understands that not all life-paths are clearly marked, or mapped out ahead of time. Sometimes new opportunities come unexpectedly, or trauma closes a previously-open door. A career might not work out, and a new path is needed. There might not be any movie or book you can point to that describes what you want out of your life. Or perhaps you’ve been told that the things you want are sick, or twisted, or wrong.  There’s nonjudgemental help available, and Dave strives to provide it.
 
When working with clients, Dave always tries to be a compassionate listener. He acknowledges that his training has provided him with a library of skills and tools to try to apply to your problems, while also recognizing that you are the best expert on your own life, its problems, and what solutions might work for you. He focuses his practice on clients with queer, kinky, nonmonogamous, or furry identities.

After 20 years in corporate life, has his MSW from Loyola University Chicago.
