I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor currently working out of Florida and have been doing counseling work for over 5 years.
The foundation of my personal orientation is that "the client is the most important person in the therapeutic process." Building on client strengths is something I use in my sessions to really try and understand the client and help facilitate them to make the changes they want to make in their lives.
I have over 5 years of experience working with clients in the group setting and individual settings. My specialty lies within anger management, depression and anxiety. I love listening to people and helping them find the tools to achieve their goals.

David has been an extremely helpful resource for me after I went through several major life changes and decided to seek some help. Having someone who is friendly and open with me while working through my issues has proven immensely helpful. I would recommend David for anyone who is uncomfortable in their current situation and wants to help improve their frame of mind.
David has been extremely respectful and responsive. He reassures and has extra resources of strategies that help you cop with your situation. He has been extremely helpful in just a short period of speaking to one another.
Mr. Shirly is really great! He takes the time to listen and help while also making sure you’re understanding what’s going on yourself and not just telling you how you feel. He’s super easy to talk to and open up to. Highly recommend!
David has been amazing at helping me navigate my feelings and relationships within my life. He helps see different perspectives and challenges me to be honest with myself. He’s been great.
Many Thanks to Mr. Shirly for his support and trust. It has been a great help these last weeks. I was able to really gain some clarity and be able to vent in a way I had trouble with before. I would highly recommend him.
David always gives me tools which help me in my healing journey. He has his gentle way to make me listen what I need to. Rather than what I want to. He always encourage me to stay on my path of mindfulness which I know always pulls me out from the darkest place. He knows my strength well and try to nurture them.
Definitely easy to talk too and ask great questions.
Haven't been disappointed at all with having David for my counselor and using the better help tools. Highly recommend David to counsel for
substance abuse trauma,anger,depression,PTSD,and anxiety disorder.
David is a great help. He is able to put things into perspective and help you understand and process your emotions and feelings in a healthy manner. From a man who's never had any type of therapy before, he really helped me to accept that it's OK for men to have all these emotions and it's ok to talk about them in safe places. I highly recommend David!
I look forward my sessions with David... we only had 2 sessions and I felt a really good connection. He listen and is emphatic about my concerns. Finds ways to stimulate my thinking and offers different perspectives. I recommend him!
Thank you David for all of your advice and listening to my issues.
Very knowledgeable and easy to talk to and get along with. I would recommend David to anyone struggling with anxiety issues!
David is a fantastic. He asks really great questions and takes the time to understand you and provide solutions that are useful.
David is very personable, reliable, and easy to work with. He always finds a way to get me to work out my issues in a collaborative fashion that feels really like I’m actually learning how to help myself. He has been a really wonderful addition to my life.
I'm not one who likes Therapy, however Dave makes it seem more like friends talking . He is absolutely outstanding, I would highly recommend him to all I know.
Best Therapist I’ve ever had!!
