Hi, it's nice to meet you.
Patients can expect an empathic approach to mental health that creates an opportunity for us to determine the most comfortable and effective approach for the therapeutic relationship. This includes communication style; how to collaboratively approach any topic and area of interest; and how to preserve agency, autonomy, and emotional safety throughout the therapy process. I specialize in psychodynamic approaches to mental health which include interpreting and evaluating unconscious and subconscious resistance to change, evaluating awareness of processes that might be helpful to or hindering change and health, and reinforcing a sense of self to further autonomous change beyond therapy.
Dr. David Kline is a licensed psychologist with training and specialization in a variety of mental health and wellness concerns. Dr. Kline utilizes trauma-informed and agency approaches in therapy to help create an environment of safety and comfort to best meet clients wherever they are in their healing process. Dr. Kline is interested in discussing aspects of health that are often ignored in social conversations and relationships, such as forming healthy relationships and attachments, sex and intimacy, sociopolitical stress, prejudice and discrimination, and other powerful and socially stigmatized aspects of health and safety.
