For more than five years, David has dedicated his career to helping clients with anxiety, depression, life transitions, relationship issues, and career and work issues. He uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and mindfulness. David particularly enjoys his work with young adults dealing with a range of stressors, such as relationships, professional identity, and work-life balance, all while exploring their own identities and questioning some of the beliefs they developed earlier in life. He finds that young adults are particularly open to therapy and making changes.
As a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and National Certified Counselor, David sees his work as a therapist as an extraordinary opportunity to see the uniqueness of each individual, their experiences, and how they relate to their world. Because therapy draws from a wide range of evidence-based solutions, David has the opportunity every day to collaborate with his clients to find the solutions that have the potential to make real differences in their lives.
David uses an approach based upon openness and acceptance with each client to explore their unique story and what it might mean to their lives today. He maintains a commitment with his clients to use every session as an opportunity to look for solutions and help the client move ahead.
David came to the field of therapy having had a professional career, a family, and a lifetime of cross-cultural experiences that he finds helpful in connecting with people from various backgrounds and experiences.
