Is your relationship in trouble?
In pursuit of being the best couples therapist, I have trained directly with John and Julie Gottman, Sue Johnson (EFT-Emotiuon Focused Therapy) and Dan Wile (Collaborative Couples Therapy). Using research and the science of relationships David can predict whether a couple would divorce with an average of over 90% accuracy
David Mark, MS, LCSW, is committed to providing compassionate support to these and many more life issues.

Awards I have received numerous educational awards in the past four years for work that I have done in Positive Psychology.

After an in depth assessment, I will provide with couple with in depth feedback and a clear and concise treatment plan that will guide our work together.
