“I began working with David with a very specific desire to explore my introverted heart. Although I have many extroverted tenancies and am female, I really resonated with Davids message of working with introverts to get to our true natures.
In our sessions, I found David to be not only wise and insightful but a master at getting through my ‘noise’ and really calling me out in times when I needed it. He is also a great teacher and his intelligence shines in every interaction. I also found it easy to trust and be myself.
Our work together has brought new dimensions and self care practices into my life and also a glimmer of my introverted self out into the world. I am grateful for the time spent.”

“Coaching was a new experience for me and was not sure what to expect. The discussions were quite introspective. David is an excellent listener, asking questions that allowed me understand myself better. He also kept it very real and shared techniques to deal with stressful situations and to be more aware of mental patterns. David’s style is subtle, the conversations felt very calm and it felt very easy to be direct and open. I would strongly recommend to anyone who needs any coaching to work with David to reach their full potential.”
