MBTI Testing – Know Your Personality Type
If you’re ever going to manage conflict while creating and maintaining meaningful lasting relationships with other people you first must know yourself.
Are You Struggling in
Personal & Business Relationships
Because of Personality Conflicts?
- Do you have recurring communication problems with your significant other or co-workers?
- Does conflict go unresolved at home or on the job?
- Do the same problems you have with other people continue recycling themselves?
- Do you often feel misunderstood?
- Are you frequently accused of not listening?
- Do people tend to misinterpret your intentions?
- Do people tend to get on your nerves more than often?
One of the most important things I have discovered, after more than 10 years of practice, is people cannot create a meaningful lasting connection with other people until they fully understand themselves.
Hence, for most of us that’s where the problem begins. Our perception of self is seldom accurate. More than often the way you see yourself is one thing, but how other people see you is yet another. Knowing your type is merely the beginning, having the meaning of your MBTI Assessment explained to you by Credentialed MBTI Master Practitioner is what gives you a decisive advantage in both personal and business relationships.
If you answered yes to 2 or more of the preceding questions,
you stand to greatly benefit from taking
the MBTI Form Q and the TKI Conflict Mode Assessments.
By taking these critical personality assessments you can immediately create a paradigm shift in your relationships. You will immediately do four critical things:
- Learn the blind spots in associated with your Personality Type
- Change how others perceive you.
- Effectively increase your capability in effectively communicating with others
- Minimize conflicts in both personal and professional relationship
Knowing your type is one thing, but understanding how your unique trait preferences drive your behavior, affect your perceptive process and moreover how it greatly influences how others perceive you is why you need your results interpreted by a Credentialed Master MBTI Practitioner.
* Upon completion of your assessments, you will be scheduled for a 90 minute feedback session with Credentialed Master MBTI Practitioner and Master Certified Coach Dr. D Ivan Young. The cost is NOT including in your test fee.
During this comprehensive 90 minute, one-on-one session Dr. Young will debrief you on your results. You will show what the report means and how it reflects why, and how, you perceive things the way you do and why other perceive you the way they do. This feedback puts the focus on your intrinsic abilities, your natural strengths, and how they are organically and naturally expressed by you.
During this feedback session Dr. D will help you to identify and define your current needs and future objectives. Immediately you will have clarity on the areas that tend to cause chaos and unease in your life. From this initial session will new develop the confidence you need to improve your communication

Dr.Young has been my business development coach for more than four years. He's helped me to evolve beyond my expectations for myself and my brand. Because of his hands on coaching techniques I have exceeded my own expectations in both my professional and personal life Thanks to Dr.Young im living my dream
Dr. D Ivan Young receives a 5 star rating for great customer service, great services rendered and professionalism. I’ve been going to Dr. Young for almost a year. I reached out to Dr. Young in search for a relationship counselor. I love the fact that he’s certified in MBTI and the approach that he took with my boyfriend at the time and myself. I loved the fact that Dr. D Ivan Young’s approach is to understand the personalities of your clients in order to better serve them. He also took the time to educate and explain our personality traits and the steps needed to take in order for us to move forward with our sessions and relationship. Moving forward, my relationship ended but my services continued. I was provided with personal counseling and gained a life coach. I highly recommend Dr. D Ivan Young for any of his services provided. I love the fact that he’s a “realist” and very motivating.
Dr. Young has profoundly touched my life. His expertise, guidance, and empathic soul propelled the acknowledgment of my true potential. Without his help, my children and myself, would have never healed or thrived from one of the hardest life changes a young family could experience. Dr. Young is kind, honest, and has such a broad, spiritually charged view of life's inner workings. He fuels your life with purpose and unleashes your potential.
First let me say, we are not related! 🤗 Dr. Young is an awesome, life coach! If you're looking for someone who will help you connect the dots that you can't seem to put together and will be honest (raw and uncut) he's your guy! What I admire about him is that not only does he uses the blueprint of the law of attraction, he is very in tune! Thanks Dr. Young!!
