I incorporate a blend of therapeutic modalities which include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy; Trauma Informed Approach; Psychotherapy; Relational Psychotherapy; Mindfulness/Somatic Psychology; Person Centered; and Motivational Interviewing.
I am a compassionate person that truly believes that each individual in this world deserves authentic happiness and inner peace. We all have our own journey of growth, and I feel like I have a unique opportunity to create a safe space to support others in healing from experiences that have challenged their sense of self. Each individual is in charge of his/her own growth, and I view therapy as a partnership between myself and my clients throughout each stage of change. Therapy is a process that enables a person to discover self-awareness, to harness self-expression, and explore the capacity to have and hold stronger feelings.

As well as, motivational interviewing: looking at ways that you can make positive behavioral changes that creates the life you want.
Counseling is a journey and our first step is to define where you want to go. I see myself walking besides you in this journey and guiding you towards your chosen destination. Counseling consists of defining problems, understanding relevant history, and designing interventions to alter behaviors, feelings, attitudes, and thought patterns. My intention is to listen, validate, and empower your abilities.

While strongly influenced by attachment theory and existential thinking, I'm fairly pragmatic in sessions -- utilizing a mix of motivational interviewing, narrative therapy, mindfulness, and cognitive-behavioral approaches that help you or your teen get unstuck.
You're the parent of a teen who's depressed, impacted by trauma or using substances. Or, perhaps you're an emerging adult or teen seeking services for yourself because you're stuck and you know something has to change. My name's David Flack. For 20 years I've helped teens and emerging adults get unstuck from trauma, substance-related problems, depression, and other mental health challenges. I can help you, too. Together, we'll make choices about what to change, identify behaviors to leave behind, and develop the insight and skills needed for the journey ahead.

I use various modalities including CBT, motivational interviewing, active listening, mindfulness techniques, and solution focused methods.
We all experience anxiety, fear and sometimes depression or suffering - especially when faced with life transitions. Teens transitioning to adulthood, family transitions (marriage, divorce, new parents), career changes, and aging are experiences we all share. These transitions also have the potential to bring joy, reflection and peace. However, we all need help sometimes to find the joy in times of change. I enjoy helping adolescents and young adults find their path in this world, and believe this is a particularly critical transition. A successful transition to adulthood creates a foundation for continued success in life.

Do you struggle with an inner voice that tells you that you are failing or not enough? Is it difficult to identify what you want? Do you consistently prioritize others over yourself? We live in a world that bombards us with messages about who has value and who does not. We are told “just try harder” and things will change. My clients come to therapy because despite a commitment to this hustle for worth, they remain dissatisfied. They feel stuck and resonate with the idea of putting their life on hold until they lose the weight, get the promotion, etc. Many say they are ready for something different but aren't sure where to start.

Motivational Interviewing Therapists
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a method of therapy that works to engage the motivation of clients to change their behavior. Clients are encouraged to explore and confront their ambivalence. Therapists attempt to influence their clients to consider making changes, rather than non-directively explore themselves. Renton Motivational Interviewing is frequently used in cases of problem drinking or mild addictions. Check these therapists for Motivational Interviewing in Renton.
