Eclectic

David takes an eclectic approach to therapy, drawing upon various aspects of cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic methods to create a custom-made approach for each client. David works with each client to create a treatment plan that encompasses different techniques to best address the client's particular problems and to appeal to their sensibility. Mindfulness is utilized in each session to focus the client inwardly.

Humanistic

David utilizes a humanistic approach that takes a positive view of human nature and emphasizes the uniqueness of each individual. Therapy in this tradition is interested in exploring the nature of creativity, love, and self-actualization, helping clients to realize their potential through change and self-directed growth. Humanistic therapy is also an umbrella term for gestalt, client-centered therapy.