Dr D. Ivan Young has changed our family's life! He gave us insights that we needed, helping us to communicate with one another in a much needed and healthier way. After taking several personality types, he was able to specifically address each of our weakness and our strengths. He gave us step by step tools that were extremely helpful. Simple, yet impactful. I have been so encouraged with our family dynamics changing in such a positive direction. Dr. D helped us learn that power IS knowledge. Our family can now walk hand in hand bettering ourselves while bettering each other. We still have challenges ahead but we are better equipped to navigate life together, fully loving one another along the way. As a Life Coach, Dr. D has helped our young adult son learn to self actualize, to appreciate the blessings in life, and to turn mistakes into lessons. I have seen such a huge, positive change in our son! All thanks to Dr. D., who truly has an amazing God given talent to help others become the best version of themself. I am forever grateful for Dr. D's counseling and coaching with our son & our family, and for sharing his amazing gift in helping others! I highly recommend him, do not look any farther, you have found The Best.
Dr Young has truly been a blessing over the past year. When I first began seeing Dr. Young I was lost, and confused with little direction in my life. Since seeking guidance from Dr. Young I’ve been able to create a vision for my future and gain clarity in my life. I know what I desire for myself; I’m motivated disciplined and excited about what the future holds.
Me and my wife are relatively early in our marriage (3 years). We both are type A personalities and just could not figure out a way to listen to one another once we started to argue. Our arguments were caustic. It was all becoming too much to deal with and we needed some help to get us beyond ourselves. That's where Dr. Young came in. Dr Young is analytical yet down to earth in his approach. He won't bend the truth and will tell you just the way it is, which i like. His approach is structured which both me and my wife needed. This was a lot different then a lot of the other counselors that we called who did not really have a set method and often replied with "it depends" when asked what the next 6-8 weeks looked liked for me and my wife. Dr Young helped to educate us so we could see ourselves and better understand each of our personality traits and the when, where, what, whys behind each of our traits. We walked through how each of us deal with conflict and really got a better understanding of how we kept having a miss as it relates to our communication. If you are looking to make a change, if you don't have thin skin and need someone to provide the tools and resources to correct course in your relationship or in your life, then I would recommend that you pick up the phone and give Dr. Ivan Young a call. Don't let his high level of confidence push you away. I thought he was a little cocky when i called too. He told me to call around and that I'd end up giving him a call back. Hell, the man was right! I'm sure glad i did too.
Dr. D Ivan Young, has truly been instrumental in helping me re-align my focus and deal with the meat of things. Before, I guess I was merely dealing with surface matters. Now because of his guidance and truth, I am now on target to bringing some amazing things into fruition in my life. If you want help and someone to tell you the truth so you can have success and live your best life. I would recommend you call him. But, if you are not ready for truth or to do the work, please wait until you are truly ready for results. Because that is what he delivers.
Great behaviorist! Who always has your best interest at heart.
Dr. Young, is someone I highly recommend as a Life Coach. Dr. Young is honest, a man of integrity, and uses wisdom when speaking with his clients. He has made a huge impact on my life,by assisting with refocusing my attention on things that matter for my personal and professional growth. If you need truthful answers regarding your life, Dr. Young is someone I recommend reaching out to. Emma, Houston,Texas
I am spiritually nourished at my church home but after of a series of hits one after another after my divorce, the final blow was the loss of my father. Losing him just after my 40th birthday was just too much to bear. I was aligned and blessed to meet Dr. D Ivan Young. He put into perspective why I was having to endure so much and that I was being "carried" through it all. I was never left nor forsaken as God promised, I was just losing focus on HIS promise. I had not experienced such insightful, no nonsense and pragmatic information from a professional. Dr. D I van Young is most definitely a master in his field on every level. Mostly because he has expereinced in life what most are going through himself. So, he can speak about loss with clarity. He has helped me with every level of grief that I expereinced on most aspects of loss. As medically educated as I am, I had realised that eventhough I had an amazing father, who let me know that I was a beautiful, confident amazing woman from a young age up to the present, that I too still had " daddy" issues that spilled into some of my relatonships with men. He helped me overcome the feeling of lonelieness and that it is a good thing to be alone. You only become secure about who you are when things are silent and at that point does the meditation begins to heal not just your mind, your body and soul. You begin to heal as a whole. From a medical professional's stand point, I highly recommend this extremley professional doctor that is highly qualified in his field of expertise as a relationship expert.
