Hi, I’m David. I help people get unstuck from the struggles in their lives.
Do you know what almost all of my new clients say to me when we first meet?
“I need someone who challenges me.”
They’re right. Just showing up and talking in therapy each week won’t make a bit of difference. What actually helps is if we are also guided, challenged, and supported in our struggles. Turning our dreams of getting better into something tangible and achievable.
This process of personal recovery is amazing to witness and I am always impressed by the motivation of my patients towards change. I come from a multi-generational family of therapists and psychologists. I have grown up in this environment all my life and “breathed the air” of psychology, so to speak. This experience has taught me that the hardest part of change for anyone is in getting to know yourself and to face the areas where we feel stuck at in life. If I can help during this process, I would be glad to assist you.
My goal is to help people overcome their struggles and setbacks by taking practical steps that build upon each other to provide lasting and meaningful change. By doing this, I hope to help you connect with what you may have have lost in life and in yourself.
“Before therapy, I felt a lack of control of my thoughts, feelings, emotions, and direction in life. I felt like my day-to-day was unpredictable. Now, I feel like I have strategies to deal with ups and downs and manage my way through any potential relapses.” – Client Review
Working with David is NOT for you if…
- You’re looking for a “Magic Bullet” to change your life without committing to any real work on your end
- You’re not willing to invest at least 10 minutes a day on reinventing yourself using the skills and tactics learned in therapy
- You’re struggling with serious issues of safety, self-harm, or suicide
- You are overly self-medicating your emotional pain with alcohol, marijuana, or drugs, and are unwilling to change
You’re Ready for Therapy if…
- You’re open to being challenged to move outside of your comfort zone in order to achieve higher levels of tangible success
- You are willing to commit to making 100% of the change in yourself and not wait for others in your life to change first
- You feel like you’ve gotten as far with your struggles as you can, and are tired of just “maintaining” and keeping your head above water
- You’re ready to focus on changing your future rather than rehashing the trauma of the past
- You understand that progress will be challenging and that there will be ups and downs, but dramatic shifts in your life CAN happen by adjusting your life approach using the tactics you’ll learn

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the first session like?
Our first meeting is as much about you interviewing me as it is about me finding out more about you. This must be a “good fit” for both of us in order for your therapy to be effective, and to tailor treatment to your specific issues (there is no one size fits all).
Do you take insurance?
I am in-network and a preferred provider for a select number of insurance plans. I can also bill as an out-of-network provider for most other insurances. Additionally, private pay is available for those interested in increased privacy and confidentiality.
Do you offer video therapy?
Due to the Coronavirus emergency, all appointments are being provided by video for the foreseeable future.
How fast will I get better?
The harsh reality is that just “showing up” to therapy won’t really change anything in the long run. A better question to ask yourself is how much you’re willing to work on the things we talk about in-between sessions, which usually results in a 40-60% improvement.
Prefer just to read and learn at your own pace? No problem! Get copies of new articles (like this) as soon as I write them. The bottom line is that if you’ve been wanting some direction in your life, I’d like to help.
