Coming from someone who has never been to Therapy before I can say it is worth it. He has helped me get a better understanding of relationships along with all other aspects of my life I was having issues with. Super laid back and he knows his stuff

I have been talking with David for a couple weeks now, I know that’s not a super long time but what I can tell you is that he is very knowledgeable on a variety of different scenarios and does a great job with listening and giving an immediate response and effective mediation for each issue on the spot. He has helped turn my life around in very short time. I notice a night and day difference from 2 sessions ago, I was in a dark place and I think it’s safe to say that I am happy. That’s something I never thought I would be able to say again. He also connects transparently by relating to his own experiences. Thankful to have the opportunity to speak with him the information he gives out is not to be taken for granted.
