Portrait of Danny, Therapist at Cura Mental Health.

Daniel Navarro, ASW


Bilingual in English & Spanish 


I'm Daniel Navarro, a retired combat veteran with 20 years of dedicated service in the United States Marines. Having personally navigated the complexities of substance use and mental health, I recognize the urgent need to extend help to others facing similar issues.


I completed my Master's in Social Work at the University of Southern California through their specialized Military/MSW program. I have the capability to engage effectively with individuals and groups, offering specialized skills in risk evaluation and case management. These skills are especially pertinent in a private practice setting where complex recovery cases often require finely-tuned communication and decision-making abilities.


I am committed to helping people unlock their true potential, free from the challenges associated with addiction. Recognizing the influential role family can play in a person's recovery, my practice incorporates family involvement when desired and appropriate. My therapeutic toolkit includes various evidence-based modalities such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness, and Narrative Therapy. I advocate a holistic approach to recovery, believing that an open mind to varied therapeutic methods can greatly expand the avenues for personal transformation.

Outside of my practice, I serve as a Peer Leader in several veterans' organizations, including the Wounded Warrior Project, Team Red White and Blue, Team Rubicon Disaster Response, the Mission Continues, and the Veterans of Foreign Wars. These organizations provide vital support not only to veterans but also to their families and communities.

If you're interested in working with someone who brings a unique blend of personal experience and professional expertise to the table, I am available to guide and support you on your journey towards recovery and well-being.
