David Kline


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.

I practice from several approaches, but something that makes me different is my training and ability to practice Anti-Racist Trauma-Informed Care when appropriate and indicated for consenting clients. Unequal access to resources and social prejudice and discrimination creates a difference of opportunity that shapes people and families ability to create sustainable predictability, which often leads to intergenerational trauma and stress. This area of focus is often disregarded or uncomfortable to discuss, with therapy being the little exception to that rule; however, I find these histories and experiences are rich with potential for healing and understanding as they exist and frequently impact our functioning.
