About the therapist(s)

David Payne Wolf has been a cab driver, sports player, (amateur) musician and dancer, handiman, teacher…Now he is a SEPIT–Somatic Experiencing (SETM) Practitioner in Training. This therapeutic approach to trauma is the most effective way of “getting the body and mind” to work and live together. In 1987, David took classes in massage, dance, and a Master’s program for community counseling. He knew then, and he knows more deeply than ever now, that awareness of internal processes (thought, image, emotion, and sensation) helps anyone in making choices that make them happier and healthier.

His current licenses in counseling and therapeutic massage and his training in SE give him a wide range of skills that will surely benefit your growth–your self-acceptance, perhaps your sense of humor, even moving toward your dreams of life mission.

He’s also a father of two, grandfather of 5–and a greatgrandfather of one. He still dances, sings and plays the guitar…
