My name is David Rice and I want to first say that because you are here you are already on the path to healing. My profession as a therapist is one that I take very seriously because I know that people are valuable, their lives are precious, and joy and contentment should be in each and every one of us.
I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor located in Idaho. I have twenty years experience providing clinical support to a diverse population over that amount of time. In 2001 I earned my Master's degree in Clinical Counseling from Adams State University, Alamosa, Colorado. I am also a National Certified Counselor. I have worked with all age groups and have experience working with a wide range of presenting issues including relationship conflicts, self image, grief and loss, trauma, motivation and anxiety.
I would describe my approach as client-centered and solution-focused. I provide a compassionate, empathetic style, while also empowering and challenging clients to be their best selves. I use an integrated approach with clients, drawing from Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Solution focused therapy, Client-Centered Therapy and Rational Emotive Behavior therapy. I encourage clients to set realistic goals and objectives throughout the therapy process and I am committed to joining, supporting, and encouraging my clients in that process.

Cool, calm, collected, compassionate and caring. David built rapport with me rather quickly, something that I didn't expect from a therapist on the first call. Grateful for the opportunity to bounce ideas and grow through David's insights, coaching, and consultation. He fits me!

After only 2 sessions with Mr Rice I already am doing better than I have in years. I like how he responds with "I understand" it's so simple and yet validating.

I wished I found David sooner. He has helped me exact the change and understanding I needed in my life. David listens, doesn't pry for unnecessary details, speaks encouragingly. Or time sorrento together is always productive. Thank you, David

David is a wonderful therapist, and very easy to talk to. He’s a great listener and he’s calmly and effectively helped me formulate a healthy mindset and view of the situation we’ve been discussing together. David is very kind and great at what he does. I’m very thankful for David and I can’t recommend him enough.
