Dr. Daniel J. Van Ingen


About Me

I am a clinical psychologist in Sarasota, FL. I am a researcher, a national speaker, an author, and a father. My published books include Anxiety Disorders Made Simple: Treatment Approaches to Overcome Fear & Build Resiliency and You Are Your Child's Best Psychologist: 7 Keys to Excellence in Parenting. I have traveled to over 120 cities across the nation training clinicians on treatment methods, including teaching my 8-hour seminar titled Rewire the Anxious Brain: Neuroscience-Informed Treatment of Anxiety, Panic and Worry. My treatment methods are based on brain research, happiness research as well as courage-based solutions with personal problems and relationships. My vision and purpose in life is helping clients face their pain, overcome their pain, and bring healing to their lives. I also believe that facing and overcoming pain involves trusting in God for his healing hand.

I would highly recommend Dr. Dan to anyone who is seeking an experienced compassionate and balanced counselor. I have met with many counselors over my professional career. In my experience with life coaches, business coaches, Christian counselors and Pastors, Dr. Dan has been able to quickly analyze my life and drill down to the core issue and offer supportive solutions.
