I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with a Master’s Degree in clinical psychology from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology in Chicago. I provide individual therapy to adults and adolescents, as well as couples and family therapy.
My practice is a general outpatient practice, best suited for those who desire improvement in their love life, family life, work life, or in their physical health and wellness. My approach emphasizes the importance of practicing new behaviors outside of the therapy.
One practice that has been shown to be helpful, and which in many ways provides a groundwork for psychotherapy, is the practice of mindfulness.
Ultimately, my mission as a therapist is to help you live a better, more fulfilling life.

David is a good listener and easy to talk to. His suggestions and observations have been helpful for me. It is good to have someone to bounce ideas off of and receive suggestions from. David fits that need.
David is already my favorite therapist after one session. HE is kind and understanding and epically non-judgmental.
David has been very straight into the point. He is also allowed me the Space to explore complex Things I am processing such as identity, relationships with men, and helping me go from thinking I was going to break up with my partner, so getting ready to be married. He’s a no nonsense guy, and I appreciate that and the therapist. Would highly recommend.
I’ve been with David for a few weeks now, and he has been entirely helpful in many ways; he’s offered me many ways to deal with issues that I’m having as well as helps me to identify where those same problems come from. He’s a strong listener and provides important and helpful input relative to whatever we’re discussing in each session. No matter the topic, he is very open and I never feel ashamed to bring up any of my issues that I’m dealing with, and he is always eager to help. Very thankful to have someone like David here to talk to.
David have been supportive and I have learned so much from him. Looking forward to more.
Mindful, thoughtful and a serious listener. I feel like I'm doing important work when talking to David and I feel heard, supported and at times challenged (in a good way).
Sessions with David are always productive and help me to create the strategies I need to grow stronger as I build confidence and inner joy.
Three sessions in so far and my counselor Mr.Schwartz has meet me where im at time after time. Even when the communication gets difficult for me he helps me find the language for the words and feelings I want to convey. I am confident this work is greatly contributing to my overall betterment
