I made a verbal contract with David about how I needed to feel my feelings instead of getting lost in my head. I was impressed with how well this worked for me and I was able to get to some really painful childhood memories that allowed me to heal or begin to heal—up until then I just kept refreshing the same old hurts. The work with David helped me to feel the pain I have inside of me. I must have been ready…. Instead of talking on and on David gently drew me back to become aware of what was happening in my body with my feelings and emotions…. David was an example of how healthy men can be in my life. Thank you David.
A few weeks working with David contributed to a qualitative shift in my ability to work through longstanding blocks including childhood trauma and related family conflict. His sensitive manner and gentle prompting created for me a safe space where I could open up about stories I’ve seldom shared while seeing them in new lights. David helped me develop insights into my personal history and, equally important, new tools to draw on when weighing options and finding positive ways forward.
