David HeliotisMA, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor #12999
I’m a counselor who works with individual adults and teens in person at Anam Cara in Berkeley and online in California. I’ve studied mindfulness-based and somatic (body-oriented) approaches to therapy. I support my clients in attaining greater self-awareness and self-understanding through mindful attention to their bodies, emotions, and thoughts. In discovering the truth of their circumstances, people become more capable of making the changes they want for themselves.

How I Work
I believe a safe and trusting connection between therapist and client is the foundation for positive change. I strive to understand who I’m working with, and to make sure that we’re on the same page. I also want my client’s to get a sense of who I am, so that they know that they can rely on me.
I take a collaborative stance when working. If my client has a sense of what’s needed, we’ll follow their instinct. But if things are unclear or stuck, I’ll take the lead on guiding us towards greater clarity.
