Hello, this is David – Welcome! Below is some information about me, and what you can expect in our work together:
I strongly believe in the power of therapy to heal, foster growth, and help you live a happier, more fulfilling life. I understand how difficulties and challenges can affect your psyche and your spirit ; we can work together to help clarify what is causing you pain, dissatisfaction or unhappiness, and give you tools that will help you work through your specific challenges. My last 25 years have been dedicated to helping people live happier lives. If you want to talk with someone who is non-judgmental, and who will provide gentle insight and honest feedback, I can help you.
Areas of Specialization:
If you struggle with depression, anxiety, sexuality issues, loss, addictive behaviors, chronic illness/pain, if you want to be kinder and more compassionate with yourself, if you are experiencing spiritual crisis/ upheaval, having conflicts in your relationship, or If you need help setting and achieving goals, I can help you.
My Treatment Philosophy:
My treatment approach is geared toward helping you gain insight and awareness about how you are living your life in the present moment – in the ‘here and now’. Many people experience pain, discomfort, or dissatisfaction related to one of two activities: 1) ‘re-living the past’ or 2) “worrying about the future’. These can both take many forms. Most commonly, they tend to take the forms of ‘second-guessing’ yourself - mentally re-playing and re-living past experiences and events, or worrying about future events and circumstances that have not yet occurred. Both of these can happen outside of your awareness, and both can prevent you from living fully in the present. In our work together we will explore how you can shift behaviors and patterns that are counter-productive for you, and take positive actions that will enhance your own happiness.
Connecting with your Internal Wisdom:
My strong belief is that each of us has an internal wisdom within us. Over time, our connection with that internal wisdom can become blocked due to various life experiences and events, particularly if they are traumatic in any way. Together we will work to help you identify those blockages and help strengthen your ‘inner connection.’ As you do this, you will be better able to live your life in a way that feels more in line with who you are.
I approach my work with clients from a very holistic perspective, taking into account mind, body and spirit. Each one of us has our own unique life story, experiences and internal reactions, and they have all contributed to how you are experiencing your life in this moment.
Our work together will be based on your needs, and will be geared toward achieving whatever goals you wish to achieve. As we embark together on your journey to healing and growth, I will help guide you in becoming more aware of your feelings, and knowing more about your own unique internal process. Armed with this knowledge and awareness, you will be better equipped to live your life in a way that more fully meets your needs
