Psychotherapist & Educator
And though David is Christian who desires to integrate his faith with his counseling and teaching, he also wants people with different beliefs to know that they will be respected with the questions and values that they bring.
On the more personal side, David enjoys the mountains, old movies, good books, conversations about anything and sometimes just being lazy with his wife, family, and friends. David is also a novelist and songwriter who loves to see how art and story reflect how God has designed all of our lives and is guiding our futures.
