David McKnight's Counseling Services
David McKnight, featured in Psychology Today is a unique therapist that brings a wealth of experience and insight to his approach to therapy.
He has over 18 years of experience helping people work through issues such as relationship, marital and/or family issues, addiction (drugs, alcohol, impulsive spending, sex/love addiction and other impulse control issues), depression, anxiety, obsessions/compulsions, anger, chronic pain and/or illness, grief/loss issues and many others.
He also has been personally active in the recovery community for over 30 years which gives him tremendous depth, personal insight and wisdom that he can pass on to his clients. 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.
