Redeem Old Wounds

Trauma-Informed Narrative Coaching can help you:

I come alongside my clients as they explore the stories of harm and heartache that have impacted how they relate to themselves, others, and the world, and I help them discover the path forward to transformation and healing.

Rediscover Joy & Connection

Joy flourishes in an environment of safety and connection, when those around us truly see and delight in us. I help my clients move toward deeper connections in their lives and toward the joy that God has made them for.

As Maya Angelou said, “You can’t really know where you are going until you know where you have been.” I help my clients understand their story in a way that integrates their past and present, which allows them to chart a new course forward in line with their gifting and desires.

Confidently Own Your Story

“Doing story work with David changed my life. David walked with me, he cried with me, he cried for me; he fought for me and my broken heart. The deep hurts of my heart that I couldn’t seem to fix… we walked there together, through the fire and back. I’ve seen healing that I never thought possible.”

Sean R., Surgeon & Missionary

As a certified Narrative Focused Trauma Care practitioner, I help people make sense of who they are in the present based on the formative events that have shaped their past — because when you own your story, you can move toward true transformation.

Why Clients Choose Shalom Restored Coaching

“Freedom and Transformation. Those are the words I would use to describe the outcome of working with David. Freedom from allowing old wounds to control my present. I had no idea that healing like this was possible.” 

Sean M., Pastor

“David helped me process things that have kept me stuck for years. I was able to let go of things in my growing up years that I had no business taking responsibility for. I have peace and acceptance now.”

Rich L., Entrepreneur & Business Consultant

“Working with David was life transforming! The man that I entered into my first coaching session as, was not the man that I walked out as after my last session." 

Scott B., Business Owner & former pastor

“David went above and beyond my expectations in his investment in understanding my context, trauma, and future outlook. It felt like I was the only client he was seeing in our 6 months together.” 

Marcus D., Non-Profit CEO & Pastor
