Dave has been an amazingly thoughtful resource for my daughter in helping her navigate school pressures without losing her mind. He has supported her in cultivating greater self-awareness and she is learning how to handle the normal bumps in the road with greater equanimity. I'm so grateful she's getting these tools at such a young age.
I found Dave because I was trying to decide whether to go to grad school or just find a job, but I didn't know what kind of career I wanted. He helped me figure it out, but he also helped me realize that happiness is more than just my career. When I started finding happiness in smaller ways, things came together easily. I decided to go for grad school, and that was the right decision. I love it so much! I might have figured it out on my own without Dave's help, but I would have been pretty miserable and hard on myself for the whole time leading up to it because that's how I am. But Dave has been teaching me how to go through transitions without draining myself. Whenever I see him, he makes me feel like everything is Ok. Since I've been practicing the things he taught me, life feels easier.
Dave is very sweet, and he makes you feel very safe. I wouldn't be where I am today without working with him. He helped me find a new job after I got laid off. What's more amazing is how he helped me stop suffering even before I got the new job. He helped me see that my relationship with myself was most important, and that I didn't have to kill myself looking for a job and take whatever came. He taught me to trust myself, and soon enough the perfect job just showed up. It was kind of amazing!
I've known Dave for 4 years, and in that time, he has always been helpful on my personal development journey. Firstly, he is trustworthy, inspiring, and empathetic. Something that really makes him stand out is the way he listens to understand, extends empathy and recommends action steps that actually works. Secondly, he is passionate and believes in my growth. I highly recommend him as a coach.
