Working with Dr. David Essien, Psy.D.

How do you approach the beginning of your therapeutic work together?

The beginning therapy focuses on understanding the problem. During the first few sessions, I encourage the patient to fully explore the issue that brings them to therapy as well as the impact that issue has had on different areas of life functioning like their relationships, thoughts, and behaviors.

What do you hope for your patients once you’ve concluded therapy?

Patients will find that they have a better understanding of themselves, their behaviors, their thoughts and how numerous factors impacted the original problem. They will also have solutions that address that issues and a plan to maintain that progress in the future.
