David Fraijo is a native Arizonan. He is a healer, an author, a public speaker, and has run a healing circle for years. For years David worked in the swimming pool deck industry before a number of personal factors brought him to do his own healing work and get into recovery from codependency,  childhood trauma, and substance overuse. David believes that by working on himself he can affect others. David states “My only client is myself…if I work on myself, I can help others…but I am not going to try to fix anybody.”
