RedCliff welcomes back David Cacamis, CSW, in the role of primary therapist. David graduated from the University of South Alabama with a BA in Psychology. After spending several years with the Ascent Companies, split between RedCliff and Discovery Ranch for Girls, he went back to school and completed his MSW at Radford University in Virginia. David started working with adolescents during his undergrad through a community based outpatient facility and has made it his goal to continue working with young people ever since. Since he was a child, David has always had a passion for the outdoors and the compelling experiences it provides. Being able to combine his love for helping young people with the outdoors has been an incredibly fulfilling experience.
David will be working with both adolescent male and female clients and believes that a client-centered approach allows clients to identify their authentic self.
David tailors his therapeutic interventions to meet the needs of each student, using a holistic, strengths-based, humanistic approach, believing that unconditional positive regard allows for a foundation of rapport and strong therapeutic alliances.
"We are excited to have David rejoin our team. He brings a unique blend of field and therapeutic experience. We look forward to David continuing our commitment to healing families through the process of outdoor experiential therapy that works so well in the teen treatment environment.” said Steven DeMille, Executive Director.
