David Petersen - Consultant & Interventionist

David Petersen provides psychotherapy and professional guidance in various forms. Both as a clinical interventionist and consultant, David offers support from an informed, experienced perspective. David’s career experience working in various care delivery systems from healthcare to corrections, and family to the community spans thirty years. He sees much of his experience value stemming directly from difficulties survived and built upon. David often says that “his darkest times are the neon lights on his resume.”

Global Anxiety

David is currently devoting a majority of his focus to the ‘Quarantine / Pandemic’ related anxiety that pervades all individuals, families, and communities on various levels. Between life transitions, career changes, and desperations, that palpable anxiety is flooding into the offices and clinics providing mental health services at record rates. David offers remedies to patients and professionals alike to stem burnout and compassion fatigue.

Opioid Crisis

The tensions between moral, economic, and social priorities with opioids are seen by David as difficult yet discernable challenges that can be resolved. With the open and collaborative effort, David sees solutions within reach. Conflicted families parallel conflicted communities and stakeholders. From private to public healthcare, and schools to employers to courts, a conflagration of competing priorities cloud the essentials.
