Transformation Is Possible

We all have a common desire: transformation. We long for our beauty and our unique purpose in this world to be seen, celebrated, and nurtured. We long for Shalom: connection, fulfillment, joy, a deep sense of rootedness and self-knowing.

If you find yourself in that space of longing, I have good news: deep wholeness, healing, and freedom are possible.


My years of experience as a narrative trauma healing facilitator and an ordained pastor equip me well to come alongside you as a guide in navigating your deepest heartache and the wounds that keep you stuck. My goal is to help you discover your own goodness and recover a sense of God's delight in you, as you grow in kindness and curiosity for your own 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 or get to… we walked there together, through the fire and back. I’ve seen healing that I never thought possible. I’ve experienced God’s kindness and mercy like I never imagined.”

Sean R., surgeon and missionary

"I found story work to be incredibly powerful. David listened and honored my stories, and he helped me process things that have happened in my life that have kept me stuck for years. The way he walked alongside me and engaged my stories taught me how to be kind and loving toward myself. I’m free now to give myself a break and allow myself to rest. 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 and business consultant

"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. Transformation through moving from feeling self-condemnation to self care and allowing God’s love and kindness toward me to shape my life story. I had no idea that healing like this was possible. David is a gifted listener who walks alongside you with empathy and skill." 

Sean M., pastor

"David will be a wise, strong, kind presence in the guidance and support of your healing journey. Because he is committed to his own growth and transformation, he knows how to be with people and their stories, past and present. He brings care with humble curiosity, generous grace, and invitational insight. His experience as a pastor and the work he has done around his own healing and flourishing make him exceptionally equipped to come alongside those in ministry."
