelessness, trauma, and addiction while also often marginalized by society.

 

It was there where he received training to facilitate Men's Trauma groups to not only facilitate groups for men who have been exposed to violence, but also create a space for men to discuss their concerns and issues in a society that teaches men to minimize their emotions.

 

Since, Dan has been focused on using his experience from completing 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training to bring mindfulness and create space for people in exploring their feelings, thoughts, and actions. We often are doing the best we can at the time. When we have that safe space to process these interrelated experiences, we can begin to find connections and themes. As our awareness increases, we can find ways to develop plans and other methods to the moment for whatever life sends our way.
