Professional statement

David Kilgallon is a Licensed Independent Social Worker on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. He specializes in stress management, anxiety, depression, helping clients develop a sense of self, and clarifying a general sense of direction and purpose. He also helps clients work through anger issues, suggesting strategies for impulse control and ways to manage irritated, frustrated reactions.

Clients frequently come to see David when they’re feeling overwhelmed by stress related to work, school, or family. David helps these clients develop concrete strategies, such as mindfulness exercises and relaxation techniques, to approach their daily hurdles with a newfound insight and awareness.

David particularly enjoys helping clients carve out the time and space to prioritize themselves, and hopes that their weekly session inspires and empowers them to continue to do so outside of the therapy room as well. His practice is open to teens, college students and young adults, as well as adults across the lifespan, and his office is located in South Dennis.


Message to clients

I hope to provide a safe space each week that allows you a break from the responsibilities and expectations of work, family, and friends to focus on yourself. In a day and age, where we are always accessible and an immediate response is generally expected from us majority of the time, the decision to actively make time to focus on your own needs deserves praise in itself. My hope is that by helping you prioritize yourself for just one hour each week, that the other 167 hours of your week will feel more useful…providing hope that tomorrow will be better than today.
