My name is David Wu, and I’m a skilled mindfulness & somatic therapist for adults in San Francisco Bay Area, and across CA & PA.

Clinical Social Worker in Walnut Creek, CA

About My Clients

Hi, I am David. I support folks who are activated or shut down, cycling in grief, trauma, and/or anxiety & depressive loops. Folks who are ready to belong - to be at home in their bodies, relationships, and communities. Folks ready to do the difficult work to love themselves & their bodies unconditionally and live in their authenticity bravely & gracefully.

What I Specialize In

I am an experienced mindfulness and somatic therapist. I guide clients on ways to release tensions and aches, to tend to distressing histories and experiences, stored in their bodies with as much ease and compassion as needed. I believe in your body’s innate capacity to mend, heal & grow. I specialized in working with those who have been othered; BIPOC and LGBTQ+ individuals, immigrants and folks of the Asian diaspora; high achievers and/in traditionally underrepresented fields; and frontline workers. You matter! Your body matters and needs tending and care. Perhaps you have been in talk therapy before and are looking for deeper solutions beyond immediate band-aids to stressors and problems. Or this may be the very first time reaching out for support just for you. Either way, our sessions can be a space where tenderness and ease grows and integrates in your body. REAWAKEN YOUR INNER WISDOM & EMBODIMENT.

My Values as a Therapist

I am a mindfulness and somatic-based therapist who focuses on the integration of mindfulness and embodiment practices for anxiety & depression, grief, and trauma resolution. In this time of uncertainty and great systems upheaval, we need to be intentional and creative in (re)connecting with each other and ourselves - to pause and (re)ground in our day-to-day. We need mending to sustain and to (re)imagine what is possible - for ourselves, families, communities, and systems. My core values as a therapist: 1) Strength-Based: This means witnessing, illuminating, and integrating YOUR strengths and truths shining through. 2) Client-Centered: I provide a judgment-free space so you can freely explore challenges & needs. 3) Mindfulness: Tapping into resources & awareness HERE, beyond reliving past pains & cycling in future worries. 4) Ancestry & Lineage: Some of the deepest challenges & connection occurs in the marrows of our families, ancestry, and lineage. We tend to them!
