About David

My work is motivated by a desire to help individuals find authenticity, meaning, and a sense of inner peace. As well, I am inspired by the possibility of helping clients discover and develop their potential through contact with their authentic selves. I accompany clients through a process of exploration and self-discovery that examines past, present, and future, and helps them understand how their life experience has contributed to their current circumstances. Through insight into these dynamics, individuals may gain understanding and compassion for themselves, as well as greater freedom from past patterns of relating to themselves and others. To the extent that clients are freed from these blind spots and compulsions, they have more capacity to connect with their deepest nature, so that their lives can unfold in a way that brings a greater sense of fulfillment.

I approach each person with an attitude of openness and curiosity, and a desire to understand their unique personality and life circumstances. I attempt to tailor my approach by taking into account where clients are in their development, and what works best for them.

I welcome persons of every race, gender, and sexual orientation, including LGBTQ, BDSM, kink, and poly.

In addition to my work with individuals, I also offer couples therapy to assist couples with relationship difficulties.