Dr. Young and I must vibrate on the same frequency. Almost a year ago in a state of misery, depression and tears, I called his office just to schedule an appointment assuming I'd get an assistant. Instead, in this one instance, he decided to answer the call. He not only listened to what I had to say, but made sure I was able to reach him in the event of a crisis, after that. In our sessions this is what I learned: A balanced heart is a beautiful thing. However, most of us—at one point or another will encounter major blockages in this area. A myriad of life circumstances can cause problems for your heart center and in my case like a lot of his clients, it was due to a traumatic divorce. In his teachings, he provides guidance on how to connect with nature, be love, give love, forgive, and self-love is not being selfish. He held my hand and walked me through investigating my feelings of fear; harnessing the power of change, and don't laugh - being a little weird. Life purpose is inherently weird and unique to you. In other words: of course it’s going to look weird to others because it's wholly unique. You express your life purpose in a way that only YOU can. In the past year, my life has evolved to a whole new purpose and meaning! I with an open heart, filled with gratitude thank him for his wisdom and gifts!
I first encountered Dr. D after hearing him lecture on the Laws of Attraction in 2015. I was blown away by his engaging presentation. Not only is he an engaging and knowledgeable speaker, his communication style was very user friendly. Since that time our firm has retained him as our executive development coach. Our team is composed of people from 4 nationalities, age ranges from 24 to 59, and of course both genders. All of us agree that he's greatly improved our EQ and our performance as team for the better. I, my wife, and other family members utilize his services in his private practice. He has help to mend our marriage and repaired an estranged relationship between two feuding family members that's lasted for over a decade. All I can say is if you need to get order in your life he's the guy. This has definitely been money well spent.
Dr. Young is nothing short of amazing. When I first came to him I was lost and confused about where my life was heading. I was angry about my past experiences, and couldn't understand why I was stuck in the same cycle that I had been trying so hard to escape. Working with Dr. Young has been life changing. He helped open my eyes to so many things about my life that I was allowing to keep me stuck. Now moving forward I am healed from the inside out and have a clear vision of what my life's purpose is and what I need to do in order to become what I was placed on this earth to become. He is most definitely one of a kind and I guarantee you won't find a coach/mentor like him anywhere else.
Dr. Young is extremely professional and transparent. He taught me so much about personality and what I should and should not accept from others. He walked me through a difficult situation in my life and I grew so much from his guidance. When I compare who I was when I met him and where I am not, I am simply amazed. I would not be where I am today if it was not for Dr. Young. I have referred him to several people because his techniques are unlike anyone else I have ever met. Thank you Dr. Young for everything!
Dr. D. Ivan Young is the most dedicated professional that I have ever seen in the field of relationship counseling. His down to earth approach and friendly manner make him very approachable, and easy to be honest with, no matter what the subject. His wisdom is boundless, and I highly recommend that anyone who is advised by him should heed his advice. He has strong moral values and sincerely cares about others. It is a great pleasure to read his writings, and I always learn something useful.
I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Ivan Young on many occasions. He has successfully guided me through several life challenging relationship issues. Dr.Young was always very knowledgeable on all subject matters that we discussed and he has always been extremely professional and courteous during our consultations. I am looking forward to a continued professional working relationship with Dr.Young and without any hesitation I highly recommend his professional business services.
Dr. Young showed me how to use the scientifically based MBTI tool, which has helped me become more successful in personal and professional relationships. Dr. Young's coaching techniques has made a big impact in my life.
Awesome speaker coach counselor motivator. He is the man to get connected with when you need direction.
Dr. Young is the best. If you can handle the truth, he's the best.
Dr Young possesses a unique and very effective approach. Simply put, he is a master at what he does. He is a deliverer in more than one sense of the word. He delivers a great service and delivers you from your relationship confusions. If his objective is to deliver you from what is holding you down, he will accomplish it and you will surely emerge a winner. This I know, because I am.
Dr. Young has a very structured approach. Prepare to study on your own on a weekly basis to get the most from his coaching. You don't receive directives, templates or instructions, you work towards gaining an ability to see things clearly and find the right solution in any situation life brings your way. I wish I did this sooner in my life.
Very Insightful and Life Changing

If you want honest and true answers about yourself or guidance with overcoming obstacles you never knew were in your way, Dr. Young is definitely someome with integrity to contact.
Excellent take charge advise
Dr. Young had helped my family be on track to grow into successful professionals. And are we are going individually we are also growing to build a stronger family unit. Dr. Young does not sugar coat and will get right to the heart of the issues. He is very easy to contact and responsive. We defiantly felt that our family was a priority to him. His ability to come up with a plan for our family was impressive. He communicates his opinions and shares them in a way that everyone in the family felt comfortable with. I felt Dr. Young went above and beyond to help our family get on track. I felt Dr. Young was not just doing his job but that he most certainly cared about my family and our success in life, success as individuals and as a family unit.
