“David is one of the most relatable therapists I've ever met. At the prime of life – with his handsome looks, sharp suits, dorky glasses, and his mind – a warehouse of sexual and relational knowledge. David is a unique generational bridge between we Baby Boomers. the Millennials and Gen Z. He can’t help but make people feel solid and safe on the path to deeper self-discovery. It’s his gift.” — Rob C.

“David’s got a wonderful laugh. I’m a comedian and, like many of my ilk, I use humor to deal with a lifetime of alienation and pain. How can a therapist understand my pain without the ability to join me in laughing at some of life’s absurdities?” — Lila S.
