About David Ward's service

I am a Clinical Mental Health Counselor and have been working in the psychology field since 1996. I have had experience across the psychology spectrum from play therapy with children to adult locked inpatient units. I was a psychiatric medical assistant for four years with Inter-mountain Health Care. I also was a Behavioral Health Specialist with Aetna health insurance and helped to to design and integrate several of their behavioral health outreach programs. I have worked as a mental health therapist and counselor in a wide variety of clinical practice settings and bring a focused expertise to my clinical practice. Using a short term brief therapy model influenced by Motivational Interviewing with a high emphasis on client choice, I help clients focus on opportunities and growth. With multiple years of experience in treating opiate and alcohol dependence, I hope to offers a genuine understanding of the changes clients experience on their path to healing. I have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Westminster and a Master’s Degree in Counseling from the University of Phoenix. Overall, I have been specifically treating addiction and Mental Health populations since 2004. I hope to bring some opportunities for effective growth in working with you.
