Hello! When working with clients, my first priority is to ensure that they feel safe and comfortable while exploring the wide range of experiences and challenges that accompany life. My hope is to be a companion who provides support, validation, and perspective while remaining led by you! I work with all kinds of presenting issues and truly enjoy building each individual's story and insight about themselves. I believe that our pasts impact how we show up in the world and that learning about ourselves in this way leads to relief and positive change.

My approach to therapy is rooted in compassion and respect. I believe that you are the best expert on yourself, and that my role as a therapist is to create a safe and open space to deepen your awareness of yourself and to explore if, when, and how it might be the right time to make changes in your life.

I am a trauma-informed bodyworker and Somatic Experiencing Practitioner offering a body-centered approach for the healing of trauma and chronic pain. Traditional therapy approaches often have difficulty addressing the bodily effects of trauma, anxiety and depression. Habits and patterns that get "stuck" in the body can keep these types of issues from resolving, even after many years of successful therapy. As an adjunct to traditional therapy, my body-centered approach to Somatic Experiencing provides a unique opportunity to support the physical integration of mental and emotional change that help people recovering from trauma to truly FEEL better.

Choosing a therapist that is a good fit for your specific needs, values, and methods for change can be challenging. There needs to be a comfort level and fit that will foster a positive and effective working relationship. The therapist's education, experience, competency, and certification, are essential to promoting positive outcomes. I have been working with women, men, couples, and families for 20+ years and have learned so much from clients regarding their concerns, hopes, dreams, and methods of change. My approach is Collaborative, Strengths-Based, and Solution-Focused.

We are all deserving of joy, optimism and healthy relationships. Being human is a vulnerable experience and there are things we’re not taught or prepared for. We all seek acceptance and to be loved and cared for, yet many of us may struggle to find that as a result of past relationships and experiences.

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.

My ideal client is someone that has an idea of their goals and what they would like to pursue in therapy, but needs the extra insight and encouragement to clarify those goals or to take the first steps in accomplishing them. They may be struggling with mood issues, have trouble controlling their thoughts, or be dealing with difficult or contentious relationships. They are in need of someone to listen to them, to provide empathy and validation, and then to help guide them along the path they have chosen to make the changes they wish to see in their life.

How are you showing up in your life? Perhaps you are exhausted by efforts to avoid emotional pain, with the result being you avoid being present in your life. Or perhaps you stay mired in forms of emotional pain due to its familiarity or its seeming inescapability. I find great meaning in helping clients move toward their vision of a more fulfilling life. I enjoy working with adults who are experiencing anxiety, depression, challenges with substance use, and/or difficulties with adjusting to new life circumstances – who want to better connect with themselves, their friends and loved ones, and the natural world.

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.
