About me

I have been enjoying counseling for the past 6 years because it gives me the opportunity to help others get past problems, gain more confidence, and enjoy enriching relationships! I enjoy working with clients with all mental health difficulties including depression, anxiety, personal insecurities, self-esteem issues, relationship problems, trauma, overcoming ineffectiveness, and stress management. However, I am quite skilled in many other personal mental performance areas, due to my experiences. I use person centered and cognitive behavioral therapy to build a trusting and supportive relationship with my clients. I live a vastly fulfilling life myself and believe healing comes through the connection I have with my clients. I have had great success in moving others past their difficulties so they can live a healthy, enriching life. I am prepared to bridge the chasm between where you are now and the life you feel you could be living. I believe the riches of the world are the people in it. Let me help you overcome problems and become the person you want.

David has been both responsive and thoughtful in his counseling approach. I am very pleased that BetterHelp paired me with David. While I do not expect to require counseling for a long period of time, I certainly expect to keep David’s information ready for when life gets tough and I need an objective sounding board. David Chiddix is 10/10 therapist!

David is a great listener and he communicates that good listening. He asks questions to get me to think about whatever situation is being discussed so solutions can be made. He makes suggestions that are logical and reasonable. His ability to encourage and let you know you matter is exceptional and he is truly a genuine and kind soul who takes his job seriously and does it well.
