Hello! My profile says John, but I prefer to go by my middle name, David. I am a licensed therapist in Virginia and Indiana with 17 years of professional work experience. I have extensive experience working with clients with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. As a veteran and former first responder, I also understand the unique life experiences of those populations, and greatly enjoy serving those who serve their community and nation.
I am comfortable supporting the style of communication that works best for you, but I'm a firm believer in at least occasional video sessions. Being connected to people is vitally important to our mental wellness, even if it's over a video link. I do ask all my clients to participate in a video session early during our work together, and at least periodically after that.
I believe that YOU are the expert on you! I am here to listen, guide, explore, support, and empower you on your "wellness expedition". I'm proud of you for starting this journey, because it takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life, and to take the first steps towards a change.
Additional areas of focus: Trauma and abuse, Career difficulties, Coping with Natural or Human-Caused Disaster, Drug and Alcohol Addiction, Fatherhood Issues, First Responder Issues, Isolation / Loneliness, Life Purpose, Men's Issues, Midlife Crisis, Military and Veterans Issues, Mood Disorders, Post-traumatic Stress, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy

David is an amazing listener and he catches comments that are worth exploring. I journal regularly and share them with him. I adore that he takes time to read them between sessions as it makes our time together more productive and opens up the conversation regardless of my current mood during our session. He really has taken time to get to know me. I am so grateful to have connected with him and my journey continues to be healthy and my growth has been amazing.
