Holly Daniels, PhD, is a licensed marriage and family therapist, meditation teacher, and mental health advocate. She brings her many years of experience working in dual diagnosis treatment centers to her Clinical Outreach role at Sober College. After earning her degree in clinical psychology, Holly worked for many years as a primary therapist at Monte Nido and Associates, the Valley Community Clinic and The Canyon residential treatment center in Malibu, where she specialized in treating those with complex issues including co-occurring addictions, eating disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and associated mood and anxiety disorders.
In her role Clinical Outreach at Sober College, Holly is able to integrate her complex clinical expertise with her passions for connecting people and spreading the word that recovery, health and wholeness can be exciting and fulfilling. Holly shares Sober College’s dedication to encouraging and promoting self-discovery and resiliency toward long-term, sustained recovery for every young adult who comes in for treatment. She feels fortunate to be able to continue her work alongside the compassionate, expert, invigorating team at Sober College.
A mother to two teenagers, Holly relies on her personal daily meditation practice to bring balance to her own life, and she enjoys teaching meditation and mindfulness skills to others. “I believe,” explains Holly, “that healing involves building connections with other healthy people and creating fulfilling, meaningful life experiences outside of treatment. Sober College offers young adults opportunities to do just that.” Holly loves watching clients get involved in ‘real world’ activities in ways that no other treatment centers provide. “I feel fortunate to be part of such an innovative and effective team.”
