A Message From David

Many of us desire to live a life where we feel connected to our work, to our families, and to ourselves.

It can be excruciating to turn and face the issues that have fragmented your relationship with yourself and others.  Your journey to wholeness can start here.

I help individuals and couples who feel like they are sinking take a brave step toward wholeness in a space designed to remind you that you do not have to be alone in your pain.

Counseling offers a safe space for you to gain the freedom to kindly look at the links that make up your bindings – pain, anxiety, hopelessness, and others – and take steps toward addressing these chains and their origins.

I will walk with you through the pain, anger, and shame from life’s challenges and help you gain the insight and skills to mindfully participate in a life filled with hope so you will be prepared to weather the storms tomorrow will bring.

Don’t wait for life to stop sinking. Take a brave step towards healing and call me for a free phone consultation.

4 Characteristics of Trauma You Need to Know

I hear clients talk about pieces of their lives that took an unwanted turn. These pieces can stem from: childhood, marriages, vehicle wrecks, or places of war. The collective word we used to describe these pieces is trauma. But what exactly is trauma? 

Ask Yourself These Questions to Understand Depression

In this trying season, it can be impossible to roll out of bed and face another day of the “grind.” When life feels like damage control as opposed to taking action, it can be easy to become discouraged or depressed.

How To Face Your Fears & Change. 

The monsters we are afraid to face need to come into the light. Here are a few quick tips on how to do just that. 


From the beginning David was respectful of our situation and never made us feel like he placed judgement on our situation. He was professional every step of the way and created a very relaxed environment where my wife and I could communicate in a way we had not before.  ~  E.W.
