David Belles

Resident in Counseling

Life has a way of presenting experiences that can stress our emotions and mental well-being and throw us off balance. Taking those first steps towards therapy exhibits a strength from within that should be commended. I can offer you a therapeutic experience that builds on trust, humor, and genuine care.
My goal is to provide a safe and honest space for your voice to be heard and work together to create a stronger You. I am a Veteran of the Armed Forces with 20 years of experience working with a diverse population of people.  I am highly skilled in listening, and it is my passion to assist in building mindful tools and resilience to add to your daily life.

I am trained in psychodynamic theory, but it is my belief that there is a technique that fits every individual. I will provide a therapeutic relationship that will incorporate holistic and eclectic approaches. Sometimes it’s hard to see the forest for the trees and I can offer guidance.
