    About David:

    My clinical work focuses on couple relationships. I view the purpose of relationships as an opportunity for each partner to develop as a loving individual in the context of connecting deeply with his or her partner. I maintain a couple/marriage therapy practice of my own where I see couples typically bi-weekly for two-hour sessions, and also provide one-therapist-only Couple Intensives at our office in Ottawa, Ontario. I also work with my wife Louise Dorfman as a co-therapist offering 3-day Couple Counselling Intensives.

    (Please Note: With the onset of COVID-19, we are seeing our clients exclusively online, using a securely-encrypted video-conferencing system. Sessions are usually 1 hour in length, but may take place over a number of consecutive days to replace our intensive counselling retreat sessions.)

    For several years now, I have been integrating into my practice the couple therapy approach of Dr. Stan Tatkin, PsyD, MFT, founder and developer of the Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy ® (PACT). PACT integrates mind and body functioning and gives couples the tools to create a safe and secure long-lasting relationships. Currently, I am a Level 11 PACT Therapist.
