I have been practicing for over twelve years. I have a Master of Science in Counseling and a Masters of Arts in Anthropology, which I find helpful in many cases. I enjoy working with families and couples. I am veteran myself and have worked extensively with PTSD, caused by military and other events. I started working in a residential facility as an addiction therapist which almost always included work in the various co-morbidities. I have been doing general mental health for approximately eight years working with the Veterans Administration. As a result of the aforementioned work experiences I have a strong background in addiction, trauma work, personality disorders, anxiety, and depression. I have extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral, cognitive Processing, and Dialectic Behavioral therapies. I look forward to working with you.

David is a great listener, and is really great at pinpointing all the base-level, primordial stuff going on in my head that I could never uncover on my own. His guidance and counseling helped me get through a really stressful time in life, and as a result I've now got a much healthier relationship with myself.
