Hello and welcome!
My name is David Gala, I’m a Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern, and let me be among the first to applaud you as you take this courageous step towards your personal development and self-growth. Life is a complex and unpredictable journey, marked by a myriad of challenges that test our resilience and strength. From personal struggles to external obstacles, the difficulties of life often serve as formidable adversaries. However, it is my belief that these challenges, while daunting, also provide us with opportunities for growth, resilience, and self-discovery. Embracing the difficulties of life with courage and perseverance can lead to profound personal development and a deeper appreciation for the triumphs that emerge from navigating the twists and turns of our unique paths.
As a mental health therapist, I am passionate about promoting mental health and resilience, and I firmly believe in the transformative power of therapy. My goal is to assist individuals, couples, and families in navigating life’s challenges, fostering self-discovery, cultivating connections, and empowering them to make meaningful changes that lead to a more fulfilling and balanced life. My therapeutic style is empathetic, collaborative, and person-centered. I believe in creating a safe and non-judgmental space where clients can explore their thoughts and emotions.
I earned my Master of Science degree in Counseling from Barry University, specializing in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Throughout my professional journey, I have developed evidence-based therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Person-Centered Therapy, all of which allow me to tailor my methods to meet the unique needs of each client.
Outside my professional life, I enjoy going to our sandy beaches, exercising, watching movies, and spending quality time with my friends and family. These experiences enrich my understanding of the human experience and inform my practice as a therapist.
Let’s embark on this journey of self-discovery and growth together. I look forward to the opportunity to support you on your path to a fulfilling and balanced life.
