David supports individuals, couples, and family members in more fully connecting with themselves and each other. David is an LGBTQIA+ ally and a child of a first-generation immigrant. As such, he strives to holistically acknowledge each person’s cultural heritage, sexual orientation, gender identity, family of origin influences, life experiences, and other interconnected parts. David believes that, through self-exploration, people naturally discover new and meaningful choices. He aims to provide a safe and comfortable environment, where individuals may experiment with new ways of being, and where couples and families may experience new ways of relating. He is also a highly collaborative psychotherapist, empowering each client to co-create the working relationship and voice what they need for success. David’s therapeutic style draws primarily from Gestalt theory: a holistic, experiential, relational, and culturally sensitive approach to personal growth. He also fluidly integrates Person-Centered Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness, and other therapeutic frameworks, depending on client needs.
David’s career has consisted of psychotherapy in outpatient and intensive outpatient settings. He has provided individual and group counseling sessions to adults across both the mental health and substance abuse domains. He has collaborated with clients to work through and improve depression, anxiety, trauma, communication, boundary-setting, life-balance, transitional challenges, self-awareness, self-esteem, and a wide range of other concerns. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, David has successfully conducted individual and group counseling through in-person, virtual tele-therapy, hybrid, and other creative delivery methods. David is also continually advancing his skills through the Gestalt Institute of Pittsburgh, ongoing training and education, and his own personal exploration and work. In his free time, David enjoys tai chi, rock-climbing, and making short films.
