We are a couple in our 30s who needed some help in breaking old habits and improving communication. We thought it was important to sort these things out before taking the next steps in our relationship. Over the months, David has been able to help us navigate conflicts and reconnect when we disagree. He helped us sort through back and forth of an argument, to hear what the other was really saying. We have left every session feeling heard and more committed. Thanks to David’s guidance, we also feel equipped to continue the work in between sessions. Our foundation feels stronger than ever. After some months working with David, we are happily engaged!
"I never thought I would be one to need to go to counseling but David helped me over the course of a few months when I was in a very dark place in my life and I looked forward to those sessions and having him as an outlet during that time. David was very good with helping me view myself and my life through another perspective and showing me how to improve my emotions and emotional control to empower myself instead of beating myself up." Female, 28 years old
"Handily the best therapist I've ever spoken with- perhaps the most morally upstanding one, and I'm tremendously grateful for all of the time I've gotten to spend with him." Female age 31.
If you are looking for a therapist who will support, give guidance and instruction, lead you to analyzing your own emotions as well as pointing out what they see in your life story, then you may love working with David Gordon. I was struggling with dating after the demise of my 30+ year marriage and looking for a therapist to help shed light on several issues I was having. Dr. Gordon's experience with adults in the face of change was so incredibly helpful. As a listener, he was validating and was quick to frame my experiences to reflect my needs as I started dating. Specific skills/tools were shared that helped me gain confidence. And I was challenged as I told my story so as to really grow. He helped me see things from multiple perspectives and to question some of my own paradigms. My meetings here were mostly twice a month but when a crisis occurred, David was accommodating in order to find a slot for us to meet. I would highly recommend David Gordon. - Adult female, Age 60.
David Gordon has helped me through many things in the past year. Without him I never could have gotten through it. He has made me a better, and stronger person. To anyone reading this I highly recommend Mr Gordon. - 17 year old high school senior.
I found David Gordon to be a very kind and compassionate counselor. He helped my daughter through some very rough waters in her life and we are very grateful to have worked with him.
As a 20 year old college student, I have had trouble in the past with counselors having an inability to really relate to how I've responded to the stresses and issues of trying to grow up in our global, technological world. David is understanding and personable, I always felt like he was able to understand the quirks of my personality quickly and deeply, and knew how to best get through to me. As such, he was the first counselor I have had who really made me feel truly heard. Furthermore, he was always prepared and aware of what was going on in my life and worked to help me find tangible solutions to dealing with everyday and long-term stresses.
We sought David's help when we decided to get married. Second marriage for both of us. We were struggling with expectations/relationships with ourselves and our older children. David is a great listener and helped us to become better listeners. He was easy to talk to and made it very comfortable for both of us to share what was on our minds. Our relationship is better than ever and we are very grateful to him. - Couple, age 50

I am a mental health professional, and went to see David for some help with burn out. David is a compassionate and relatable therapist. His kind listening and consult helped me overcome a difficult moment in my career. I was able to get clarity, and learn from his knowledge and experience.

David has had a profound impact on me since I began seeing him on a regular basis for over a year and a half now. He is always prepared, listens attentively and provides a mechanism for his patients to verbalize and understand how they can improve their daily interactions with friends,family and colleagues. I wholeheartedly endorse David Gordon.
I am a 64 year old female professional, now retired. I was dealing with depression and anxiety related to extreme stress from working 60-70 hours/week and feelings of failure over my decision to retire many years earlier than I had planned. I have worked with a number of counselors throughout my life, but none were as helpful to me as David Gordon. He has excellent listening skills and is able to reflect in a fashion that is concise and insightful. He was able to help me reframe my perceptions of the changes in my life in a very positive, yet realistic way, that helped me move forward. We worked together for 5-6 months, and I can honestly say 6 months after finishing therapy that I am doing very well. I could not have imagined a year ago that I would be feeling so happy, calm and hopeful about my life and career. Life is good! God is good! David’s skills were a critical component in my recovery!
I sought out David when I was struggling through some critical personal issues. He was always accommodating and helped me through with encouragement and helped me focus on my worthiness. -Female, Age 56

I’ve been seeing David for about 2 years now, and I have found him to be very experienced, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. His meetings have a very personal, easy-going feel to them, and I have found him to often remember things brought up in past sessions better than I do! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for someone who not only listens, but gives honest feedback as well. – Male, Age 42
