Outwardly you look like you have it all together; but on the inside, you are riddled with self-doubt, fear or overwhelming sadness. This companion of stress, anxiety and depression has been affecting many parts of your life. You wonder, "Is there a light at the end of the tunnel?" Nothing you have done to calm your mind is working and you’re barely holding it together. You can’t continue the way you are now. You want to find a way out of the darkness that steals your joy and interferes with your ability to be the best version of yourself.

As a Certified Hakomi Therapist my offering is a Somatic Experiential Psychotherapy modality that is gentle, non-judgmental, and compassionate; a form of assisted self-study where the client studies his or her responses to explorations in a mindful state of consciousness. We become aware and touch upon the very organizing experiences that have been a part of our habitual life - the patterns that no long serve us. We increase clarity, creativity, confidence and awareness and break through obstacles towards ease, connection and vitality. I am available for phone or online sessions.

***My practice is currently full.*** Whether you’re dealing with new stressors or old wounds, therapy can help you feel better. The process of sharing your story in a supportive, non-judgmental setting allows you to untangle it, find the important threads, and weave them together into a stronger, more resilient fabric. This may sound daunting, but you don’t have to do it alone. We’ll roll up our sleeves and work together to clarify what’s most important to you, deepen your understanding of what’s getting in your way, and most importantly, take the steps needed to not just go forward, but to grow forward.

I delight in working with people who are deep feeling, caring, compassionate, and bright souls. The ones who want to create something good in this world. Life may have been tough on you and let you down many times, but you refuse to give up, you keep moving forward, because deep down you know you are meant for more. I want to help you live a life that you love and feels authentic to you! If you have a vision for yourself or the world, if you have ideas, dreams, or passions, a desire for a better future, I want to hear about it! Even if those dreams seem out of reach right now, together we can work to make them a reality.

Our subconscious mind holds the memories and perceptions of every experience from childhood to adulthood. And as we continue our journey, the unresolved past continues to negatively affect our bodies, influence our thoughts, behaviors and everyday life on an unconscious level. We may not understand why we feel or react as we do to certain situations or why the same patterns show up every time and unexplained symptoms and/or circumstances keep repeating themselves. Often this prevents us from moving forward with our lives, achieve clarity and authenticity.

There are times in all our lives when we need emotional support. Reaching out for professional help takes strength and courage. Whether you are dealing with relationship issues, grief, depression, anxiety, a life transition or an emotional crisis, it can feel overwhelming to carry all of those emotions and worries alone. At times it can be difficult to even know what you want and need. I provide an open-minded, nonjudgemental, nurturing environment where you can feel safe to be yourself and express whatever emotions you are having.

Currently taking new child, adolescent, and teen clients only... It takes courage to ask for support. Coming this far is a victory in and of itself. You’re in touch with yourself enough to know that you need something to change, although you may not be certain yet of what that change should look like. Perhaps you need a shift in perspective during a difficult time. Maybe you need to learn to cope with challenging emotions. Perhaps it is your child who needs help and you need help learning how to help them. Whatever your need, you deserve an empathetic and dedicated guide to join you on your journey. You don't have to do this alone.

My practice involves working with individuals, couples, and families. My therapeutic approach is interactive in that I ask clarifying questions, give personal feedback, provide support, and challenge assumptions. I am also likely to assign homework and ask clients to better inform themselves. Length of treatment varies according to the nature of the client's difficulties, but the vast majority of my therapy is completed within 20 sessions. For more details, go to my website at pauldavidphd.com where you review my articles and clinical approach to working with different individual, couple, and family concerns.

I believe that each of us has the capacity to become knowledgeable about what feels workable in day-to-day living and to uncover what personal values we would like to strive for in our life. I am drawn to working with folks who want to discover more about themselves (both strengths and areas of growth), their identity, their relationships, their role in the world, and how to lead a fulfilling, meaningful life. I value the opportunity to think together with clients about how therapy could be most helpful for them. I am well-suited to work with people who are looking for meaningful and measurable change in their life.

I believe therapy is a voyage into the unexplored, bringing to life the parts of you that are waiting to blossom. Through supportive, safe, and inspired exploration, one can begin to give words to silences and feel meaningful and lasting connections with those around them. We all face challenges in the ebb and flow of life, but no one has to do it alone. I believe that you know yourself and your situation best, and my role is to be a fellow traveler through challenges, to support you, and help you navigate through the process of personal growth and self-compassion.

I think that everyone has access to a deep reservoir of knowledge and vitality that can be accessed even if it has been buried for a long period as a result of trauma. My aim as a therapist is to aid you in discovering this wellspring and regaining your innate strength and energy. I’m passionate about helping people who are experiencing a loss in their lives. Have you lost a loved one, a job? Did you recently find out that your child has autism? Do you have a dream you’ve been pursuing, and you feel like you’ll never be able to make it come true? I would love to work with you.

Openings: Noon Monday or Tuesday, weekly recurring. Teletherapy only. Email best communication, plz include insurance co. Intake paperwork completion b4 1st session. I work with individuals & individuals of couples & particularly appreciate working with young adults & elder adults. Emphasis is on building self-efficacy, a positive psychology approach supported by CBT - not only navigating the impact of internal and external weaknesses but also building your strengths - what else is going to bail you when times get rough! And yes, it's OK to have weaknesses. No human is without. To say, "I have weakness," is not to say, "I am weak."
