Testimonials

I am grateful for David’s encouraging and perceptive approach. He follows my lead, and using simple and effective tools/exercises, we always find our way to the heart of the matter. He provides a steadfast and safe container with his authentic presence, and he is spot-on with insightful reflections in areas that are more difficult for me to see for myself. I appreciate his gifts tremendously, and would recommend him to anyone looking for emotional, mental, and spiritual maintenance as we navigate the complexities  of life.

After working with David for several months I realized both my body and mind were developing a new awareness.  It would begin even before I came to the session.  The simple act of coming into his beautiful and intention-filled space created a new sense of calm in my body. Every time I sat across from David in our session​, I immediately felt safe and supported.  As the session continued, I would have insights and breakthroughs that would stay with me throughout my week.  All of this was possible because of the “container” that David holds.  His questions and communication supported me to come back to myself for the answers I am seeking.  This valuable support allowed me to take on new challenges and heal very old wounds.  I highly recommend David’s work to anyone who is curious.

You are welcoming and your integrity and interest immediately put me at ease. Your communication, caring, integrity, perspective and curiousity are great strengths.

The time I spent with David was a real learning experience. Feelings sprang up from nowhere. The counselling helped me realize where some of my deep emotions sprang from. I have a clearer understanding of myself and feel ready to take the next step. I felt very cared for and very safe in expressing myself with David. He was very sensitive to my needs…. It felt good to have someone care about me.

The counselling was valuable for me in assertion, risk-taking, being less paranoid, and dealing with feelings. David was great – great listener…and completely non-judgmental.

…the counselling process allowed me to become aware of what was at issue. It represented a beginning point…. In reflection it allowed me to see where I had progressed from and that I am the key to myself—helping me see and accept my own personal power and knowing that place more consistently. I found David to be very supportive. I was pleased that he continually led me back to myself. I found him to be very present and attentive…
