My name is David Wu and I’m a licensed clinical social worker w/ over ten years of experience providing end of life & mental health services
Clinical Social Worker in Pleasant Hill, CA
My core approach to therapy is mindfulness focused, relational, and integrative. I am trauma sensitive, while integrating techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and somatics. Sessions consist of a combination of talk therapy and experiential & somatic activities that incorporate mindfulness and creativity. The approach is excellent for short-term problem solving and long-term in-depth work.
I support my clients in honoring their unique identities, pay attention to their present moment, their bodily and minds states with presence and kindness (a simple working definition of mindfulness). In turn, my clients can move lovingly towards their current struggles, mend and heal, clarify and envision, and grow and root in wisdom. They can also develop loving relationships with their chronic symptoms which can include: grief, stress, anxiety, depression, focus/attention, anger, etc.
