• To walk with my clients is a a labor of love.    - David McKnight MS, LMFT


    I truly enjoy working with men, women and couples to help them move from feeling stuck to living a more rewarding, more abundant and satisfying life.


    It has been said that it isn’t what you have in your life that’s important, as much as who you have in your life.


    My clients tell me having a caring, nonjudgmental person in their life, who truly listens, makes all the difference.


    I think that is where a therapeutic relationship is extremely valuable. It allows a person to see things, experience things and learn things in a very unique and valuable way.


    Walking along with my clients, through whatever they are facing, is truly a privilege.

He has a powerful way of connecting with people and getting to the underlying causes and helps clients effectively navigate their way to a new, more valuable, meaningful and satisfying life.


    David will meet you where you are, not where anyone else thinks you need to be. He can help you find out where you want to go and then help you to map out a plan to move effectively in that direction at your own pace.


    Therapy’s primary value comes through the healing that happens in a healthy, nurturing relationship that is free of judgement and bias. Once a therapeutic bond has developed, the client has a unique opportunity to heal and grow through whatever has been blocking their life. Therapy in some ways is like exercise. Done consistently, over time, amazing things can happen. A whole new, beautiful person can emerge.
