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, Military and Veterans Issues, Mood Disorders, Post-traumatic Stress
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Mindfulness Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy
