David has changed my life! He guided me through my emotions to break away from an addiction to alcohol and I am over 2 years sober. Next, he helped me change my beliefs around money and walk through my uncomfortable fears and blocks. I now have greater income and a financial partnership with my significant other. I know that none of this would be possible without David’s amazing coaching!”
