About me

I have enjoyed being a therapist for the past 7 years, helping clients with all mental health difficulties. I live a vastly fulfilling life with my family of a wife, 6 kids, 4 cats, and my loving Yorkie named Reggie. I am extensively qualified in using CBT and Gottman couples therapy. I will help you in our sessions to overcome insecurities and develop the skills you need to feel secure, prepared, and proud. You will feel better as a person and learn real solutions for what you need to do. You’ll gain 1) coping tools - including developing better habits, routines, and self care strategies, 2) relationship tools - including improving conversation, being able to comfortably navigate conflict, learning how to avoid relationship-ruining habits, and promoting a more positive perspective, and 3) confidence building tools - including growing a more confident mindset, doing favorite hobbies, performing good mental health activities, and having a future plan for both the short term and long term to live a satisfying, secure life.

David is a great therapist. He not only listens but asks the right questions to get you on a path think deeper on a subject. He also does a great job with making recommendations without making them feel like an obligation. More of an invitation to practice new skills. I highly recommend David.

David is always positive and supportive and offers me insightful, sound advice on how to handle difficult situations. He also is very responsive to messages and is thorough in reading my journal to keep updated on my daily activities, thoughts, and struggles. If I am unable to attend therapy sessions last minute, he is very understanding and positively supports me in my endeavors. I unequivocally recommend David for anyone needing guidance in their life.
