Dr. David believes that the Best Method of helping clients to achieve their goals is by gaining access to the Subconscious [Unconscious] Mind.



    • It is there that the answers to lasting change reside. If working with the Conscious Mind (which is what most modern talk therapies employ) were the Best Method of Achieving Change, then more people would already be living the lives they’ve consistently desired. Right?
    • The primary reason WHY most individuals in traditional talk therapy haven’t achieved lasting change is that they’ve tried to achieve change by treating the symptoms on the surface while allowing the deeper, real dilemmas to fester, grow, flourish and thrive.

  • Instead of pursing a residency in psychiatry, Dr. David chose to study and train in disciplines that were more in line with the techniques used by the Father and Uncle of Psychiatry, Dr. Sigmund Freud (The Father of Psychiatry) and Dr. Milton Erickson (The Uncle of Psychiatry), respectively.
  • Specifically, Dr. David chose an approach to health and holistic mental health in which the first step doesn’t involve just handing a patient a pill.