Dr. Young is the best - Thank's for The Reality Check
If you told me I'd be writing a review about my private life for everyone to read I would have never believed you. As an introvert, I'm not big on sharing my business with the general public. But this guy really helped me to stop self sabotaging my life. I had no idea how being so extremely introverted had adversely affected my entire life. Though I have my Ph.D., not only was I not aware that I was so introverted, I had no clue what it had cost me in all areas of my life. Moreover, I didn't know how to overcome what I believed was just me liking my peace and quiet. Dr. D was the third person I'd seen, including two psychologist and even my pastor. After two failed marriages, working for 15 years in a career that I felt stuck in, but it allowed me to hide in my office. Dr. Young helped me to realize that many of my issues with others started with me. Moreover, one of my kids was following in my footsteps. Long story short, This man helped me to find clarity without me abandoning my core identity. In the process he empowered me to change my life. I highly recommend him. Especially if you're introverted like me. Because of Dr. Young, my relationship with my kids is so much better. I'm dating. I communicate so much better others and I've gotten out of my comfort zone and love it (which is something that I thought I'd never do). I just finished 8 weeks with him and now I'm a totally different person from the shy introverted woman who walked in his office. He's definitely no cheap, but his results are priceless. Worth every penny.
Encouraging Words to Live By...
Dr. D, I wanted to share some comments with you from my father! It means the world to me to be working with you on being the best I can. To have my father get what we are working on is amazing! I sent him a few links and of course your website. Below is what he thought after truly researching you! Z's Dad.... Have listened to these recordings. The person's teachings are a positive force to incorporate into your personal behavior. The trick is to accomplish this. Dr Young's main message is To stop being what you think others want you to be and start being your true self in your every day activities. I think the biggest mistake I made in my life was to to try being someone I wasn't. The problem was, I was good at it. The secret is to find something your good at that allows you to be your true non pretentious self. The resulting behavior will be contagious and attractive to others. That's my two cents worth. I hope you benefit from this person's teaching. Thanks for sharing. Dad
Transparent Professional Coach
I value Dr. Young's services because of his ability to relate, connect and provide valuable feedback to enhance my life and achieve my full potential across all levels. His transparency and realness is what makes the true difference in his field. I would recommend him to anyone considering a service like this-your experience will be life changing for you and those you encounter!
Extremely professional and highly qualified level of service
Who do you call?! GHOST BUSTERS! Much like the well known "Ghost Busters" Dr. Ivan Young is there when you need him most. His knowledge, profound sense of direction, and gifted guidance sets him apart from his peers. I truly believe he has answered his calling within the world; helping good people meet their greatest potential in life.
Dr. Young's unorthodox method of counseling has been a life-changing experience for us. We would like to thank you Dr. D for taking the time to provide us with your unconditional patience, kindness and raw-honest guidance. Your guidance throughout our difficult time was nothing less than impeccable. You showed a sincere interest and were continuously there for us the entire period. Thank you for helping us grow professionally, spiritually and personally and most importantly for showing us the tools necessary to continue to do so.
People Let Me Tell Ya 'bout My Best Friend
This Guy Changed My Life
I first encountered Dr. D after hearing him lecture on the Laws of Attraction in 2015. I was blown away by presentation. Not only is he an engaging and knowledgeable speaker, his communication style was very user friendly. Since that time our firm has retained him as our executive development coach.

All I can say is if you need to get order in your life he's the guy. This has definitely been money well spent.
Dr. D is a Miracle Worker
I'm not one to write a review and I don't like putting my business in the street, but, this is one time that I can't help but give somebody the credit they deserve. Dr. D basically saved my life. If it were not for this guy there's no telling where my life would be right now. I was referred to him by a coworker after she told me how he helped her get her career back on track and helped her get out of 15 year dysfunctional marriage. Long story short I was sick and tired of my job, my husband and even out of control teenage kids. To be honest I was two inches from just quitting my job, leaving my marriage and telling my kids I'm done. Everything and everybody was getting on my last damn nerve and driving me nuts. Beyond that I sure wasn't ready to spend a couple of thousand dollars on shrink. But, this is the best investment I've ever made. Like he told me, I'm putting everything and everybody first but me. He was right. I just finished working with Dr. D for over 7 weeks and today I'm a totally different person. I've got a new job, making almost double what I was making. I've lost 20lbs. My husband started seeing him too, as a result our marriage is better than it's ever been. But the best part is I am finally happy. This guy is the truth. I've tried everything from meeting with counselors at church, to using the crappy counselors my job provided and none of that worked. If anything they were a waste of my time. Dr. D did more for me in 7 weeks than any of those people did in years. All I can say is God bless this man. He is the best. I can 100 percent recommend him. If he can help me he can help anybody.
