Professional statement

David Collins is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor at The Holistic Heart, in Warwick, RI. David works with young adults and adults who are navigating life transitions, looking to increase their self-understanding, or who want to deepen their connection to self and others. As a member of the transgender community himself, David is especially passionate about offering informed, affirming care to individuals identifying as transgender or nonbinary.

David's approach is based on the belief that we all hold a blueprint for Wholeness within. He works to hold a safe space for his clients in which they can embark on the important work of remembering and reconnecting with the wholeness that is already present within.

David has an intentional approach, and aims to offer value to his clients in every session. His style is interactive, non-judgmental, supportive, and engaging. He draws on spirituality and nature as emotionally protective factors, as well as helping clients explore, understand, and reframe thinking or behavior patterns that are not serving their overall well-being.

David is sensitive to the lived experience of the LGBTQIA+ and transgender communities as marginalized populations, and believes strongly in the importance of their access to competent and informed mental health care.
