This is a review of Mr. David Pecoraro. I have been his client for the last few months. David has been a pleasure to work with. He is very professional and an excellent listener. His calm demeanor makes me feel welcomed to share what is going on with me, at ease to express my feelings and comfortable to share problems I’m encountering. It is very healthy and helpful to release expressions I’m going through in the amidst stress, depression and discouragement that I’m confronting. His tools and exercises to mitigate stressful situations have also been helpful in overcoming the heaviness of carrying emotional burdens. I highly recommend David for his excellent counseling abilities.
