About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, with 25 years of experience in the counseling field. I am 52, years old and went back to get my masters degree at 39 years of age. I have lots of life experiences, grew up in a middle class family with parents and siblings. I played sports when I was younger, and excelled in many of them. I became interested in Psychology in under graduate work. I have three kids, that include identical twin daughters that are now 15 years old, and a 19 year old son. I worked with teens starting in 1995, at first working with them in Mental Health/Alcohol and drug related fields. I worked with adolescents on all milieus, including Inpatient, Outpatient counseling and in schools. In Graduate school I completed my practicum in child therapy and was able to learn a lot. I enjoy working with adolescents and have done so for a number of years and adolescents tend to enjoy working with me as well.

David has been absolutely wonderful with my teenage son! After just one visit, his smile is back and after each week his mood is lighter. These are tough times and I'm so glad he has David to talk to every week. It's made a huge difference and I am so thankful for teen counseling!

So far it’s been great I’m learning a lot! His life experiences and his knowledge help see issues that you may have or other people may have which helps understand what’s going on and why things happen I’m extremely happy with the therapy I’m getting from David and I’m likely to continue on with David
