More about me

Hello, I’m David Shaw. Thank you for being curious about me..  I would like to say a little about myself in order to help you imagine if we might be a good fit to work well together.

First the basics. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist in California.  I was first licensed in 1978. I have had many years of experience helping people address a variety of concerns.

It is my experience that therapy works best when the client feels the therapist is really interested in them and how they see the world. I believe we all have a deep need to have someone really understand our experience. I feel I do this well.

During our lives we evolve. Our needs change. We seek love, respect and security.  We want to be valued for who we are.  At times we find that things are not working out as we had hoped.

In sessions I encourage clients to talk as openly as they are able. 

If what I have said is of interest please reach out to me so can explore ways I can be of help to you.

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.
