David DeNavarra


About Me

Hello! My name is David DeNavarra. I am a marriage and family therapist licensed in Florida with over 13 years of experience. I have a Master of Science in degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and Professional Counseling from the University of Akron. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, mood stabilization, relationship issues, spiritual/existential difficulties, parenting problems, behavioral issues, anger issues, career challenges, personality disorders, codependency, severe and persistent mental illnesses, life changes, addictions, and trauma histories. I have extensive experience working with individuals as well as families/youth.
My therapy style is warm and interactive, treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, while empowering the individual to make goals and changes consistent with his/her/their own internal values. My therapeutic approach is eclectic, borrowing from cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, systemic, rational-emotive, solution-focused, and trauma-informed therapies. I customize treatment and approach to meet your unique and specific needs.
Seeking treatment is daunting. It requires a great deal of courage to change your life and seek a happier, more meaningful life. My job is to support and empower you through a collaborative partnership. I look forward to working with you!

David is passionate at his job. You can tell the moment you had your first session with him. Good listener, and ask important questions to guide you to your goals. His approach is the right balance of warmth, empathy and logic. Thank you David :)

I just started with teen counseling and I couldn’t ask for a better therapist. David listens to me and makes plans and goals for me to achieve. I feel confident and better about making decisions.
