David’s training is in experiential psychotherapies such as gestalt, bioenergetics, psychomotor, and psychodynamic therapy. This training came in the early stages of his career as he realized the depth and intensity of life stories. More specifically, this highlighted his sense that what happens to us experientially remains with us. Clearly, each of us is affected by our experiences so that unfinished business is a “determinant” in our behavior. “Unfinished business” refers to any experience residing in you that can be triggered by something in the here and now. This results in depression, Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, emotional conflict, relationship problems, yearnings of the soul, or dissatisfaction with life. Psychotherapy and experiential growth work provide the sacred space for healing and transformation of one’s self, one’s past experiences. Each psychotherapy/healing journey is “tailored” to your individual needs and requirements.
As these experiential modalities jelled, his interests moved beyond traditional psychotherapeutic experiences. Later, he completed a Vision Quest with Animus Valley Institute to learn more about Native American forms of Spirituality. This was followed by the Advanced Medicine Wheel Training to become acquainted with Peruvian/Andean forms of energy work. He then enrolled in the STAR(Soul Transformation and Repatterning) Process three year training which allowed him to further refine the integration of psychotherapy and energy techniques. The ultimate experience was a two week Peru journey with Juan de Nunez del Prado, a Peruvian anthropologist.
Collectively, his therapy journeys focus on personal and progressive integration of the mind, body, spirit connection. This is a journey into wholeness. With this in mind, he fully understands that each path is different and that your goals/desires are the ultimate requirement of your work.
