Dave Morantes, LLMSW

I  specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression, substance use and ADHD. While I work with children, teens and adults, I have a special aptitude for working with adolescent and young adult males. In sessions, I use a variety of approaches including CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy), motivational interviewing techniques and interpersonal resolution skills. However, my main approach is genuine concern for the human heart and this comes through in my work with clients. I believe it is the spirit of the person that drives the life experiences. 

I take relationships seriously, including the therapeutic relationship, recognizing they grow through effort and work. I help clients develop and strengthen relationships that give deeper meaning and purpose to life.  

I graduated from Michigan State University with a master’s degree in Social Work and an addiction certification. I currently hold a Limited License as a Master of Social Work. I am also ordained as a chaplain and have experience with a brief pastoral counseling model. 

When I am not working with clients at New Perspective Counseling, I can be found spending time with my wife and four children. I am passionate about the outdoors and embracing human relationships.
