David first started in the mental health field in 1976 and brings with him nearly 40 years of clinical experience. He has spent most of his career providing services to children, adolescents and their families. In the last few years he has developed a special interest in providing psychiatric services to children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Developmental Disorders and trauma based disorders.

As for dogs he says they have been his companions for almost his entire life and could not image being without one in his house.
