Let's work together to

Establish Well-being and Happiness Practices 


Are you floundering a bit, feel a little stuck and directionless?


Maybe you just want to develop better well-being goals and mental health habits like gratitude, awe, connection, and mindfulness. 

Even though you might not be clinically depressed or stricken with anxiety or panic attacks, you still feel plagued by melancholy and unrest. You may also feel a little lost, and you are languishing about, looking for greater meaning, purpose and fulfillment.

Well-being is fundamental to our health and overall happiness.

Having a strong and well-adapted sense of well-being can help you overcome difficulties and achieve goals in life.

Benefits of Counseling

​Research shows that a greater sense of well-being is correlated with increased physical benefits, such as: 

  • lower rates of cardiovascular disease and stroke,  

  • improvements in sleeping habits, and 

  • higher productivity and creativity in both our professional and personal lives.

Positive Psychology and the Science of Well-being

Positive psychology is defined as the "scientific study of how people flourish." Or simply put, it is the science of happiness


The Come Alive Counseling and Coaching Collaborative can help you identify areas of desired growth and change and construct a clear path forward with the use of positive psychology research. Through a series of exercises and inventories to help you catalyze your strengths, capitalize on passions, and integrate well-being tools, short-term positive interventions and long-term well-being goals are crafted to address your needs and desires. 

We rely on relevant and tested research to support our work with you. We can collaborate to help you establish healthier well-being habits and positive psychology practices.   

Dr. Dave Stefan

Hello, my name is Dr. Dave Stefan. I’d like to welcome you to the Come Alive Counseling and Coaching Collaborative. I know life can feel overwhelming and confusing (and also hopeful) when you decide to reach out for support. 

As someone who has faced significant personal and professional challenges and come out on the other side with a much richer and more grounded sense of who I am and my place in the world, I can understand the range of emotions you might be experiencing.


You can learn more about how I improved my sense of well-being and happiness through my "12 Months to Live" and "Gratitude Project" podcast series. 

Based on my educational background, training, and personal experiences, I strive to create an environment that offers compassionate understanding, challenging encouragement, and research-based solutions.

 "Dr. Dave helped me clarify my goals, organize my steps, and follow through for success." 


"Dave’s attentiveness, compassion, introspection, and gentle prodding were pivotal in enabling me to breach distinct mental and emotional boundaries..." 


"Dr. Stefan has been a non-biased sounding board helping me to look deep into my desires in life and then pointing me toward paths and opportunities to pursue them."
