Hello, I am David Vest


I originate from the Midwest and relocated to California after serving in the US Navy for eight years as a cryptologist within the intelligence community. Following my tenure in the Navy, I elected to pursue a career in law enforcement and successfully completed the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Academy in 2003. Acknowledging my desire to aid others, I pursued a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership from BIOLA University. I further honed my skills and knowledge by completing a Master of Science in Psychology in 2010, during which time I concurrently served as a full-time Police Detective assigned to Crimes Against Persons, Homicide, and Arson.


Through my varied roles and experiences, I have learned the importance of balance and mindfulness in achieving success while maintaining a fulfilling personal life. This lesson has enabled me to aid others in living their lives to the fullest by offering guidance and support. Throughout my career, I have held numerous positions, including as a professor, counselor, and business owner. My passion for trauma led me to pursue a doctorate in Psychological Traumas (Traumatist), which I am completing and currently in candidacy.
