Those who have followed my career over the decades know that I enjoy connecting people with the growing number of options for good health of mind and body as well as social health. When I do psychotherapy and counseling for adults and children with caregiver accompaniment I draw upon Positive Psychology [Seligman | Zur] and the Coherence Therapy insights of the Coherence Psychology Institute. I offer my insights and my connections to help you solve problems and clean out obstacles to self-healing.

Reminder Post Election 2016: Our Nation Is Still At War
Below is the three-minute introduction to the leadership demands of wartime. It is a superb film excerpt showing men and boys motivated to do the wartime work...in another century where women could not officially be warfighters. [I watched the film in theater 5 times and several more on DVD in my home office.] The title of the film is, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. It stars Russell Crowe and Ralph Bellamy.
Wisdom Day series -- Seeking ways that we health professionals can collaborate to deliver effective and affordable applications of science and time-tested traditional approaches.
I'm trained in primary care and treating disease with natural therapies, as well as several eclectic methods for counseling and self-empowerment. No matter what disease label you have been given, as a solution-focused naturopathic physician, counselor and coach -- keeping in touch with what other natural medicine practitioners are doing -- my goal is to help you free your resources for healing and uncover your innate potential. I invite you to learn about the brain-healthy discoveries of psychiatrist Daniel Amen, M.D. by clicking on this link or on the menu to the right. You'll also benefit from reading about New Brain Science discoveries and how to build a healthy brain and understand your mind, especially after trauma.
Those who've followed my career know that I highly recommend that the general public as well as health care professionals listen to the psychology podcast interviews of educator and psychologist, David Van Nuys, Ph.D. He founded Shrink Rap Radio which has weekly interviews and a newsletter to announce upcoming events. After listening to his programs I began my Blog and founded DCNN.pro. Here are two podcasts about mental health and naturopathic medicine contributions: Orthomolecular Medicine and Mental Health with Jonathan Prousky, ND, and Functional Medicine with Naturopath and Psychoanalytic Therapist Dr. Stephen Ducat.
Below is an interview of Doctor Dave by Australian psychologist Amy Felman.
Working together we can better understand and resolve blockages & challenges in your life. Using complementary approaches and techniques, including laboratory testing and diagnostic imaging when that may be helpful, we unearth long-standing factors that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation, to sort out your options for a health care concern or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals. If it fits you I'm available to consult about your worries about your child, or about a hospice situation for a dignified life transition.
I also provide focused natural and functional medicine services for clients of psychotherapists, psychologists, clergy and others. I am proud to be a certified Amen-Affiliated Education Center clinician; click the link in the Menu to learn more.
