(LPC-S)

About Me

Issues: Trauma, Self-Esteem, Parenting, Professional Coaching, Stress/Anxiety, Relationship Issues, Self-Esteem

Change is inevitable and it can also be uncomfortable and scary. Many of us already have the strength to manage change but need a little help finding the courage and confidence. That is why David takes a collaborative, flexible, transformational, dynamic, and strength-based approach to empower clients to face life’s circumstances as productively as possible. He can equip you with the tools to tackle all your personal and professional obstacles.

As a licensed professional counselor, David works with clients of all ages and backgrounds on a variety of mental health concerns including professional burnout, stress, anxiety, grief, family conflict, trauma, anger management, depression, Attention- Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and self-esteem. David is a specialist in helping trauma workers and a doctoral candidate at Sam Houston State University, where he educates on professional identity dissonance, resiliency, and authenticity. He has been interviewed on CBS, PBS, USA Today, and World News.

David takes a non-judgmental and inquisitive approach while helping individuals, families, and couples to discover their inner strengths. He provides a neutral safe space, where clients are free to share whatever struggles they are having. Not everyone is the same in the way they approach life’s challenges, which is why David works with each client to develop a customized treatment plan that fits their needs. His goal is to help clients heal from past wounds, be energized to continue on a positive path forward, and to recognize personal strengths. When David isn’t helping others with their passions, he is working on his own as an expressive art hobbyist.

Personal and professional growth can be challenging but it doesn’t have to feel impossible. Sometimes it just takes a little guidance and support to get to a better place.

We can help you get unstuck. The best is yet to come.

David is great! He's thoughtful, kind and supportive. He listens and is able to pick up on things that I might not even realize are important to my progress. He is perceptive and specific in his work - which is perfect for what I need.

I like David’s focus on the solution rather than the what , which is where my head always went. It’s great to have someone gently redirect your thinking and give you new perspectives on what can be accomplished with a little inner work. David is a good listener.

Written by J.O. on Dec 19, 2020 after counseling with David for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

David has been a wonderful counselor. He has a great way of making our sessions feel relaxed, like I’m chatting with friend, while also gauging what needs to be addressed to help me process my emotions or develop strategies for everyday life. He provided a good knowledge base for our sessions and I was able to carryover what I learned into my lifestyle. I’m so grateful for all he has done to facilitate me to accept myself, be present in the moment and support my family and community. I strongly recommend working him.

Written by J.O. on Sep 13, 2020 after counseling with David for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, and self esteem

David is a great therapist. He listens and doesn’t laugh at my jokes which I use as a tool to distract him forcing me to look at my own problems. But he doesn’t fall for my wily tricks and doesn’t laugh. It must be hard not to laugh because I am so funny which makes me admire him even more. Thank G_D this is anonymous and he will not ever know who this is.

David has been amazing! I would highly recommend him! Every session he has spent time developing ways of coping with my anxiety and helping me gain an better understanding of myself, my anxiety and where it’s stemming from. I was unsure about seeking counseling at first but after working with David that feeling went away.

David has been great so far.
