My name is David Burrows. I have experience working in both inpatient and outpatient mental health settings at psychiatric hospitals and have utilized aspects of a number of different therapeutic approaches, including Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), along with others. I look forward to meeting you and to begin working together!
MORE ABOUT DAVID
As a therapist, I strive to create a safe and non-judgmental space for my clients to explore their deepest thoughts and feelings, especially for those who have achieved success in their careers or personal lives but still feel like something is missing. I understand that my clients may carry around wounds, regrets, or traumas that continue to impact their lives, and I'm here to help guide them toward healing and self-discovery. My approach involves active listening, asking the right questions, and gently tapping on their shoulders to point out possibilities they may have otherwise missed. Together, we can work towards unlocking their full potential and finding a deeper sense of purpose and fulfillment in their lives.

Strengths Based Perspective
“Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary. The people we trust with that important talk can help us
know that we are not alone.”
