Depression, Anxiety, Addiction Disorders and Parenting issues are areas that David has a lot of experience. He is trained in EMDR and enthusiastic about incorporating these powerful healing techniques into his practice. He has personally experienced the power of EMDR and knows how helpful it can be for his clients. In this time of "new normal" many of us are overwhelmed, EMDR can be used to help address the issues you are facing. David knows that we all have problems and it's okay to talk about your problems, most importantly it's okay to solve your problems. Trauma is real, relationships are hard, life is demanding.
