Dan Guerra


Dan Guerra, Psy.D. is a clinical psychologist, public speaker, and executive coach, with over 25 years’ experience as a psychotherapist and facilitator of human development. He values and incorporates improvisation, yoga-based approaches, play, mindfulness, trauma-informed interventions and parts work, along with the latest contributions of neuroscience to promote well-being for individuals and groups across a broad range of populations and settings.

Dan has delivered courses and workshops that have focused on emotional intelligence, having difficult conversations, change management, delegation, and other aspects of leadership development for companies such as TGIF’s, AMEX, Wellington Management, Energizer Holdings, International, MKG, BOCES, and Parkland Hospital.  He enjoys and thrives in the emotional connection with others and creation of safe environments to play and explore growth while simultaneously making space for, and working through conflict and challenge.

Dan studied philosophy and psychology at Franklin & Marshall College and received his Master’s and Doctorate degrees in clinical psychology at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.  During his studies, he gained a passion for the dramatic arts and performance and entered the world of theater, writing, and improvisation. He was an artistic partner and performer with Village Playback Theatre for 10 years and performs currently in community-based theater in upstate New York.

Dan co-authored the book, From Stress To Centered:  A Practical Guide to a Happier and Healthier You, and is currently finishing his latest manuscript for a book that addresses the psychology of shoestring, adventure travel, including his many personal travel stories. He loves nature and has had the opportunity to hike in over 50 countries across the globe. There has seldom been a mountain that Dan would not like to climb and much to the chagrin of his aging body, he is not being metaphorical.