My experience with Dr. Ivan D Young
Dr. Young was great for us. It wasn't your traditional type of counseling, but something much deeper and more powerful than any other counseling I'd ever experienced. He helped our family as a whole and that in itself was more than enough. He was professional, kind, and patient. I would definitely recommend him if you need help.
The best master coach there is!
I got my life back. For the first time in years - I'm Totally Happy
All I can say is Dr. Young lives up to his phenomenal reputation. I was a big fan of his on Facebook and of his books. After following him for years I finally sent him an email. Much to my surprise he actually called me back. Needless to say I was shocked. To be a celebrity this guy is really genuine and down to earth. I did the 6 week program and now I'm just over halfway through it. All I can say is I've progressed spiritually, emotionally and mentally more in 4 weeks with him than I did in 3 years of seeing my previous therapist. He told me coaching is proactive and his way of doing it is nothing short of miracle working. For the first time in my life I have clarity. If you're stuck, I highly recommend him. He's the best.
Not Your Typical Therapist
I'm not the person who writes reviews or puts my business out there. But Dr. D is worth the effort. This guy is so far from the BS therapist I've had in the past. To be honest when my wife said let's see another counselor I wasn't feeling it. But, after I came in I immediately saw that this guy wasn't the typical shrink. He is as down to earth as he is smart. Not only does he know his shit he'll call you on yours and that's exactly what I needed. I really got inside my head. For years I was putting myself and my soon to be ex wife through needless hell. Dr. D helped me to man up and be honest with myself and everyone else. Now after 8 years of being stuck I'm all the better for it. Had it not been for this guy I'd still be miserable and so would my wife. He's worth the money. If I had it to do over again I would have gone to him a long time ago.
Just heard him speak for our business development team. After two years of over priced boring keynote speakers All I can say is Dr Young broke our losing streak. He is a very entertaining and brilliant speaker. Well worth the money. I thoroughly enjoyed his engaged energetic presentation.
Highly recommend Dr. Young
Professional, Kind and Helpful
Dr. Ivan Young is a caring person who offers great advice and knowledge to those who seek it from him. I reached out for career and personal advice in the past and he responded without judgement or knowing anything about me and I will always appreciate that.
I truly feel honored to have made the acquaintance of Dr Young. The sincere interest he showed in my brand made me take myself more seriously. Attending the MPAC conference in Houston was such a defining moment for me...its not coincidence that Dr Young was present for my personal and professional rebirth. Peace and blessings.
Excellent quality service; very professional and friendly
I have had the pleasure of working with Dr.Ivan Young on many occasions. He has successfully guided me through several life challenging relationship issues. Dr.Young was always very knowledgeable on all subject matters that we discussed and he has always been extremely professional and courteous during our consultations.

D. Ivan Young - A Man of Inspiration
From the first post I read on FB by Dr. D. Ivan Young, I was blown away. It's amazing how someone you don't know, have never met can pinpoint and expound on my current situation. His writings are very deep and we'll thought out, which is something I see a lack of in some commentary. I truly appreciate the words of encouragement, the inspirational thoughts, and his ability to connect with his readers. I look forward to the next post. Especially on those days when I'm just not in a good mood. I find his posts uplifting and at times I will repost so others can appreciate them ad well. I pray that God continues to speak to and through him. Kudos to you Dr. Young!!!
Love reading your post. Since coming in contact with your page, it has opened my eyes a lot. It's very informating and helpful. Keep reaching out to those who need it most.
Dr. Young is the best.
After my divorce I simply wanted to put the pieces back together. I tried everything from my Rabbi to traditional counseling. Nothing seemed to truly address my issues. Then I read an article written by Dr. D Ivan Young on YourTango. I contacted him and much to my surprise he contacted me personally. After working with him for 4 weeks several of my friends told me that I was acting noticeably different. To this day I have clarity about my life and have discovered my true purpose. I attribute both to my Life Coach Dr. D. This man truly knows what he's doing. I highly recommend him as a life coach.
