Professional statement

Dr. David Burkholder is a licensed professional counselor in both New Jersey and Virginia. He specializes in couples counseling, career counseling, and distress related to life transition difficulties, including anxiety and depression.

When working with couples, Dr. Burkholder utilizes the Gottman Method, an approach based on four decades of breakthrough research with over 3000 couples. When working with individuals, Dr. Burkholder provides depth-oriented and client-centered supportive counseling in order to successfully assist clients as they navigate through whatever challenge(s) they are facing.

In addition to being a licensed professional counselor with almost 20 years of clinical experience, Dr. Burkholder has also been a professor in a clinical mental health counseling master's program for over 10 years and has received extensive post-doctoral training in couples counseling.


Message to clients

For those seeking individual counseling, I offer extensive experience working with a variety of clients who have faced a variety of challenges. I view mental health struggles as developmental in nature and work with clients to navigate whatever they are facing. I provide a supportive and understanding environment for clients so that collaboratively we can make meaningful connections and insights while moving toward your goals.

For those seeking couples counseling, I recognize that many couples experiencing challenges in their relationship often cannot untangle these issues on their own. I specialize in working with couples to successfully navigate these challenges in their relationship and gain a greater understanding of themselves and their partner. For many couples, the context of therapy is the first time that issues are given a voice, and I use a practical and research based approach to help couples successfully break through barriers to achieve greater understanding, connection, and intimacy in their relationships.
