“David is one of the most relatable therapists I've met. At the prime of life - with his handsome looks, sharp suits, dorky glasses, and his mind – he's a veritable warehouse of sexual and psycho-social knowledge, David is a unique generational bridge between we baby boomers and the millennials. 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.
