David M. Harris
Psychotherapy and Performance Coaching - MSW, LCSW -
My mission as a therapist is to promote healing, positive ways of balancing, and joy in daily living. I cherish the opportunity to learn, teach, support, and challenge through my client’s greatest hardships and most brilliant moments. My style is interactive and supportive, yet challenging. I emphasize an eclectic approach, adapting a variety of therapeutic approaches that focus on my clients’ daily interactions. I also specialize in performance or leadership coaching for athletes, educators, and business executives.
I founded Positive By Design LLC to create a strategic network of independent clinicians and coaches skilled in several aspects of overall well-being – mind, body, and spirit. It has been my desire to have a trusted referral base to meet many of the needs of particularly the St. Louis region. Each of my associates are highly skilled and unique in their promotion of well-being. We all believe that Positive Design, as an overarching concept, is beneficial to well-being. We work to eliminate the stigma of mental health and mental illness; it is simply brain health! We help you identify and develop personal strengths while also identifying fears, hurts, or other factors that create limits to well-being. Our therapists and coaches will help you set goals and commit to healthy behaviors-Create a Life YOU Love!
You can be assured – We have a commitment to excellence when it comes to the level of care we provide!
