About The Counselor

Daniel Badillo, LMHC (License #006910)

Greetings! My name is Daniel Badillo, I’m a licensed mental health counselor and the owner of Polaris Mental Health Counseling Services. I have been a practicing mental health counselor in New York state since 2012. New York is my home state and I am proud to serve my community. Since graduating with honors from my graduate program at Iona College, I have worked with a diverse set of populations in a variety of environments, including psychiatric hospitals and mental health clinics. My primary focus is working with adolescents and adults to overcome personal struggles that they may face. I describe my approach as person centered with aspects of CBT, DBT, mindfulness and other evidence based interventions. Nobody is the same, so my approach is tailored to each individual. I take great pride in being able to help others navigate the often choppy waters of life while being able to grow as an individual and as a practitioner.
