Provider Bio down arrow

Dan Buss can empathize with many of the patients he sees as a licensed clinical social worker.

“I know what it’s like to live in a pressure cooker of family dysfunction and stress. That’s pretty much why I decided to become a social worker,” he said. “With every patient, I look for their good qualities and strengths and I’m not judgmental. I want to know where they have been, where they are now and where they want to go. Having a faith-based counseling approach is appreciated by many of my patients.”

He said he finds it rewarding when a patient he has worked with is able to be successful, with an improved sense of coping skills, peace and joy.

Raised in Milwaukee, Dan earned his master’s degree in social work in his hometown at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He has worked in the field for more than 35 years.

Dan enjoys watching all Wisconsin college and professional sports teams, and he plays tennis when he has a chance. What Dan enjoys most is spending time with his wife and family.
