David Bonfanti II

LMFT

About Me

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist having been licensed for about 16 years now. Overall, I have worked with most populations. My approach is straightforward.: " The problem is not the problem, the reaction to the problem is the problem." We can not change the past, we must accept what has happened, but with a renewed sense of empowerment and hope we can forge ahead to experience the quality of life we want and deserve. We often feel worse when we commence therapy, as self-examination is painful at times. That said, in the end, we will hopefully develop the skill set to manage whatever challenges come our way. Let's take the judgment out of our lives and move forward in the high calling of our daily lives.

I had another therapist here on BetterHelp before I changed therapists and found David. An absolute gem he is. He listens, is knowledgeable, and is overall a great guy to talk to! 10/10 recommend
