Sometimes life can hit us hard and we find that we need a little extra help. Maybe we talk to friends and family and it helps, but we still find a need. It takes wisdom to recognize the need to seek professional help, and courage to take the leap and talk with someone. My name is David Edwards, and I am a mental health counselor licensed to practice in the state of Arizona. I have experience in working with many common issues that individuals are facing today, including anxiety, depression, and trauma-related issues. I believe in approaching therapy from the client's perspective and working together to develop a plan.

I opened my practice in 1998 and still LOVE what I do. My model follows a few basic principles: Provide a professional, understanding and calming environment; Offer a variety of tools and skills; Create a plan that recognizes thoughts, emotions and behavior; Evaluate the process and adjust as necessary. Customer Satisfaction is a priority, so many of our referrals come from other clients. I provide clinical supervision for three licensed associates at A Family Works. The four of us work together, along with a professional and friendly front office, to provide a large number of services to the East Valley.
