David York Grimm, MDiv, MS, LMFT has been licensed and providing therapy since 1985. He has a Master of Divinity degree from the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California and a Masters degree in clinical psychology from California State University. In addition to his private practice, he is an associate faculty member for the University of Phoenix and is a volunteer for Hospice of the Comforter.
Mr Grimm’s therapeutic approach is to develop a unique relationship with his patient to help the individual achieve a new level of objectivity and caring about him or her self. By exploring personal history and self-defeating behavior patterns regarding one’s core personality and boundaries in primary relationships, he believes that each of us can implement new reactions and thinking to improve our emotional quality of life and/or soften the symptoms of chronic conditions.
Areas of experience and specialization include treatment for clinical depression, anxiety, stress and anger management, relationship problems and adults survivors of childhood abuse. He has also worked intensely with couples and family members in addiction treatment and with death and dying. Mr Grimm currently works with adolescents, adults and older adults in individual, couples and family therapy. He is accepting new patients.
Mr Grimm is in independent practice.
