Welcome to my site. I am called many things…honey, daddy, son, brother, counselor or even Doc David. Like you, I fulfill many roles in my life. Some days I do them well, other days not so much. Something that I do in all my roles is be creative and problem solve.

Whether it’s coming up with a unique way to spend time with my wife, creating a vacation to remember for my family or helping a couple or family find new ways to communicate, creativity and experience are important.

I have been in practice for 20 years helping families, teens and couples find ways to do life differently. Along the way I have become licensed as a Marriage & Family therapist and earned my Ph.D. in Psychology.

What keeps me going is my wife of 25 years and my 7 kids. If you find this page useful or informative please comment, share or drop me a question! Thank you for stopping in.

If you've ever thought to yourself, "there's gotta be an easier way...am I going crazy...why won't these kids just do what they're told..." you are not alone. Thousands of parents and families over thousands of years have struggled with parenting. So know that you are not alone!

If you are a divorced parent trying to co-parent with a former partner who you may or may not get along with, parenting gets even more difficult. Divorce is not just emotionally hard on you, it's also hard on kids.

 

Parenting is possibly the one area in life that we are supposed to just do when a baby shows up. We are supposed to take what we learned in our own upbringing and just transfer that to the next generation.

Well, if you grew up in a home with absent parents...abusive siblings...no boundaries, what you see as effective parenting could be a very skewed. Add opinionated friends and in-laws and things could feel hopeless for you as a parent.

Many professions have coaches and business consultants attached to them. This is because no one is simply born an expert. People become experts over time and then share their knowledge with others. I believe parenting is no different.

As a parenting and family coach, I value your expertise on your family. You are the one who was there from the beginning. This is the thing that often creates blind spots which I can help with. 

I offer something unique. You don't come to me, I come to you. I make myself available for a 1-5 day hands on experience. I will coach you and your family on how to interact appropriately with one another. You can get back to loving your kid rather than controlling and demanding things from them. 

Whether you have a high-conflict relationship or no conflict at all let's talk more and get your family relationships back on track!
