As a certified life coach and mindfulness instructor, I work with teens and young adults (ages 14-24), helping them gain clarity about who they are, how they learn and what they want. The work I do is meant for clients who are struggling with low self-esteem, lack motivation or are having difficulties at school. Coaching is extremely effective in supporting young clients to take significant steps toward the person they want to be and the life they want to live. Each coaching session is tailored to the individual and can be conducted in person, over the phone or via Skype.

From struggling to THRIVING. Become more fully "yourself." Enjoy relationship satisfaction. Strengthen connection to something bigger that is meaningful. Get relief from depression and anxiety (really!). Improve effectiveness at work. Feel more at home in your body, content. Mindful and present. LAUGH. Choosing a therapist that is both really good AND a great fit is important. There is a difference here you will experience from the get go. The office is in a 1930's Cape Cod style house...inviting & comfortable. With warmth and character. David is unusually relational and "real." Sessions are 60, 75 or 90 minutes rather than 50.

Challenges offer us an opportunity to develop new skills, enrich our relationships and become a stronger, more confident version of our authentic selves. At times, we need additional support and encouragement to move beyond a particular season in our growth. My approach to working with individuals and families is to identify and call upon innate strengths to find solutions that will meet their needs. My work with clients is collaborative, respectful and creative.

We all get stuck sometimes; and we suffer. Life often feels messy and chaotic, and in the midst of "the daily grind" we experience ourselves as unbalanced, fragmented, and "all over the place." Life is perpetually full of transition and change; and our habituated ways of being in the world are often at odds with the ebb and flow of life's events, and we experience stress, conflict and pain. Despite our resources, strategies and efforts to cope with challenges, we often get stuck; and end up feeling dissatisfied with ourselves, disenchanted with others, and disconnected from life, vitality, joy.
