Daniel Brooks, LCSW, is an experienced, licensed, clinical psychotherapist with offices in Brooklyn’s Park Slope 11217, Midtown Manhattan and New Hope, Pa. 18938 A graduate of the Pennsylvania State University, Fordham University and the National Institute for the Psychotherapies, New York City, Brooks has additional certification and experience in work with couples, adolescents and families. He specializes in LGBT issues.

While initially trained in classical analysis, Brooks’ approach has become a compilation of progressive and contemporary theories and techniques, such as Ego, Self and Developmental psychologies. His style is supportively and nuturingly interactive.

A decade ago, Brooks initiated and began New Hope Celebrates, the only LGBT marketing organization in Bucks County, Pa., and restored a 165 year-old farmhouse and former stage coach stop, which now operates as The Wishing Well Guesthouse.

He is also an avid recreationalist and overall gym advocate. He feels that going to the gym regularly gives him the energy to diversify his life and the good health to enjoy it.

In addition to his private practice, Brooks is a staff psychotherapist at Metropolitan Mental Health Clinic (W. 86 and W. 94/Central Park West) on Manhattan's Upper West Side. He is also on the panel of psychotherapists selected for the venerable Identity House (LGBT) in Manhattan.

Brooks’ favorite Yeats poem describes the therapeutic process for which he aspires:

“Labor is blossoming or dancing where
The body is not bruised to pleasure soul,
Nor beauty born out of its own despair,
Nor bleary-eyed wisdom out of midnight oil.
O chestnut tree, great rooted blossomer,
Are you the leaf, the blossom or the bole?
O body swayed to music, O brightening glance,
How can we know the dancer from the dance?”
