Daniel was born in Burbank, CA and adopted as an infant. At the age of 8, his adopted mom suffered a cardiac arrest, went into a coma, and awoke 3 weeks later.
Upon awakening, it was discovered that she had suffered brain damage. For the next 13 years, Daniel and his father took care of her until his senior year of college when she passed away after suffering another cardiac arrest.
This trauma profoundly affected his perspective on life as well as his relationships. Over the years, he struggled with depression and suicidal thoughts.
His experience with the tools of Grief Recovery Method changed his life and perspective in a way he never thought possible.
Daniel has an incredible gift for connecting with people and loves partnering with them to experience deep healing from loss and trauma. He is also an international speaker, author of several books on education and parenting, and founder of Preparing Kids For Life, an organization devoted to helping Moms and Dads successfully navigate the journey of parenting.
