Daniel Birdsong


A Message From Daniel: My name is Daniel Birdsong, and I am honored to support individuals, couples, and families through counseling in Alabaster and the south Shelby County community. I have been in the fields of education and counseling for 10 years, having served as a teacher, school counselor, therapist, and professor. I approach counseling from a person-centered and strengths-based perspective focused on clients’ individual goals for personal change and growth. My goal is to partner with and support you in your own journey of development and self-improvement.

For fun, I enjoy coffee and a good podcast. I also like watching movies and TV mini-series.
