About Me

Hi, I’m David!

I’m a counsellor, social worker, and a proud dad. I started Solidarity Coaching and Counselling because I love walking alongside people as they gain more insight into themselves and make positive change in their lives.

Despite being a counsellor I avoided counselling for years in my twenties because I thought I could figure it out on my own. When I finally relented and got help I experienced healing in areas I didn’t even know were wounded, and it enabled to conquer bad habits that had dogged me for years.

My approach is structured, goal-focused, and conversational. I’ll help you identify the root of your problems, and find new ways of thinking and being that help move you towards your ideal self.
