I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with dual master's degrees in psychology and social work. I have been in the mental health field since 1993 and have experience working with clients dealing with several issues including depression, anxiety, medical/health issues, social issues, family, relationship and parenting challenges, military and veteran issues, and trauma (including abuse and neglect). My approach tends to be client centered and relaxed. I view the client-therapist relationship as a partnership where we walk together on this journey to discover the tools and assist the client in learning to utilize them so that the client can live a happier, more fulfilling and successful life. I use cognitive behavioral therapy, functional family therapy, solution focused therapy and tools from motivational interviewing and trauma-informed care in my sessions. Drawing from these modalities, I am able to shape each client's treatment plan to fit their situation according to their needs, challenges, strengths, and personalities; by doing this it allows for a unique therapeutic partnership that sets us up for success. I am happy you are here! It takes courage to ask for help, and you've taken that first important step - congratulations! I look forward to working with you.

Hello, my name is David Kolker and I am Licensed Clinical Social Worker. The firs question I ask every client is "tell me who you are." This question is the basis of all the time we will spend together. It is the main question that will determine the progress of your therapy. A primary piece of this approach is self-disclosure by myself. How can I expect you to be open and honest if I am not willing to do the same? Many therapists don't believe in this theory; however, I have found it to be extremely effective. The concept is that I have the same issues as you do; however, my pain tolerance is extremely less than yours. What does this mean? I don't wait till the pain gets unbearable to take action. I have owned large primary mental health facilities for the past 14 years and worked with a diverse population of males, females, couples and families. Issues such as lack of childhood modeling, insecure attachment, sexual assault and abuse, codependency and shame. It is my opinion that shame and codependency are the primary issues with the vast majority of issues we face. I will stop at this point and invite you to contact me and discuss the issues you are dealing with. Remember, I am no different than you.

Before seeing your Town of Pines therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Town of Pines.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Town of Pines licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice.

Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you.
