Dava McCoy


About me

Hello! My name is Dava McCoy and I thank you for considering me for the privilege of being part of your therapeutic journey. I am a clinically licensed family and marriage therapist licensed in both Kansas and California with over 12 years of experience working with individuals, couples, families, and groups. I have worked in a variety of settings and with clients with a wide range of presenting concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, codependency, attachment issues, phase of life transitions, and interpersonal development. I also have helped many people who have experienced abuse, neglect, trauma, and grief/loss.

My therapy style is warm, transparent, and interactive. I believe that trust and communication are the fundamental bases of any therapeutic relationship. I pride myself in treating every individual that I encounter with respect, sensitivity, compassion, and fairness. I don't believe in stigmatizing labels or allowing diagnosis to define oneself. I have found that every client I have ever encountered is stronger and braver than they even can imagine and that no clinical term can define their story or their worth!

My main treatment modalities include cognitive-behavioral, family systems, structural, solution-focused, trauma-informed, and dialectical-behavioral therapeutic approaches. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific presenting needs and goals for our time working together.

It takes courage to seek therapeutic assistance and to take the first steps towards creating real and lasting change in your life. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you throughout your journey. Thank you again for your time and consideration!
