David Maddalena, MA, MDiv, LMFT  Services  About 

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Lic. #109063

I work with people facing a variety of challenges, especially those that come at key life transitions: adolescence, young adulthood, midlife (and beyond), through all of our shifting roles and relationships. Change, conflict, and crisis can be painful and destabilizing—I offer care, support, and guidance when a life story takes a turn.

My private office is convenient to the whole of Silicon Valley, close to the meeting of Highways 85 and 280. I offer telehealth (video/audio) throughout California, and I am also able to work in the community or in-home, when appropriate and by special arrangement.

The process of therapy begins where you choose to begin. You know your hopes and concerns best, and I am committed to understanding your struggle from your perspective. It's common to begin with what's happening in the present, but we may look back at the historical roots of a current crisis, exploring early relationships and the impact of past events. Dialog, experiments, and exercises may help you gain insight, change thinking or behavior, or simply reinforce inherent strengths. Regardless of where the process leads, I hold the highest regard for your point of view, and for your right to choose the course of treatment. I will strive to listen well and apply all the expertise at my disposal, yet the therapeutic relationship is a collaboration: I have training, but you hold the keys to change. Your desire for growth and healing are essential to your success.
