David Gatta, PsyD Adults and Couples Psychotherapy

Professional Statement

You are always becoming the person that you are.

My approach to depth psychotherapy starts from this premise. Who a person is and how they come to understand themselves is an on-going life-long process. There are times in life when that process is disrupted and as a consequence, we suffer to locate ourselves and find our way forward. That suffering is best alleviated through collaborate understanding and insight building. In this way, my approach is a holistic one—as I see each individual as a sum of their total life experiences rather than a collection of symptoms. My aim is to help my patients better understand their individual life context through learning what a particular symptom is trying to express.

As a licensed clinical psychologist I have extensive experience treating problems associated with life transitions, grief/loss, identity sexuality, trauma, addiction, depression, and anxiety. My practice is informed by contemporary psychodynamic theory. From this perspective, I listen very closely past the surface of suffering so that together we can address the underlying issues and create the conditions for lasting change.
