Troy has made himself available with off schedule appointments and messaging to help accommodate my busy schedule and weekly therapy needs. Every session I walk away with a little more insight and some new suggestions on managing my mental health. I always leave therapy with a few great takeaways. Either something he said caught my attention or a useful tool/exercise is suggested . He doesn’t force the conversation down a certain path with agenda. We kind of let the talk take us where we need to go.

He’s understanding, kind, and tries to give you some sort of insight and it seems as if he’s trying to feel the emotions you’re going through.

He is very helpful and doesn’t take sides and states the facts. He asks the right questions and is straightforward about helping us figure out what we need to do.

Extremely thoughtful, insightful, and appreciate that he maximizes the time allotted. Feels like I’ve been working with him for years after just a few sessions.

David is amazing, great listener, offers very real honest feedback. Challenges you when its needed, respectful and kind. Helped me with practical ways to change my thinking and improve my day to day.

Written on Aug 29, 2022 after therapy with David for 3 weeks on issues concerning addictions

I had three sessions with David Whiteman regarding pornography addiction and found his contributions incredibly helpful. He never judged me and never took my thoughts or feelings lightly. I was fearful at first that my issue wasn't big enough to have his attention when other people seem to struggle with more urgent issues, but every time I was with him I felt like I had all his attention and care. We were able to go very deep very quick and use our limited time very well and I feel I come out of three sessions with a lot of tools and things to think on as I continue my journey. I especially appreciated how he would allow me to lead, when I had something I wanted to talk about and how he would appropriately sense when it was his turn to lead the conversation. I appreciated how he would say "may I make an observation" or preface things such as "I'm just going to throw this out there and I want to hear what you think about it". His Christian insight was very trustworthy and refreshing as he balanced it well with clinical insights to help me develop as a whole person. I would recommend him for Christians and non-Christians as he asks exactly what role you prefer to have spirituality take in the therapy.
Thank you so much, Dr. Whiteman, for your help.

Troy does a great job helping me think through and process why I react or think about things. He then provides exercise and different thought processes for me to help me.

David is very friendly and very down to earth. He is kind and sensitive enough to allow a client to feel comfortable, yet still able to challenge a client’s perspective in a gentle manner which is effective. He has a lighthearted and easygoing energy.

Work with me!
