Background and Focus
Daniel P. David, Ph.D. specializes in working with men of all ages and backgrounds who desire to improve their lives.
Dr. David specializes in working with young men caught up in addiction, struggling with anxiety and depression, and men stuck in limbo without direction in their lives. He works with all sorts of men from adolescents to corporate professionals, medical professionals, lawyers, small business owners, celebrities, college-aged men, young career seekers, and senior statesmen.
He works with men who desire to achieve deep inner healing. He has worked with individuals and families in crisis for more than 25 years.
Dr. David completed his postgraduate psychotherapy training at the University of Oxford in England. He achieved his Ph.D. at Walden University in Clinical Social Work/Human Services. His doctoral research was in the areas of human resilience psychology, trauma, compassion fatigue, and clinical practice.
He is skilled in Psycho-dynamic Therapy, addiction recovery, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Male Identity Therapy, Inner Child Work, Shadow Work, Unconscious Motivational Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Life Coaching. He provides individual and group therapy for men in Atlanta.
Dr. David draws from his 20 years of real-world experiences outside of the consultation room in addition to 15 years of clinical experience. After leaving the business and corporate finance world (Bear Sterns, Inc.) as a young man, he became an experienced community leader and ran a nonprofit agency and outreach program to street gangs in New York City as its executive director. He raised nearly a million dollars for various community programs through his business relationships in New York City.
He was also recognized for his work by the New York City Mayor's office as well as the New York State Governor's office and NY State Senators. He also has international experience living and working abroad on projects in S. Korea, Senegal (Africa), and in England. He worked for two British government agencies in London and Oxfordshire that aided refugee asylum seekers and disadvantaged populations.
Dr. David works with men to get to the heart of deep and often hidden wounds that are behind most self-sabotage and self-destructive behaviors that cause life-controlling issues. He works with clients using great skill, care, sensitivity, and deep respect for each person.