Dr. D Ivan Young is truly AMAZING at his profession. In the short amount of time my daughter and I have spoke with him, he has made a hugh difference on how we see our relationship. He is helping us transition our relationship from me viewing her as a child to respect and trust her adult decisions. Dr D Ivan Young came into our life at a critical time.... He listens, understands and just is in tune into the struggle we are having. I feel he is a blessing that came our way, that we so needed. Thank you, Dr. D Ivan Young
Before I started with Dr. Young I was in a bad place. I had allowed my situations in life to control my outcomes. Working with Dr. Young and learning about my true self and gaining the necessary tools to change my life ourtcomes have made me a better person in all aspects of my life. I am thankful for the opportunity to have met and worked with Dr. Young and would recommend him to anyone. Thank you Dr. Colin M. Davis
Quality Service From An Awesome Team
Our company specializes in consulting services for distinct high end clients. Seldom do we outsource anything especially to other firms who could compete with us. In short, we found ourselves in a position where we had no choice but to augment our services with another provider. Dr. Young came highly recommended. He and his team lived up to the hype. Giving credit where it's due, Dr. Young and his organization not only solidified our contract with one client, but was instrumental in helping us secure our largest contract to date. This guy under promised and over delivered. We will definitely continue using him and his team. They are a valuable resource.
Professionally gifted by all standards
Dr. Young is a brilliant man.
After being transferred to America from India I had many unique challenges. My greatest difficulty was to adapt my leadership and communication style to the way things are done in America. As an senior engineer and division manager it is not common to focus on personality type and rapport skills. I sought the services of Dr. Young in the second quarter. He worked with me and my team on emotional intelligence, diplomacy and client retention. In addition, myself and many of my team members decided to work with him on a personal level as a executive development coach. I can say has been and is most professional and attentive to our needs. I highly recommend his services.
He's the best.
I've been a professional athlete for 4 years. After being traded, injured and traded again, I almost lost it. That's when my wife suggested I find a life coach. This guy is the best. I've had some of the best coaches in NFL and in college. But Dr. D keeps my head on straight on and off the field, especially during the off season. I highly recommend this guy. He's there when you need him. He's keeps it 100.
Professional & very giving
Dr Young always makes himself available to give back and help others. He is also a DYNAMIC speaker.
Dr. Young is a compassionate and brilliant man.
I can highly recommend Dr. D Ivan Young. I am a mature well educated successful Jewish woman and mother of two physicians. Being a health care professional myself, I, more than most, look for brilliance when seeking the services of any health provider. After reading the all the good reviews, and one allegedly bad review, about Dr. Young I must admit I approached him with one eye open. But my concerns were quickly put to rest. Whomever said that this man is not professional must not know him. After working with him for two months, while attempting to save 25 year doomed relationship, I got the clarity I needed to pick up the pieces and move on. What I like most about him is that he told both of us that his upfront goal was not to save our failing marriage, but to save both of us from ourselves and each other. Never have I had a therapist be so honest and direct. It was the truth that healed me and help both my husband and myself to get on with our lives. Since then I keep Dr. Young on retainer. He's the commensurate professional. If you want real help, he's definitely a person that I can highly recommend.
Dr. Young Fixed My Life
I typically wouldn't take the time to share my personal business with the public, but I decided to do this so that someone else could get be moved to get the help that I so desperately needed. I'm a single professional woman who owns a successful business. After 8 years of marriage I found myself in the middle of an ugly divorce with two kids. A 5 year old son and a twelve year old daughter. Prior to Dr. Young I sought the help of two therapist who did nothing but waste my time. Truly I was done with anything having to do with therapy. Then I read an article that Dr. Young wrote and decided to look him up. Honestly I didn't think he'd call me, but he did. From the start Dr. Young was the exact opposite of the two therapist I wasted my time with. From the first conversation I could tell that he genuinely cared about me and my situation. Not only was he more in touch with reality than the others, he wasn't giving me the cookie cutter BS I got from them. Though he doesn't accept insurance you definitely get more than your money's worth from him. (he's not cheap, but you get what you pay for) I've almost completed my first 6 weeks with him and I'm definitely signing up for six more weeks. My life is back on track, the depression and loneliness is gone, and I feel like I'm finally back in control of my life. I love this guy. He's great at what he does.
He fixed my staff!
After successfully owning and operating a family business for years, my employees was destroying my business that took me 10 years to build. I did everything from putting people on probation to firing them. Nothing worked. Even when we hired new employees the old ones messed them up to. I heard about Dr. D from a friend at the City of Houston. He told me how he transformed an entire division of laborers. His services cost but it was way cheaper than losing my business. Within 4 weeks Dr. D completely changed the attitudes of everyone working for me, including me. This guy the real deal. His methods was unlike what I expected, but they worked. This man is worth every penny you pay him. If you're employees is as screwed up as mine was, pay the man. He knows how to motivate and fix people. He's the best.
