David is a graduate of Boise State University with a Masters degree in Counseling, Graduate Certificate in Addiction Studies, and a Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology.

David is a cognitive behavioral therapist who uses a practical, interactive, solution-focused strength-based approach. He provides support and practical feedback, helping you find your individual tools for thinking about life in a new way and developing a wider range of possibilities. David employs a combination of conventional and alternative treatments, drawing on a variety of styles and techniques to incorporate what will be most helpful. With sensitivity and compassion, he works with each client to help them identify and build upon unique strengths to achieve personal life goals.

In general, David begins the process by listening to what brings you to therapy and gathers information about your background and history. Then, together, you decide on the goals of your treatment. He helps you resolve current problems and long-standing patterns by using methods that allow you to find answers within, leading to changes that meet your goals.

If you are experiencing stress, or a nagging sense that your life is not what it could be, reach out to see how therapy could help you learn about yourself and others and make changes you never dreamed possible.
David’s practice spans a wide range of ages, ethnicities and religions. David has been both volunteering and working with refugees since 2007 and is regarded as a multicultural counselor.

She completed her bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice, her master’s degree in Social Work at Boise State University and has been a licensed master’s Social Worker for over a decade.

Andrea is invested in an approach emphasizing a more integrative, dynamic, and holistic approach to mental health. She is particularly concerned with the impact of trauma and improving intervention to support trauma recovery for better emotional, physical and relationship health.

Andrea believes in working in partnership with clients, utilizing their strengths to help them sort out their challenges and achieve their goals. She also realizes how important it is to identify all aspects of an individual’s life that impact their well-being including their physical health, support systems (family, friends), work or school environment, and faith/spirituality in this process. In this new “Covid world”, the struggle is real, and it is more important than ever to take care of your mind-body connection.

Andrea has worked for the Department of Corrections and Child Protective Services, as well as multiple non-profits. Additionally, she continues to work part-time with Agency for New Americans, as she is passionate about staying connected to the refugee population. She feels fortunate to be a part of so many people’s lives at different stages and ages in their journey. Andrea is also a native Idahoan who was raised on a farm, knows how to milk a cow, and enjoys sharing Idaho trivia with anyone willing to listen. She believes in the innate power within each individual and helping them develop life affirming techniques and behaviors. In the words of Brene’ Brown, “Dare Greatly”!

Sarah has lived experience with multiple diagnoses, either personally or as a caregiver of family members. These diagnoses include depression, anxiety, ADHD, borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorder, ODD, OCD, anorexia nervosa, and bulimia. She is so pleased to be able to use that lived experience to help others and their families improve their daily lives.

She is passionate about expanding care to Idaho’s rural communities and ensuring that every citizen has access to quality physical and mental health care. Sarah is very active in local community theater and loves acting and directing as often as her schedule allows. When she isn’t involved in a show, she frequently performs one-man performances of musicals like Hamilton and Waitress, to the dismay of her family. Sarah lives in Boise with her husband, 2 kids, and 2 dogs.

Kimberly Moore, CPSS

Kimberly Moore is an Idaho native. She has always had a strong interest and curiosity in mental health. She is a little bit of a late bloomer, but is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. I hope to complete my degree soon so that she may pursue her ultimate goal; being able to counsel at-risk adolescents that are bipolar and schizophrenic with a master’s degree in social work.

Kimberly has been a certified peer support specialist for five years and enjoys it every day. She is a member of various psychology groups such as NAMI. She also has some experience as a care provider manager in assisted living facilities for the mentally ill.

As an Idaho native, Kimberly loves doing things in the outdoors. She likes to go camping, swimming, and biking. Living in Idaho motivates her to have inside hobbies, too. Kimberly enjoys reading, adult coloring, watching movies, and spending time with family and friends.

“Have courage. Be kind.”
