David Jenkins, LCSW

Counselor: Adults, Couples, Teens

David’s understanding that life involves all of who we are—mind, emotions, and body—is a foundational principle in his work. His counseling experience includes work with children 9+, adolescents, adults, and families, and he particularly enjoys focusing on relationships, family, and men’s issues. He helps men channel into their deeper emotional world and explore it in a way that is non-threatening but allows for deep work. With couples, David helps each partner to channel into their emotional world and use it as a bridge to link with their partner rather than as a wall that isolates. David has completed Level One of Gottman training and is trained on “Treating Trauma and Affairs” with John and Julie Gottman. David is EMDR trained.
