Welcome. I’m Dan Keusal. I’m now in my 25th year serving individuals and couples 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 at 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.
I am a member of the Jungian Psychotherapists Association,(where I served on the leadership Council for 5 years).I am also a member of the Northwest Alliance For Psychoanalytic Study.
In addition to 24 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 am a Past President of the Seattle Counselors Association (2006-2007), and served on the SCA Board of Directors in various capacities for three years.
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 and at Georgetown University. I also completed basic training in shamanism with Michael Harner’s Foundation for Shamanic Studies.
After two years of training 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.
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 personal growth.
For more than 20 years, I have led workshops and lectured on 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 Northwest Astrological Conference, and dozens of other churches, businesses, and community groups.

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 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, and staying alert for the next movie, song, or poem that will enrich my soul.
