“Unlike some coaches, David is very detailed and accessible. He utilizes a specific customizable coaching model based on desired outcomes and accountability, and includes supervisor involvement.

On the personal side, David always demonstrates the highest integrity and has the ability to be warm, open and supportive, yet remain at a clinical distance and professional.

I perceive that when people start pushing toward their individual peculiarities and comfort zones, he immediately makes them question their motives… and that’s powerful. This is something all coaches say they do, but in reality not effectively. With David, it’s a strength.”
