"David's coaching talents are unique in my experience.  His attentive listening enables him to describe the true nature of those hurdles and pitfalls that may be blocking your way to creativity.  But he doesn't just help you recognize the difficulties.  He then pulls out from inside you the very solutions you had no idea had been lying there in wait. I am grateful for his insights and support. They were of tremendous value to me."

"When we first began working together, I just couldn’t seem to get myself into the studio. With David's gentle but persistent support I placed a number of items in a local art store and even sold a piece!"

Dear David,

You don't know me - I'm just writing to say thank you for writing "Writing the River" because it has truly touched my life.  I'm in recovery from severe very early trauma.   I process through poetry, and your book has inspired me to put together focusing and my writing, and magic is ensuing.  "Writing the River" is such a precious metaphor.  Thank you, big thank you.
