My name is David and I have been working as a therapist for over 7 years. I started working in a group home setting in Rochester, NY where I worked for 2 years. I then transferred to a Mental Health Clinic and worked between 5-6 years providing outpatient therapy for a caseload of over 100 people. As a therapist I excel at active listening and building rapport with a wide range of individuals. I truly enjoy working with individuals on processing life events and addressing unwanted/excessive symptoms, while developing skills to help them manage things independently in the future. It is my goal to identify your strengths and develop skills to effectively manage and reduce mental health symptoms to ensure the highest quality of life possible.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Bipolar disorder
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy

I started meeting with David earlier this year while going through some relationship troubles. Since that time I have met with him almost every week for 10 months and have found his expertise and style to be invaluable. He helped me navigate through some exceedingly challenging and confusing times, and I really appreciate it. I couldn't recommend David more.

Best Therapist Ever

David is a very attentive and compassionate therapist with undeniable expertise. He also has a great sense of humor and makes it so easy to build a rapport with him and open up. I really trust his opinion and always feel heard and understood after a session with him, while at the same time faced with truthfulness. I would recommend him to anyone I know who looks for a therapist, and even to those who don't, because I have no doubt that anyone would benefit from those conversations with him. Thank you, David for your kindness and professionalism.

I have been seeing David for well over a year and it has been a great experience thus far. David is very patient, listens with an empathetic ear but also offers up solutions and ways to solve issues showing that he is active and walking right there beside you in a compassionate, warm, trusting, respectful, and non-judge mental way. David is the type of therapist that just feels like a buddy you have known for a long time and can be confident and comfortable with right off the bat. I wish more therapists and counselors were like him! I plan on continuing to work with David and definitely have reaped the benefits of his care.
