I see clients remotely and have evening openings until 8pm! I treat everything from stress, life changes, and the search for meaning and happiness to addiction (alcohol and other use disorders), anxiety disorders, specific phobias, and depressive disorders. The change factor in therapy varies. Sometimes we are too stuck in our own thinking or are lost in our emotions. Sometimes we flee from pain, and sometimes we need to create new meaning. Change occurs when we risk navigating our inner and outer worlds differently, and repeat this process until it becomes second-nature. This isn't easy, and takes time, but is very doable.

Positive mental health is a right for all, critical to managing daily life, and necessary to realize one's full potential and authentic self. Although life can saddle us with trauma and extreme stress, counseling gives us the tools and support to understand the roots of our stress and develop through it. Therapy promotes and emphasizes wellness, empowerment, and growth. It's a powerful way to explore and optimize our holistic wellbeing. Contacting a professional for therapy can feel intimidating. However, seeking counseling early on can help deescalate issues and equip us with tools to manage and prevent future issues.

As a counseling psychologist, the majority of my work is focused on helping individuals negotiate the emotional setbacks they encounter throughout their lives. Feeling disconnected from ourselves and others, individuals can easily become depressed, anxious, or feel broken. My work in individual therapy centers on helping my clients to reconnect to stronger parts of themselves. I utilize an integrative approach that combines the science of psychology with interpersonal warmth, acceptance and understanding.

Can you describe a therapist as “kick-a$s”? I’m not even sure. If you can, that’s how we’d describe him. He’s smart, funny, and really digs in. If you got something you need figured out, he’s definitely someone you want on your team. David genuinely wants you to be happy, and will do what he can to make sure you are. He thrives on understanding. Thus, clients that work with him will certainly be understood for who they are, what they need, and what is holding them back.

As a parent of a struggling teenage son, you want to do whatever you can to help get your teen on the right path. I help struggling teenage guys discover their identity, realize their strengths, and use those strengths to catapult into adulthood with a sense of competence and confidence. Adolescence is an exciting time where teens form their unique identity, build meaningful social connections, and learn to think in an innovative way. Ironically, what makes adolescence so exciting can also make it enormously stressful for both teens and their caretakers.

Male Therapists

As a man, why might I want to see a male therapist?

There are many reasons a man might wish to work with a male therapist, including a degree of shared identity, which may help client and therapist connect to each other and allow for a more free-flowing discussion of issues that can be deeply personal. Some men may feel more comfortable talking to a male therapist about relationship concerns, the pressures they feel around the roles society and family place on men, career or job challenges, self-esteem, or anger problems. For some men who have not had a male role models in their lives, a good male therapist may be especially helpful.

How can I find out about a therapist’s experience treating men?

Individuals looking for treatment should feel comfortable directly asking a therapist about their history treating men overall and the issues that arise in therapy with men. A good therapist will be happy to discuss such matters as well as their educational background, approach to treatment, and how they think they can aid a prospective client. Prospective clients should also ask what the expectation is for treatment, and what the fee structure is, and whether and which insurance plans are accepted.

Can clients benefit from having a therapist of the same gender?

Therapy is not gender-specific, but some men as well as women feel more comfortable opening up about their experiences and history with a male therapist. An individual may feel that they have to explain less background information and be on the same page more quickly, particularly when discussing gender-specific challenges, in the case of male clients. Some women have prior negative experiences with women that predispose them to prefer working with a male in therapy. That said, a good clinician can transcend most if not all gender concerns. Ultimately, the most important factor in therapy is the connection and trust the client is able to build with the practitioner.

Would a male therapist have specific training in treating men?

Generally, no. There are no certifications for treating men specifically, but there are continuing education classes that therapists may take that focus on treating men as a group. There are many therapists who focus on men and male issues in their treatment and therefore have experience and expertise in this domain.
