David G. Kalergis Jr., M.Ed., LPC

Licensed Therapist

Specializing in children and teens


Therapy for Children in Mt. Pleasant

I believe every child and parent has inherent strengths. My counseling approach brings this back into focus. There aren’t “bad kids” or “bad parents,” but there are circumstances that can reinforce or bring out unwanted behaviors and responses. It’s easy to get caught up in noticing the things that aren’t working, and to minimize or forget what is going well.

Therapy for Teens in Mt. Pleasant

Teenage years can be rough on parents and teens alike. It’s not uncommon for adolescents to feel out of place, depressed, irritable and/or anxious. Parents and teens may struggle to communicate. Even though teens love to say things are “fine,” a lot of the time they aren’t.


So yes, my site talks a lot about kids and teens, and even my practice’s name is centered around “Family and Children”, but I love to work with adults as well.

As an adult, if you choose to work with me, you’ll see I come from a supportive place to help uncover why things aren’t working the way you want them to work, and how to make things better.



My fee is $130 for a 55-minute session.  I have a sliding scale of $115 for a 45-minute session for client’s experiencing financial hardship.  I also offer a military discount to the children and families of active duty service members, and veterans.  I accept payment by cash, check, or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover)
