Dan Becco M.S., M.F.T.
Therapist and Life Coach
Everyone can face interpersonal, emotional or professional/financial problems at one time or another. Most of the time, these problems can be resolved independently. But sometimes it’s not easy to find a solution. You, or your partner may need to seek out a professional who can give you the tools you need to address problems successfully. This is where I can help.
I treat problems in the most direct manner possible, and seek out the simplest solution available. Instead of solving my clients’ problems for them, I give them knowledge and skills they can use to find their own solutions.

I believe that your therapy/life coaching should actually give you results. If you are not experiencing relief and getting demonstrably better, then whatever you are doing is not for you.
I would like to answer some commonly asked questions when a person begins to look for a therapist or coach. While I may fail to answer every issue, please feel free to contact me for more information.
I currently see a wide variety of adults in Chicago and virtually, who are looking for some type of change in their life. This change may relate to how they feel about things, their relationships, their physical and psychological health, their professional lives or their families. Associated problems could include depression, anxiety, “feeling stuck”, stress, loss, or trouble getting what they want in life.
I have been providing therapy to adults, couples and families in the Chicago area for over 15 years. I have worked with a wide variety of individuals from different ethnic, spiritual, socioeconomic and age backgrounds. I have worked with individual men, individual women, a whole variety of couples; married and not married, parents and their children with many different life transition difficulties.
Some examples of succesfully-resolved situations include:
* Helping a man recover from alcohol abuse and start filling his life with pursuits that he loved.
* Helping a woman, who was stuck in an unfulfilling job, work through her depression to a career that she always wanted.
* Helping a couple communicate better with each other, developing more trust, kindness and respect for each other.
* Helping a man recover from his separation/divorce following the painful end of his marriage.
* Helping an artist manage his anxiety, think differently and
incorporate more of what made him happy into his day to day life.
* Helping a family talk with their daughter, helping the daughter
express herself, so that conflict decreased and members enjoyed one another again.
In my work with individuals, couples or families, I use a client-centered, collaborative, eclectic practice model that draws from the most effective elements of several approaches including Insight, Holistic Health, Cognitive-Behavioral, Systems and Solution-Oriented. The result of this is that I will adapt my approach to best meet your unique needs and personal
style. For example, some individuals prefer little input from the therapist, while others need help in bringing out their thoughts and feelings.
Length of treatment can also be adapted, from a short-term, goal-oriented approach to a more open-ended, insight-oriented relationship. Because I believe in empowering my clients to create a life they love, many of my clients begin to see changes after only three sessions. We will work together to decide how long you will be in therapy, and the best indicator may be your own feeling of being “finished”.
I believe that therapy doesn’t have to be completely serious and painful, although sometimes healing and growth are not easy. Our meetings will be like talking with an understanding, trustworthy friend who supports and encourages you, who also has professional training and will respect your confidentiality. An introductory session will give you an opportunity to explore the possibilities and make sure you feel comfortable and confident.
I encourage you to give it a try!
