About Me

Hello, my name is David
I invite you to look over my profile and consider whether I can be of help. At times that help requires a level of privacy for the adolescent and other times, there is a need to include a parent or caregiver. That really depends on each case. Our era has forced both parents to work with limited resources when our children require additional support. Adolescents may be upset with their respective parents for so many reasons requiring necessary attention. I have found many adolescents experiencing a real disconnect with their parents. I have also witnessed Parents who find themselves upset due to school conferences and the like. Parents may attempt and do their best and the best doesn't show any form of a positive outcome. Youth can experience frustrations that may include blended families and a sibling who hates them. Then there are so many unique situations when I meet people who just want to be heard and taken seriously. I have come to the conclusion that, outside of a small percentage of the population, "There is no such parent who is bad, and there is no such youth who is a bad youth." I very seldom come to the determination that certain evil lives in a family system. Domestic violence is a different thing. Remember that time takes time. We have to live life so often on life's terms. The difficult is completed right away and the impossible just takes a little longer. I know that families and relationships may have come to an all-time low when we meet. I believe that there are many broken service delivery systems. Those working in the systems aren't necessarily bad. Rather, the system itself is in disrepair. My values and beliefs are focused on the critical need for relationships and family.

I referred to Insoo Kim Berg as one of my inspirations. Consider looking at the following YouTube presentation: youtube.watch?v+vkklbrw_0as

I look forward in meeting with you.

David is a very patient and experienced therapist. He managed to help me organise my thoughts on serious and deep issues while giving methods to improve myself as well in the future. He would readily respond to me and take the time to reach out to me to ensure I was coping well. I would definitely recommend him to anyone considering him as a therapist.

This therapist has taken a very dark chapter in my life and is helping me glean valuable lessons that I haven't had the power to just simply think my way into. teencounseling.com's journal centric platform helps me piece together entire parts of conversations outside of the direct CBT time and it's helping me get through a very sensitive portion of my complex life.

He is very experienced and has a wide variety of skills. David is a great listener and he asks the right questions to get you thinking. Being able to deal with past trauma without reliving any of it is invaluable. It has really help me come to terms and understand things from a different perspective.

We exchange ideas and stories, and that works very well for me. Talking is preferable to medications

I was struggling for a really long time with getting through some big life events and David was an amazing listener and offered very valuable insight that has really changed my life!

Thank you David for your Kindness and Respect which when going through cold times feels like a fireplace of warmth and light. It has been good working with your expertise, skills and mind set. I didn’t feel so alone when you lent your virtual shoulder to cry on. You have stuck with me on my main goal - to learn and grow from my difficulties which I am choosing to see as fertilizer for the spring garden; even suffering has its seasons. I am glad to continue and move forward! Thanks for the help.

David is wonderful,

He is kind, caring, and extremely intuitive. I found him to be a wonderful therapist. He allows for you to speak freely without being judged, but also puts himself in your shoes so he can create a two way dialogue. David clearly loves what he does and believes in helping people.

Written by E.L. on Jul 15, 2021 after therapy with David for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, grief, and coping with life changes

David was a huge help to me in coping with my loss and grief. Before I started sessions with him I felt that I was blindly wandering in the darkness with no direction. Through working together he gave me the tools to help process my grief and helped me walk the path to recovery. David is very considerate and understanding, and I always felt very comfortable talking to him. I 100% recommend David!

5 star review for David Maurice

Written by C.A. on Jul 02, 2021 after therapy with David for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

David Maurice is fantastic, he takes the time to listen and give feedback that is true to feeling. I previously did not stick with counseling before David and he has changed my perception on that. I was genuinely surprised with how well this app placed counselors with people.
