Dr. Daniel G. Morjal
I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist practicing since 2006. I have provided therapy services in multiple settings to a wide variety of clientele including adolescents, adults, couples, and families. In addition to therapeutic services, I also teach about numerous mental health/illness topics to Law Enforcement Officers.
Often times the ‘right’ decision is not an easy one and this includes the decision to start therapy. It is frequently thought of as a daunting task but it doesn’t have to be. Once you have found a psychologist that suits your needs, you will likely find feeling better is closer than you thought. My approach to psychotherapy focuses on thoughtfulness, humor, and balance, all without judgment.
Sometimes it may seem like our emotions, thoughts, or behaviors have more control over us than we do over them. We can work to reinstate you as the one in control and enjoy the stability and serenity that comes with it. Together, lets set out to make the you that you want to be a reality.
Law Enforcement & Public Safety
The stressors of a career in Public Safety are many and often take their toll at home, at work, and on one’s overall view of the world. Many times it seems that those who do not share your occupation simply do not understand. There are some who do and, working together, we can bring the balance back.
Couples & Families
Lets be honest, maintaining a relationship is hard work. Maintaining an intimate relationship is even more difficult. Keeping things happy and healthy with your partner is an active process. I can help you be part of that process. Whether it be moving from hearing to listening, arguing to discussing, or the multitude of layers in between, a more satisfying relationship can be a reality.
Aging & Caregivers
Getting older doesn’t have to suck. It’s too bad not everyone shares that opinion. However, when confronted with personal, professional, or health losses, it can seemingly squeeze every last bit of positive emotion out of you. Whether you are experiencing these losses yourself or are caring for a loved one who is, we can work together to shine a light on happiness that, as it turns out, has been there all along.

Making changes and adjustments in life can be quite difficult but it is ultimately one of the most rewarding things you can do for yourself AND those around you. I have 10+ years of experience in the mental health field. I provide therapy to a diverse clientele including adolescents, young adults, adults, and couples.
Personally, I do not take myself too seriously. I tend to surround myself with people who laugh a lot and are travelers. In my free time, I fluctuate between a guilty pleasure reality show and learning French.
Many people struggle with past pains and emotional difficulties that are not attended to, or really, just not fully understood. Individual therapy is a place where you are free to be all aspects of yourself, get help in addressing these issues, and improving your life. I believe in viewing people holistically, and take into consideration all social and cultural factors they present with in order to provide an applicable and repairable experience.
Intimate relationships can be one of the best parts of life. However, they can also be quite difficult at times. Life happens and it is easy for couples to fall out of sync. I approach couples therapy by addressing issues that are blocking you and your partner’s ability to connect with one another and feel understood. I also provide you with the tools needed to be a healthy and happy couple.
Psychological assessments can provide a wealth of information about one’s functioning. It can be extremely helpful in clarifying diagnoses and providing appropriate treatment recommendations. I provide comprehensive and tailored assessments to clients of all ages and backgrounds to help you find the answers you are seeking.
Dr. Vanessa Torres-Garcia
Whether you need a switch in providers, or are new to therapy, the decision can be startling. My approach to psychotherapy is flexible and based on respect, commitment and evidence-based practices. I specialize in working with those who are experiencing adjustment issues, depression, anxiety, trauma, relational difficulties or cognitive deficits. In therapy, I practice transparency and empathy as a way to promote equality, awareness and empowerment. My goal is to continue to collaborate with you to discover the optimal path that promotes emotional healing.
As a Bilingual psychologist with experience working with diverse communities, I recognize the challenges of acculturation processes and I am committed to promote services based on cultural competence. I work collaboratively with patients on their goals and treatment options, always taking into consideration their personal background, unique experiences, priorities and values.
I see each day as a new opportunity to challenge and improve upon myself. I will invite you to do the same and will support you continuously. Traveling to different countries, trying new recipes, and dancing are always integrated into my self-care. I look forward to learning what is important to you!
Life challenges and self-doubt can interfere and prevent us from aspiring to live a fulfilling and meaningful life. Together we will find behavioral strategies to help you find what works and is unique to you.
Diversity plays a dynamic role in mental health, and as a culturally competent and bilingual provider, it helps me to serve and better meet the needs of my patients. I am committed to the promotion of services in multicultural competence.
Because of the normal aging process, many individuals experience age-related changes that might be difficult to understand or manage. Accepting and adjusting to changes such as retirement, physical or health issues, memory or grief, might be a challenge for older adults and their caregivers. We can work together to identify common experiences of aging and to find techniques to adjust and cope in healthy and positive ways.
Psychological assessment offers significant benefits for both clinicians and patients in terms of diagnosis, qualification for special programs, treatment planning and progress. My education includes a formal component of Neuroanatomy, Neuropathology, Neuroassessment, and Neurorehabilitation courses and practices. Assessing cognitive and emotional status, illuminates strengths and difficulties impacting adjustment to medical conditions or physical rehabilitation. I am well versed in cognitive rehabilitation techniques and I implement these with patients affected by cognitive impairment, dementia, CVA and TBI, in order to promote adjustment, recovery, functional independency, and quality of life.
