David Kessler, LPC

David Kessler holds a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology from Northwestern University at the Family Institute. He has provided clinical services to families, adolescents, young adults and adults in hospital and community mental health settings. David has enjoyed working with a diverse client population in both individual and group contexts. Throughout the therapeutic process, David looks to find ways to help empower his clients to lead personally fulfilling lives. To meet this end, David encourages clients to explore both the past and present in hopes that each client will uncover insight into their thoughts, actions and emotions that will allow them to create a context for change. David's specific focus is centered on trauma, treatment of trauma and learning disabilities.

While his passion for therapy is what drives him, David is also dedicated to clinical research. Currently, he is working on outcome research for the Center for Contextual Change as well as a descriptive analysis of ADHD and PTSD treatment implications.
