David was able to help me start to realize things about myself that I think I was trying to stay away from, and it definitely helped me for the better. His approach is a bit forward, but I think that’s appropriate for the situation that I was in. I really was able to understand and carry out the changes David suggested and I think others can benefit from having his assistance as well!
