Daniel Domaguin, LCSW is a second-generation Ilokano immigrant, born and raised in Tiipai/southern Kumeyaay territory (south San Diego, CA). He approaches therapy as a collaboration, and views mental health treatment with a therapist as similar to going to a doctor or a dentist: sometimes, we need a specially trained person’s assistance to either help us feel better or check-up on us to ensure continued wellness. Daniel incorporates transformative justice, embodied social justice and the healing power of humor into his practice as a trainer, supervisor, and clinician. Outside of work, he enjoys Mother Nature, composting, crafting, martial arts, improvisational comedy and discussing random trivia.
