Welcome to my practice! My name is David, and I’m a Eugene counselor and therapist. I provide individual therapy sessions, marital therapy, and couples counseling. I specialize in working with and treating anxiety, panic attacks, grief/loss, depression, divorce, and infidelity. The types of psychotherapy techniques I use include Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, and Gottman Method Couples Therapy. My office is located at 1598 Pearl Street, on the corner of East 16th and Pearl.
I enjoy helping people connect with what they have lost in both life and in themselves. This process of personal recovery is amazing to witness and I am always impressed by the motivation of my patients towards change and honored to be involved, even if from the sidelines. I feel very strongly that we can let what happens in our lives make us angry, resentful and afraid, or we can embrace these events as a way to grow stronger, yet softer, and end up being more open to what scares us. Knowledge is power, including knowing ourselves.
I am currently accepting new patients and work with adults ages 18 and up. I can bill a number of insurance plans, including Aetna, BlueCross BlueShield, First Choice Health, HMA, Moda/ODS, PacificSource, and Providence. I also offer the option for affordable private pay if you are interested in not using your insurance for increased privacy and confidentiality.
I come from a multi-generational family of therapists and psychologists. Both my sister and father are also therapists. I have grown up in this environment all my life and “breathed the air” of psychology, so to speak. My practice involves short-term, focused therapy as counseling shouldn’t go on indefinitely. If you’d like to schedule a session, you can easily schedule appointments online, making things simply and straightforward.
