My ideal client is someone that is willing to look at the big picture of life and is open to collaborating with me leverging my expertise as well as, with my help, learning to use their own instinct. When it comes to children my approach is to collaborate with parents to best identify what coping tools and skillset are needed. When appropriate I follow a family systems approach and incorporate working with multiple family members at once, such as in family conflict or sibling rivalry.

I am David Growcock, licensed professional counselor with over 15 years’ experience working with individuals, couples and families overcome problems such as: communication; anger problems; trust issues; infidelity; open marriage; step family, divorce, and co-parenting.
Are you struggling in your marriage/relationship? Does this sound familiar? Hi, my husband and I do not seem to be happy anymore. Over the years we have both made some bad mistakes and have hurt each other. Now, we hardly talk and when we do it becomes an argument, we say a lot of hurtful things to each other. In our last argument, things got really out of hand, and he left the house, slamming the door, and hasn't been back home since. I have been crying since last night. We love each other, but, after our last fight I just don’t know what to do or where to go from here. I really need some help.

I believe that we are created with potential for balance and harmony, however, life is not always easy, we may struggle at times to reach this balance. When we get "stuck" or face difficult challenges, we must first identify which areas of life need adjusting or strengthening, and then, we set out to make the necessary changes. Whether it is physical, emotional, spiritual or mental unbalance, we can positively impact our lives by starting to work in one area, and, since they are all connected, the rest will follow.
