Hello, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Arizona. My background includes working in a variety of settings with adolescents, families, adults both young and older. Because I have worked at many levels in organizations from a direct care counselor, supervisor of many behavioral health professionals to CEO, my experiences have exposed me to all types of people facing many challenges from personal to professional.
My approach to counseling is to establish myself as an ally to the individuals with whom I work. Through active listening, often times using humor when appropriate, I will attempt to fully understand the perspective and feelings that the person has and is experiencing. From the first session on, I try to help people take effective control of their situation by jointly designing plans that usually begin with small steps and build over time to dealing with the issues that contributed to the person asking for help.
I especially enjoy working with people who are going through transitions, such as, starting or ending school, changing jobs, experiencing divorce or loss, relationship struggles or even preparing for retirement. My approach is to help people examine their values, identify and build on their strengths, focus on acquiring new skills to deal with current and future problems and take action to change their lives in ways that they choose to be most helpful. While working together we may decide to modify or change plans as we go along, but the goals will always be clear and achievable

Good listener and helpful
Dave is a wise and compassionate counselor. He has offered great advice in each session that has helped me to gain greater clarity on important questions in my life.
When I joined BetterHelp I requested a therapist that was gay, male and over 45. With David I got two out of the three (he's male and over 45) and I couldn't have been more pleased. He's a great listener. I had to get comfortable talking and being listened to. He gave me so much useful, practical advice in dealing with my mother and moving forward from childhood trauma. The only reason I'm not continuing is because I found out my insurance pays for therapy. Thank you David!
I am a woman and was wondering if I could undergo personal therapy with a man, but Bradley has proven to be a great therapist with wisdom and a kind heart. He is a great listener and can piece together causes of things with only a few minutes of explaining your situation, and asks all the right questions. He is funny and smiles a lot, and despite him being a man, and our age gap, I feel he has been the most understanding therapist I’ve had yet. I look forward to continue to work with him!
Dave has been extremely helpful. Very understanding and great in direction.
He listens and cares I appreciate him helping me get better
