Waitlist for new clients
I believe in helping individuals discover their own strengths and truths about themselves in order to address any issues they are experiencing. Everyone has a desire to be loved and accepted as well as a need to discover their own purpose in life. This discovery often promotes motivation and goal setting to assist with growing deeper within oneself and relationally with others. I love to see clients set goals and then work to achieve them. There is such a feeling of accomplishment for a person when they finally carry out what they have been working towards.

You don't understand why your faith is not working for you. You are a Christian but yet you struggle with depression, anxiety, relationship problems and just getting through life. You feel guilty and ashamed that prayer and turning things over to God hasn't worked for you. Maybe you have been deeply hurt by others and can't seem to get past it. Or maybe things from your childhood are coming back to haunt you and you can't seem to find God in all of it. It doesn't make sense. You are just existing, going through the motions.

We all have an intrinsic knowing – what we want for our life, what is working, what is not – but sometimes it is difficult to see, feel, and recognize it. That is where therapy can help. Consider me your guide. I will work alongside you as we chart a path to find your authentic life – your true self. With expanded awareness, it is possible to not only see but to also act on the things in your life that you want to, and can change. But it takes time and a safe space to share and be present with your vulnerabilities.

Men often carry burdens alone and wish they had someone they could trust for help and guidance. The pressure of “being a man” leaves many of us feeling inadequate, confused, and lonely. We wish we had fathers or mentors to show us the way, but we have no idea how to find them. David welcomes you to explore your struggles in a safe environment and find better ways of living life with the people you love. If part of your struggle is marital or relational, then feel free to come as a couple. David and his wife Guitta, also a therapist, welcome the opportunity to work with couples seeking to live in a mutually supportive relationship.

Online Therapists

Is online therapy as effective as in-person?

Numerous studies suggest that online therapy can be as effective as in-person therapy. However, further research is needed to determine if online therapy provides the same benefits across all client populations. Individuals with severe mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, or those who may benefit from in-person check-ins, like those with eating disorders, may not experience the same level of benefit from online therapy. Nonetheless, the success of online therapy, much like in-person therapy, often hinges on the quality of the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client rather than the specific modality of therapy used.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of therapy conducted online?

One of the main advantages of online therapy is its convenience for both clients and therapists. It also allows clients who require specialized therapy to access a wider range of professionals than they could with only in-person sessions. Additionally, online therapy may be a more affordable option in some cases and often offers the same insurance benefits as in-person therapy. However, online therapy may not be suitable for everyone, especially those who value face-to-face interaction with a therapist. Therapists may find it more challenging to assess clients accurately in an online setting due to reduced nonverbal cues on camera. There is also the increased risk that disruptions caused by external factors, such as technology malfunctions, can hinder the therapy session. For these reasons, many therapists offer a "hybrid" therapeutic approach, alternating between seeing clients in-person and online.

Is online therapy suitable for children and adolescents?

Just like with adults, the accessibility and convenience of online therapy can greatly benefit children and adolescents. In fact, children and adolescents may be more accustomed to navigating online platforms than older adults, making online sessions feel more natural for them. Teens might also be interested in using additional online tools, such as therapist-recommended apps, as an adjunct to online therapy sessions. Apps for developing CBT skills, practicing mindfulness exercises, or tracking thoughts and moods can be helpful for teens receiving therapy. However, it's important to note that not all therapeutic modalities are well-suited to online therapy, especially those used with younger children. For example, play therapy, which helps younger children express their emotions, often requires in-person sessions to be fully effective.

Can I receive prescriptions and medication management with online therapy?

The ability for psychiatrists to prescribe medications through online therapy varies based on the medication and the states where the medical professional and client are located. While many prescribing regulations were relaxed during the COVID-19 pandemic, some states still enforce rules, especially concerning controlled substances, which may mandate an in-person visit before prescribing. Generally, however, medical professionals can prescribe non-controlled substances through online therapy sessions just as they do during in-person sessions.
