Therapist in La Mesa, California David Kohanyi, LMFT

David Kohanyi, LMFT

David Kohanyi is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California who has been practicing since 2011.

David believes therapy is a place for radical honesty. It is a place for you to bring your whole self and be met with respect and care. Our lives give all of us plenty of training and practice in hiding from others and from ourselves. David is confident that you will feel gratified by having therapy be a place where you don’t do that. Here we can talk about the things that might feel like the scariest or hardest to talk about and in exchange you will get to experience a bigger, freer, more expanded sense of yourself and your own power. You and David will start by establishing rapport and building trust, developing a frank and compassionate acceptance of the reality of your situation, and identifying the changes you need to make to grow into the person you hope to be. David’s job gives him a real privilege, that of being a companion to people in their suffering and in their healing. David is here to assist you in that healing: to help you grow in mindful awareness, learn to engage with your thoughts and internal narratives, cope with distressing emotions, confront your fears, restore your ability to connect with others, and elicit states of flow and relaxation.

Outside of work, David is a husband and father to three young children. He’s interested in books, community, good food, concerts, exercise, travel, and exploring his Southern California home.
