Solving Problems. Creating Well Being.

Helping you engage in life, discover meaning, and reach your heartfelt goals.

Dr. David O’Grady

After 25 years in practice, my work still enlivens me, and I am deeply committed to my patients. First and foremost, I am a humanist–I see life as a process of growth and development. I believe strongly in the resilience of the human spirit and our capacity to create a true sense of well-being. I am board certified in clinical neuropsychology, the specialty that focuses on brain-mind relationships.

Psychotherapy provides a safe, confidential, neutral relationship to explore what hurts. We sit together in a quiet space being present to whatever feelings comes up.

Therapy is not only about pain but also learning to live well with the inevitable difficulties that life holds, and finding the laughter that lives alongside pain. Learn more …

The Goodnight Worry Program for Bedtime Fears

Some children are afraid to sleep alone. Despite reassuring words and checking under beds, your child can fall asleep only when you snuggle next to them at bedtime. Efforts to use reasoning to calm fears achieve nothing. Insisting on solo sleep may cause everyone’s patience to dissolve. Arguing and tears follow. In the middle of the night, more crying awakens you. Your child is now sleeping in your bed and cannot sleep alone.

Dr. David O’Grady developed the Goodnight Worry program in 2001, and over the years has refined this straightforward behavioral approach to solve this common problem.  Learn More …
