MEN and COUPLES counseling are what David specializes in.  When you come to see David, you can be assured that with his training and life experience that he is ready to help you achieve the goals you want. David has extensive training in helping couples find a way forward when there has been infidelity by using a Three-Day Intensive to help couples get 4-6 months of therapy in 3 days. This is not for everyone because of how intense the work is, but for some couples it is a marriage saver.

MEN generally just do not feel comfortable talking about the BIG stuff like hurts, disappointments, pornography use, sexually acting out, divorce, grief, and failed relationships.  David provides a supportive and affirmative counseling setting that can help men sort things out and come up with results that are different from the ones they are currently getting.


Some of the issues David works on with men are:


  • Infidelity 
  • Sexually acting out
  • Pornography
  • Transitional issues such as job loss or job change
  • Grief
  • Difficulties with intimacy
  • Poor communication skills
  • Controlling and rigid behavior


COUPLES staying together just because society says they should, or because of the kids, are not having the kind of relationship they can have. 

You don’t have to settle for just existing together!


David has experience with a diverse range of couples from various racial, ethnic, and spiritual backgrounds, as well as length of marriage or relationship.  Couples can be married or dating. 


David assists couples with issues such as:


  • Infidelity
  • Trust
  • Relationship  tune-ups
  • Communication where you actually hear and understand each other


What sets David apart from many counselors?

David’s breadth of experience and training sets him apart from many counselors.  He is certified to work with individuals that have sex or porn addiction, and infidelity. Some couples are good candidates for a THREE-DAY INTENSIVE that can help get the relationship on a track to healing, and eventually trust.

Prior to entering the profession of counseling, he was a pharmacist, and owned and managed his own pharmacy.  Later he went to work for a pharmaceutical company where he held various positions in sales, sales training, marketing, new product planning, and national sales director.  David experienced severe trauma early in his life, and has worked to deal with it and go on to have a very happy and productive life, partly because of this experience.


David has a Masters of Arts degree in Professional Counseling, and additional degrees in pharmacy and general studies. He is a CSAT (Certified Sex Addiction Therapist) and CHFP (Certified Hope and Freedom Practitioner). Being a CSAT and CHFP gives him a unique skill set to help couples that are struggling through the pain of infidelity or sex/porn addiction.


David has been married over 30 years (to the same person!) and has two grown children.  He has experienced the roller-coaster-of-life and has found counseling to be helpful in his own life with individual and couples counseling.
