Written on Jan 27, 2022 after therapy with David for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, coping with life changes, coaching, compassion fatigue, and adhd

This was my very first attempt in my life to seek help to address my mental health. I was doubtful and unsure of the process and the outcome. On the very first call with David, I expressed my concerns about this process to David and he was honest about what I should expect. I instantly knew David was the person who could help me. Over the past few months, David has helped me to focus on the positives, make me understand my own rollercoasters, take necessary remedial actions, be confident and be proud of who I am. With David's help, I was able to understand myself better and in a positive way.

Written on Jan 10, 2022 after therapy with David for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem

I’ve been to therapy in the past, but never felt like I connected to any of the therapists. Especially being over chat, I was weary that it may happen again, but I instantly clicked with dave. He gave me worksheets and said things to me that were so on point, even when I didn’t have the right words to explain my situation or thoughts. Within less than two months, I’ve grown mentally more than I have in my almost 23 years of life. And I truly give that credit to david.
