About Dan Keusal
Welcome. I'm Dan Keusal. For more than 29 years, I've been serving as a Jungian psychotherapist in Seattle, WA.
My work stems from a deep commitment to supporting the unique journey of those I serve. I provide a broad, holistic, multi-faceted approach that honors and integrates mind, body, and spirit.
I hold a masters degree in Marriage & Family Therapy from Seattle Pacific University; as part of that degree I earned a Certificate from the Marriage & Therapy Training Center from what was then Presbyterian Counseling Service (now Samaritan Center of Puget Sound). I am a Washington State Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (License #LF 00001195). I have also studied Analytical (Jungian) Psychology at the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago.
In addition to more than 29 years in private practice, I have worked in several counseling agencies, and at a hospital that specialized in treating people with psychiatric and chemical dependency (drug & alcohol) issues.
I earned my undergraduate degree from the University of Notre Dame (in Theology). I have done graduate theological studies at St. Michael's College in Vermont. I also completed basic training in shamanism with Michael Harner's Foundation for Shamanic Studies.
After two years of studies with Seattle-area astrologers Sheila Belanger and Laura Nalbandian, I completed a five year apprenticeship with Steven Forrest, an internationally respected astrologer, author, and teacher (Forrest quotes me in his excellent recent blog post on "Astrology & Psychotherapy"--click here).
I've also completed training in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR).
In order to continue growing professionally, I regularly attend workshops, seminars, and classes on a wide variety of topics, I consult with peers and other professionals, I read, and I attend to my own self-care and personal growth.
For more than 27 years, I have led workshops and lectured on Jungian psychology, personal development, spirituality, astrology, and other topics. By integrating practical examples with stories, humor, and the arts, I work to integrate head and heart, to make the process of healing and growth accessible while honoring the complexity and depth that gives life its richness and meaning. I have presented to a wide variety of organizations, including Microsoft, Seattle University, The C.G. Jung Society of Vancouver BC (Canada), The Northwest Astrological Conference, and dozens of other churches, businesses, and community groups. For a detailed list, click here.
I bring to my work a passionate love for the arts, and an appreciation for their power to animate, deepen, and enrich our lives. I have am a musician and a photographer, and a devoted student of film and poetry.
In my free time, I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, walking in my favorite local parks, playing the guitar, and staying alert for the next movie, book, song, or poem that will enrich my soul. Since moving to the northwest, I've also become a lover...of coffee :-
