Daniel W Gaiser, LCSW


As a partial hospital social worker, I am strongly committed to, and derive deep satisfaction from, delivering state-of-the-art behavioral health care (mental health and substance abuse) to individuals whose symptoms are at the acute level.  I feel fortunate to be providing these services at a time in which advances in neuroscience are continuing to improve the effectiveness of both medication and therapy treatments. I have been especially impacted by Maine’s first-in-the-country Office of Trauma Services, which, in 1996, introduced new “trauma informed treatment” to the state’s mental health system. These innovations, which emphasize compassion for mental health woundedness, have improved treatment across the full spectrum of mental health suffering.

Clinical Interests
The emerging new generation of “brain science”-based therapies which have ever greater effectiveness in reducing the suffering of acute symptoms.  I have lived in the Middle East, and in China, and have a keen interest in the broadening repertoire of mind-body approaches which are informing current health care.
