David Darst, MFA, CPCC, MCC, ORSCC
David Darst recently earned the coveted credential of Professional Certified Coach through the International Coach Federation. He is also a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach and a popular Course Leader at CRR Global where he has trained over one thousand coaches in both one-on-one coaching and relationship and systems coaching.
Thought of as a "Renaissance Man," he brings a strong and eclectic background to the profession of coaching. Accomplishments along his personal path have included being a master carpenter and furniture designer, work in the entertainment industry—both in front and behind the scenes, as well as ten years of experience with people in the recovery of alcohol and drug addiction.
His private clients range from top execs and university professors, to young men getting out of gangs; from business partnerships to couples figuring out their relationship. They all love his mix of southern charm and big city irreverence.
Whether it be a twisted piece of wood or a human being in the midst of struggle, Darst has always had a knack for spotting and coaxing forth the beauty within.
Darst is the past President of the Los Angeles Chapter of the International Coach Federation (icf-la.com) and proud to be a member of the ICF and the Professional Coaches and Mentors Association.
