Empty Yourself * Change Your Life * Fill Your Future

Dave Turo-Shields, LCSW, CEC
Kenosis Co-Owner, Founder, Visionary

Although no longer in clinical practice, Dave’s influence continues to have a significant impact on the services provided at Kenosis.  Associates and interns share his vision and embrace the core values and philosophy of working with clients in order that they can manifest desired change in their lives.

Dave created Kenosis Counseling Center, Inc. in 1998. Throughout his years of training as a clinical social worker and certified life coach, his vision has always been to celebrate strengths, moving clients from a good life to one which is extraordinary. He believes that having a joy-filled life is possible by enhancing happiness, abundance and success!

Dave also strongly believes that change is possible, no matter what the circumstance. He believes in the importance of being fully present with each individual in an authentic and genuine manner. It is in this way that "kenosis" occurs, from ancient Greek "to empty." His practice was founded on his belief of personal transformation, "Empty yourself, change your life, fill your future."

Dave completed his Masters Degree at Indiana University School of Social Work (IUSSW) in 1992. In addition to his more than 20 years of clinical experience, he was a seasoned trainer, workshop and retreat presenter as well as adjunct faculty at IUSSW. It is his vision, hope and prayer in life is to continue to support his associates and interns as they infuse individuals with joy and energy in their careers, their marriages, their families and their lives!
