Daniel Choppa is a graduate level intern pursuing his Master of Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Northwestern University in Chicago, IL. Daniel is originally from Falls Church, VA, and calls the Washington, D.C. metro area home. As an openly gay, HIV positive, cisgender male, he is passionate about working with members of the LGBTQIA+ community, and those that have experienced trauma.
Daniel provides psychotherapy regarding LGBTQIA+ issues, trauma, anger management, grief, adjustment issues, life transitions, mood disorders, HIV, relationship issues, self-esteem difficulties, and group therapy.
Raised by a physical therapist and brother to an acupuncturist and massage therapist, Daniel is an advocate for a wholistic view of healthcare. Incorporating all the different aspects of a life into their treatment is of vital importance to the success of therapy. Daniel knows that therapy can transform a life, as it has completely transformed his for the better, and was a major reason in his education to becoming a mental health practitioner.
By completing his internship requirements with Capital Psychotherapy, Daniel hopes to gain enriching experience working with clients of diverse backgrounds and psychological conditions and continue to grow into the best practitioner he can be. Daniel offers individual therapy sessions for adult clients ages 18+.
