More about me

Licensing: PhD, LPC, NCC
Years in Practice: 6
State: VA

All my work, which includes expertise in several therapeutic modalities, is strengths-based and values-grounded. We will move on a journey together through an exploration of what makes you unique, to include your core values, and will build all our progress on the strengths you inherently possess as an individual. Many therapists allow and encourage clients to continue to focus on their problems. While it is critical to address these issues--and validate them--at the beginning of our work together, my focus will be on helping people see what's going right in life, and to do more of what's already working in order to address what isn't.

My professional background is long and varied. Previously, I was an Infantry Officer in the U.S. Army, and later a State Trooper, before ultimately discerning a call to become a psychotherapist and counselor educator. In addition to providing therapy to individuals, couples, and families, I am an active teacher and supervisor at the graduate level of counselor education, and maintain a line of research inquiry related to the experiences of combat veterans before, during, and after wartime service.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

I was very lucky to be matched by Dr. David. He is very compassionate and makes you feel really heard. I made a lot of progress talking to him and he was there for me during a very rough patch. I am very grateful and highly recommend him.

Very attentive and collaborative. I did not think I would find someone that compassionate.

Dr. G. is very attentive of what issues I want to work on and offers great ways to deal with them. He also responds quickly to messages.

I’ve been putting off a review because I haven’t been sure if therapy has been helping me. It took me some time to figure out what I want to gain from it, or exactly which portion I’d like to seek help in, and David has been very, very patient throughout this process. Despite my ongoing confusion and reluctancy when it comes to my problems, David’s way of problem-solving step-by-step and compassionate approach to our discussions have proven to be very helpful in helping me put words to my feelings and thoughts, and also gain new insights into many of the decisions that I am making in life. I am immensely grateful towards him, and looking at what we have accomplished thus far, and am certainly hopeful that I can benefit from future sessions with him.

He is very helpful and amazing. He always listens. I appreciate that I hear from him almost daily. He’s helped immensely.

I cannot recommend David enough. I never tried counseling before because I thought it wasn’t for me. I now realize that seeking help and finding the right counsellor makes all the difference. I sought for online therapy when I felt I was no longer able to cope and everything in my life was going wrong. I couldn’t understand why. David was very incisive in identifying the issues. My sessions with him have not only helped me gain an understanding of my habits and patterns but also given me the tools to break the bad habits and understand what is important. As a result, I feel in control, grounded and confident in all parts of my life and most importantly, I feel capable of moving forward in my life. Thank you, David. I am so very grateful to you.
