My passion is to see you make amazing changes in your life. With a background in personal and organizational transformation, I will support you in your quest for achievement.

I have a Ph.D in Clinical Psychology and graduate degrees in Theology and Spirituality. I am the author of three books on personal transformation and am fortunate to be an in-demand speaker and retreat leader.

Having been a Professor of Psychology and Spirituality as well as an ordained minister, I can relate to your desires to make positive and powerful change.

My background is not merely an academic one…I have real life expereience and understand your life’s challenges. I was a Deputy with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and retired from the Chino Police Department as a Sergeant; having worked in the patrol division, crime scene investigations, detectives and community relations.

I have been a consultant, trainer, retreat director and counselor in faith based settings, and served as a Priest in Episcopal congregations in California and Washington. In other words, I have seen people at their best and their worst and I understand what makes people “tick.” What I love about my work is that I am able to meet real people right where they are and use my 30 years of expereince and education to make a difference.

“My job is to help you make your dreams come true.”
– Dr. David James
