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.
David seems to be understanding of real life challenges and for this reason I am able to feel safe from judgement and bring honesty to the sessions – what I truly am challenged with as it relates to the practical side of life and the mundane everyday internal and external struggles (he is relatable).
David puts an emphasis on caring (bringing caring awareness to the diffrent aspects of the self). He makes room for what is and doesn’t use force as a strategy. Powerful yet gentle, progressive yet tender as it relates to moving forward from the debiliating effects of childhood trauma.
