David Chacon Valenzuela

I believe in using our Diversity as an instrument to support people in their growth, rather than as a weapon to hurt ourselves and others. Therefore, I am committed to providing a respectful, safe, and welcome space regardless of age, sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity, socioeconomic condition, disability, or religion. Counselling should be a service that is available to anyone that needs it. Challenging experiences that happened in your life in the past will continue influence your actions today. Your behaviours, beliefs, relationships, and choices might seem difficult to understand today if you feel that you are stuck in the past and fearful of your future. I will honor your dignity, integrity and values and support you as you identify and understand your needs with thoughtful attention for self-care.

My work approach is eclectic and pragmatic. Eclectic because I bring different theoretical approaches to my practice, such as Psychoanalysis, Adlerian Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Person Centered Therapy and Traditional Indigenous Cultural practices. And pragmatic because I support you as you find the way to take back the control in your life, decide on the appropriate actions and put them into practice.