He's the real deal
Dr. Young fixed my life. I got out of a horrible one sided relationship that is been in for years. He's the best.
He helped me to "Break Up, Don't break Down"
Straight forward, honest and knowledgeable!!!!!
I have been coming to Dr. D Ivan Young for a couple of years and have seen drastic improvement in my relationship and career. He is able to fully dissect situations and articulate the meaning so I can make the best decisions. My relationship with my spouse has grown because we apply Dr. D Ivan's concepts. I have also received a promotion at my place of work because I've learned how to deal with problems in a professional environment. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone that is open to learning from someone that has perfected his craft. Thanks.
Our experience with Dr. Young put a lot of things into perspective as it relates to requirements and expectations in a relationship. Dr young was able to dig deep into the root of the issues and give very sound advice as to how to approach situations in ways that would advocate for results. He literally saved out relationship and we are married now because of it. We would encourage any one to make this investment into your relationship. It will all be worth it in the end! Thank you so much Dr. Young!
I highly recommend Dr. D. Ivan Young!
Dr. D. Ivan Young, is very intuitive with such a fresh prospective on personality traits and relationships. Best of all, he does not candy coat anything. I really appreciate his tough love, realism and sincerity.
As a Christian Leader, I find Dr. D Ivan Young’s messages foundationally sound yet controversially and spiritually thought provoking to those who have a basic non-working faith. His books call for self-evaluations that rebuild unstable foundations and repair broken ones with developmental plans that charter the path to improved quality of life for those who apply the principles. Dr. Young’s books, Break Up Don’t Break Down and Another Chance are great counseling tools that transforms the lives of those whom customary religion may never reach.
Professional and friendly
Great incite. Wish him the best with his already well established business of helping others.

Not Just Counseling, But Life Application
I excitedly retained Dr. D. Ivan Young to provide entering college freshmen a jump start with making the transition from high school to college. His charismatic and laser-focused delivery reached the students in ways that could not have been more successful. It is nothing less than fulfilling when students put down their phones and eagerly await Dr. Young's advice.
Incredible listener & seeker of the Truth...
Dr. D was incredibly helpful in providing insight into my personal and professional life because he is a careful listener and knows how to ask the right questions. His talents are in his ability to recognize and approach an individuals healing in the way that will best suit them. For example, I am a no BS kind of gal and I sincerely appreciated that he understood that about me. As a result he gave me the truth no matter how good, bad or ugly. Some people may need a softer approach to learning about themselves and I believe Dr. D can offer that as well. In the language of love Dr. D is also an expert in my opinion. His awareness of himself and his experiences allow him to draw that awareness out of those he's working with as he did with me. I also just genuinely appreciated having his raw, real, male perspective. He has helped curve my 'perceptions' of specific situations into seeing the truth and recognizing the reality at hand so that I could move forward. I would highly recommend Dr. D to anyone looking for guidance in any part of their life!

As someone who is also in the business of empowering people, I would unhesitatingly and wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Young and his work to anybody.
My Experience with Dr. Young
Dr. Young has help so many couples restore their marriage. He also believes in giving back to the community. Last year he made a charitable donation to The Jace Magazine first time Christmas fundraiser. Thanks Dr. Young !
Professional and friendly
Dr. D. tells it like it is in a very professional way. He is saying what others are thinking. Great consultant!!
I am pleased to write this review for Dr. D. Ivan Young. Dr. Young began working as a member of the spring 2012 motivational speaker series at the Urban Academic Village (UAV). He also returned to volunteer his services again (2012-2013) to the second freshman cohort. In the fall of 2014, he came to University of Houston - Downtown (UHD) to speak with some of my business school juniors and seniors.From the very beginning he was engaged and enthusiastic about working here with the students. It was evident that he wanted to contribute at the maximum level. He distinguished himself through interaction with cohort members. He thrived on this ‘give and take’ interaction which afforded the opportunity to acquire new perspectives and advance his knowledge base about the significance of this program. Dr. Young stood out as one who delved deeply into the content of leadership and exemplified those characteristics. As a speaker, Dr. Young was engaged in the learning process, reflective of the pertinent issues discussed, and a keen inquisitor into the knowledge base. He demonstrated his competence in numerous discussions we have had over the past 4 years. He demonstrated a knack for persuasion from a point of view and in reasoned responses to arguments presented by colleagues. Dr. Young exemplified dynamic leadership to support the freshman cohort model which aims to improve interpersonal skills. Some of the other behaviors that cohort members are taught through the faculty in residence are collaboration, empathy, effective communication, and decision making. Dr. Young understands the cohort model and is a source of inspiration to other members of this community. He continues even now to be an inspiration to students from all walks of life
Professional. Courteous. Personable. Compassionate. Compelled to induce valued relationships. He knows the redeeming qualities of Love. And shares an appreciation for fine "traditional" cuisine! Can't beat that conbination. Kudos Dr. D !
