I worked with Dave for about 5 months and throughout that time, I felt immense support from him. Prior to working with him, I had struggled to find a therapist that was the right fit for me. And so, when we started working together, I was pleasantly surprised to have found the right fit.
Dave is a fantastic therapist. He actively listens to you and is able to dissect and synthesize the information thrown at him. The two main things that I loved about working with Dave is that he recognizes his postionality and actively acknowledges it in every conversation and he asks great questions that challenge you and make you think in the moment and well beyond your therapy session. Additionally, I left every session feeling heard and supported which brought a huge sense of relief.
Overall, I honestly could not have asked for a better person to be my therapist. Thank you Dave for getting me through a really tough time. I am incredibly grateful for all your help and support over the last 5 months.
