About Me

Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness! These words inspire us to look forward to a bright future, something we can count on as we move through life. But what happens when the life we hoped for slips out of our grasp? When our careers stall, or when our relationships go sour, or when we can’t shake off the effects of painful experiences?

Since earning my MS in Clinical Counseling from Mount Mary University in Milwaukee, I have learned that each of us is full of talent and potential. We all have something important to contribute to the world. All we need is a way to discover the unique qualities, drives and passions that make us who we are.

My approach to treatment is based on Solution Focused Brief Counseling. My goal is to help people find the strong, hopeful and capable parts of their personality and strengthen them in every day life. We do this first by exploring your key relationships and how they have impacted your life over time. Once we uncover your (not so hidden) strengths, we work together to improve your well being.

My experience includes working with singles and couples, as well as men seeking career transition counseling. I have worked with people from all faiths, gender identity and sexual orientation.

How I can be of service: If you looking for help: (1) building a better future, particularly in your career (2) overcoming relationship challenges, or (3) coming to terms with painful memories so you can move on, I look forward to working with you to help you meet those goals.

David was great to talk with! He was very supportive while also helping me think of ways to handle my situation. He gave me a lot of things to think about and use in the future. He is such a great counselor!

My first counseling session exceeded my expectations. I did not meet or pick David but I truly feel he is the right fit for me. He listened to me. He synthesized. He reinforced. He provided guidance. That is all that I can ask for. I look forward to my next session with him.

Work with me!
