I wasn’t really sure what I needed, but I knew I needed something. David has helped me make huge improvements to my mental health. He provides the most relaxed environment with his personable attitude. David constantly offers insight and new research for the topics we are discussing and always makes me feel safe saying whatever I want. No matter how silly I feel, he always has a great reaction, making it easier and easier to discuss even the hardest of topics.

After only 2 visits with David Spellman, I am already impressed. He asks such thought provoking questions. He is helping me look at situations differently.
I'm not sure how long I'll be able to afford this service, but I think it is helping!
