About me

As a Missouri Licensed Counselor with over 25years experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Challenged me and gave me alternatives to things I could never come up with on my own. He was like an older version of myself just much wiser and more intelligent.

Written on Aug 05, 2022 after therapy with David for 2 weeks on issues concerning family conflicts, and adhd

David is a great, heartwarming listener who ensures you get what you need from therapy by setting goals and being there for you on the way to achieving them. It was a pleasure working with him on my relationship with myself, food, my thoughts, and while going through my breakup. He's supported my transformation into a more mature and better person free of old patterns that were weighing me down. Endlessly grateful.
