Dr. Gary Daniel is a mental health professional (neurolinguistic programming). He styles himself after Dr. Phil and falsely projects a fatherly/nice uncle persona which soon fades away to reveal a creepy sexual harasser in a way that is almost nauseating. I called him after finding him in the yellow pages in a very vulnerable, reaching out for the first time kind of mental state and asked what his fee was. I have very limited savings. He said he doesn't discuss the fee on the phone (first warning I should have heeded) and to come in for a free consult which I did. He was very personable, very engaging and an accomplished con artist/hard sell artist in my opinion. I take full responsibility for the fact that I overrode my own gut feeling because, by a fluke, he had known my uncle in the past and we talked about that in a friendly and engaging way, and I agreed to pay his fee of $4,000.00 for 40 weeks of therapy up front and agreed to his stated fact that he does not give refunds. There was nothing in writing but my check. After 4 sessions, it became abundantly clear that he enjoys degrading women (referred to me as a "b*tch" which I objected to) and the sessions were spent asking me personal questions in such a sickening way about my love/sex life which I answered sincerely because I trusted that it was part of the "therapy." In only one session did anything like "neurolinguistic programming" take place. As soon as I understood what he was doing, I stopped seeing him after referring him to a sexual harassment website that he could consult and hopefully recognize what he was doing. He denied it as those type of men do. I, of course, lost my money and did not want to go to small claims court due to the private nature of the help I was seeking. I don't care about the money, which was 1/3 of my entire savings. I take full responsibilty for being the vulnerable and too open victim of a con artist and, incredibly, being talked into agreeing to pay up front. I just don't want any other woman to go through this and lose this kind of money and end up feeling much worse for meeting with him.
