Recommendations for Dave:


“This man with the grace of God has done more to help me than he will ever know. Not only has he always been professional but my friend. I am blessed to know Dave.

“David's role as a therapist for a very difficult child patient has been exemplary. I have never know a psychologist that is more knowledgeable, has more resources or a more extensive and varied background than he has, and puts them all to use in his therapy. I would not hesitate to recommend David to anyone for any type of counseling. His counsel, caring and wisdom in dealing with the patient and his parents has truly been exceptional.” March 22, 2010
