David is tremendous! He is a competent counselor who can create such a positive experience from often challenging times. His direct approach with couples allows for changes and insights in the relationship in a shockingly short time frame. Not only will you leave sessions with a greater understanding of yourself, your partner, and the relationship, but you’ll also leave sessions with a confidence and practical tools to implement effective change.

I enjoyed my time with David. He is very blunt and to the point which I liked, he is also very wise and offers good pointers and helped me build the “best version of me” up and I am truly thankful for my time with him. I truly recommend him for anyone who is feeling stuck, he will get you unstuck and help you find the best version of yourself. I would highly recommend to a friend.

Written by A.D. on Apr 22, 2020 after counseling with David for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship

Our counseling experience with David has been well worth it. My wife and I are very busy with family and work obligations so having the ability to do the sessions remotely at home has been extremely helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend David's services or the Regain platform.

Written by J.O. on Apr 02, 2020 after counseling with David for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

A couple weeks in session with David and I feel more positivity in my life and relationship than before. It's been a positive turning point that I am feeling more secure with the path we have chosen by taking a chance and going for therapy.

David's support of me while navigating life after leaving an abusive relationship has been invaluable. He helped me regain the confidence I lost, rebuild relationships with my kids and empowered me to take back control of my life with healthy boundaries. Thank you for helping me find the best version of myself!

Written by C.A. on Sep 03, 2019 after counseling with David for 3 months on issues concerning relationship

David's counseling style was very complimentary to our needs. He was very engaging and provided us with tools to communicate with each other more effectively. He also gave us assignments to do on our own time between sessions - some individually and some together. We both have busy schedules and it never felt like a burden to find time to meet with David. He made us feel that he was vested in helping us. Overall, we are in a better place as a couple since the beginning. We had a great experience with David and highly recommend him as a counselor.

Written by V.A. on Aug 31, 2019 after counseling with David for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

Written by J.E. on Aug 24, 2019 after counseling with David for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

David has been an incredibly valuable sounding board and advisor. He has helped my partner and me strengthen our relationship as well as deal with our individual issues relating to work and anxiety. We would wholeheartedly recommend him to any couples experiencing issues large or small.

Written by A.L. on Aug 15, 2019 after counseling with David for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

David has been a thoughtful, knowledgeable guide for my partner and I. He is experienced, respectful and intuitive. I really value his insights and the exercises he gives us individually and as a couple.

Written by M.A. on Aug 06, 2019 after counseling with David for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

We started our sessions with David regarding our relationship and focusing on our differences and problems. It was interesting how David brought out important aspects in our relationship that we had not realized before. I also had individual sessions with him and it was very much helpful. David is VERY experienced, patient, and smart! He spent more time than it was expected on each session and really cared about us and our relationship. I definitely recommend working with him.

Written by M.O. on Aug 06, 2019 after counseling with David for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

What I really liked in my experience working with David was his positive-reenforcement method. It's often the case that when partners stumble upon an issue, they limit their attention to their problem and forget about things that work between them. David, with his thoughtful comments and constructive exercises, helped my partner and I to have the full picture in view while working on our differences. Overall, I highly recommend David as he is a seasoned, generous, kind, and knowledgeable therapist.

David addresses my issues directly in a good way. I can tell he is experienced and well-versed. He handles difficult subjects with good advice and good points to think about. One of the best I have ever had in 28 years of therapy.
