Working with David is incredible. One day I looked at him and it just hit me – I wasn’t only in the presence of a great mind, I was sitting with a truly compassionate soul – a real guy, and a genuinely good guy.” — Jaymes P.

“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.
