David Hayden

Professional Counselor Intern

Sometimes in our lives we get surrounded by systems that are supposed to offer us a place of safety and growth that end up becoming the opposite of these traits. I specialize in helping individuals, groups or couples who have emerged from these systems.

My Approach

My approach is empathic, collaborative, and goal-driven. I place special emphasis on the balance between being creative, in the moment, with the use of a personalized structure that supports the overall experience, creating safety, openness and being seen. I specialize in helping individuals with codependency, couples and individuals coming from a polyamory orientation as well as individuals with spiritual or relational trauma. I also deeply value working with those who have had negative experiences in therapy, and members of the LGBTQ+ community.

My Background

I hold a Master's degree in Counseling, with training as a Professional Clinical Counselor, as well as a Marriage and Family Therapist. I am well versed in a variety of counseling frameworks, have worked in traditional and non-traditional counseling settings and especially enjoy working with clients who have had poor or negative prior experiences in therapy.
