I am a licensed professional counselor licensed in Missouri. I have been in the mental health field for over 10 years gaining experience with many populations struggling with a vast array of issues. I have worked with individuals and families struggling with anxiety, family conflict, relationship issues, intimacy issues, addiction, depression, motivation, and self-esteem.
I believe in being warm and compassionate with all my clients. I am very open minded, there will be no judgment on my end. I am solution focused and strength focused. I lean towards using cognitive behavioral, person centered, and family therapies. I believe a collaborative approach to therapy yields the best results.
It takes a lot for someone to seek help in order to live a happier and more fulfilling life. I am here to help those in need to not only start this journey together but to help those individuals to develop the tools they need to continue and succeed in their journey.
I look forward to working with you

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for David Hancock. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
David is an extremely good listener. He's also a remarkably fast problem solver... he always has constructive feedback, often with enlightening perspectives.
