Jesse Daso


About Me

Do you find yourself repeating habits or activities you’ve wanted to change? Have you discovered that time doesn’t actually heal all wounds? Would you like to feel more present, authentic and connected to yourself and others?

I help create a safe space to explore these questions. I will come along side you, learn about you and the strengths you already have, and help you build a plan for recovery. I can employ many different methods to help, but ultimately the only treatment I am interested in is the one that works for you.

I practice ‘unconditional positive regard’. I think you are heroic for seeking help. I believe you hold the keys to your own recovery, and I will help you fit them to the locks that are holding you back. I will be a helper, a supporter, and a confidante.

Spirituality can be a great help to some in times of need, but it can also be a hindrance and embody judgement, guilt, and shame. I am well versed in both sides of this coin, and can engage with a variety of spiritual practices. I can also exclude this aspect in therapy if desired, or help you find healing from spiritual abuse.

After over a decade in the military as an enlisted Marine and Air Force officer, I earned a Master’s degree in Professional Counseling from Concordia University with concentrations in Trauma and Substance Abuse. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Substance Abuse Counselor. My five kids and two cats keep me on my toes and help me juggle priorities and appreciate relationship dynamics!

Jesse Daso is fantastic! I have been looking for a therapist like him for years. He is great at understanding and communicating. He has respect for everyone. He is the best therapist I have had in several decades.

I will be ever thankful for Jesse’s validating, encouraging and compassionate guidance. Seeking help to resolve a few complex issues I stumbled upon, and in four short months of working with Jesse Daso, my quality of life has greatly improved. I feel far happier and more secure with myself and in my marriage. Jesse asked direct questions to understand and get to the heart of my difficulties and was quick to offer a method of healing; he took my problems seriously and his responses were thoughtful and clear. Jesse provided a safe environment for me to be completely open and honest, to expose my deep hurts, and he has taught me the beauty, necessity and power of self-compassion to heal and be free from my old wounds and trauma. Now I am equipped with the skills and resources I need to confidently carry forward on my healing journey. Thank you, Jesse!

Jesse has a wonderful way of providing support while also challenging limiting beliefs. He has fantastic ideas when it comes to practical steps to move through challenges. He has done a great job of weaving biblical truths into our conversations while not dismissing feelings with a “Jesus bandaid”. I’m very grateful that I was matched with Jesse.
