Before working with David Routly I had almost given up on therapy. I had tried several therapist from churches, private practice, and group therapy and had been very frustrated with the lack of real concern and honest communication or understanding. David has been the most professional and personal counsel I've had.

David has been extremely helpful. He listens very carefully and then provides very interesting insight, but the best part is that he explains how he arrives at such conclusions or gives me tools to understand the reasoning behind it allowing me to further process. Moreover, he has helped me prioritize the issues that I wanted to cover in therapy.

Best therapist I’ve ever worked with, by far

Being able to connect with your therapist I think is a very important part of the process. Being able to open up, and have someone who would relate and understand issues the way you do, is really how you get the best of this service. David was definitely that person for me- very professional and understanding and helped me understand things from a very different perspective. I've grown as a result and highly recommend David.