Quality and Quantity
Dr. Young is a consummate professional who seeks to inject his clients with solution driven remedies that can be realized in a person and organizational culture and climate in a relatively short period of time. He is certainly both style and substance. As public executive, it is not often you find a person who represents the interests of clients above that of oneself. It is an honor to have had the experience to work alongside such a remarkable human being.
When my husband and I went to Dr. Young we were on the brink of divorce. I was hesitant to try counseling because I didn't think it would do any good. Boy was I wrong! Dr. Young kept it real with us! He touched some very sensitive matters for the both of us and it helped! Every session wasn't easy, but each one played a vital part in helping us deal with our issues. Our marriage, our communication and our understanding of each other has improved tremendously! I'm so glad we decided to get counseling and I'm even more grateful that we chose someone as real and as passionate as Dr. Young. We love him! 😊
Excellent quality service
After I experienced two major life changes, I met with Dr. D. Ivan Young for coaching. Dr. D. Ivan Young's interpretation of my MBTI Form Q test has resulted in a positive change personally and in my relationship with others. After he did a phenomenal job of explaining my personality type and provided an explanation of other personality types, I was able to apply what I learned to improve relationship with myself and others, as well as, improve my perception and reaction to situations that occur in life. I recommend his services very highly. Thank you so much Dr. Young!
professional and friendly
"Dr. Ivan Young is a caring and loving professional that cares about his work so that he can give his best to others that really needs his help. This is a person that show compassion, empathy, honestly, and love. He loves what he does and he will always look for different ways to provide all the care where it's needed.
Dr Young is not only knowledgeable and versed but real and down to earth. He is relatable and doesn't hold any punches. If you want the truth from someone who genuinely cares, he is your guy! I wish I could afford to see him daily. :-) If you want help in a relationship or even for yourself, give Dr Young a chance. I found him searching for a therapist my boy friend would respect (typical alpha male) and despite his reservations about needing therapy, he obliged me. After our session he actually said he would go for a second visit. If he could get through to my army vet, alpha male, avoidant attachment boyfriend... he can clearly work miracles.
Excellence at it's best!
If you're looking for a solution to your relationship problem instead of a quick fix, you have found the right person to help. The most admirable thing about Dr. Young is that he does not give up. He is persistent in helping you, even when you have given up hope or ran out of breath. He has a comforting word, or will tell you to "get a grip". :) Either way it's always just what is needed. He has the gift and insight to know what each person needs according to who they are. The Personality Test and Conflict Test that he administers are really helpful in assessing those seemingly hidden problems in relationships.
Thank you Dr. D Ivan Young
Dr. D Ivan Young is a compassionate, and patient professional who really cares about and helps people. His commitment goes far beyond traditional diagnostics or humoring people while listening to their problems. From the beginning of therapy, he endeavors to develop an authentic relationship with a safe space for the exploration of my emotional wounds, fears, and disappointments. He help me a lot through my difficult times and I will highly recommend his help to everybody who needs a such a help .

If you really want to do/be better...
Life isn't always an easy thing to do or deal with. I am not a fan of divulging my personal information or sharing intimate details of myself but I know when to ask for help or perspective. Dr. Young, while not completely "conventional" is a true life coach and advocate for living life enlightened. His education/training gives the necessary academic background but his own life trials authenticates his methods. He helps the willing to wade through pain, confusion or just prudent planning of life. I have recommended him to more than a few people I know and would again.
Knowledgeable and uplifting

Words can't express how Dr D Ivan Young inspired my life.I connected on Facebook with him.I needed the inspiration being a single Godly parent of two daughters. I shared so many of his inspirational messages. Because of him and God speaking I have become a better person in daily relationships. I have become wiser, more discerning and forgiving. Thanks for making me a better individual.
