Dovid is also a trained Craniosacral Therapist. Therapeutically informed trauma touch is a powerful and gentle tool to help clients re-connect to their emotions, calm hyper-vigilance, and bring a profound new peace to their mind and body.
Early life traumas also affect one’s ability to connect to others and build satisfying relationships. Through in-depth training in Attachment Dynamics, Dovid helps clients work through this dimension and helps deepen their ability for connection, trust, intimacy and satisfying sexuality.

It is for this reason that Dovid brings true compassion and care to each session to help clients on their courageous journey of healing. Dovid is committed to bring the most advanced techniques from classical psychotherapy and mind-body modalities to help each client have the best results from their therapy journey.
