Daniel P. David is a warm, compassionate person and a skilled psychotherapist. He specializes in working with men who desire to improve their lives.

He offers a breadth of keen insights from years of real world experiences outside of the consultation room along with his extensive clinical training and expertise. 

Dr. David has worked with all sorts of men from adolescents to corporate professionals, medical professionals, lawyers, small business owners, celebrities, 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. He draws from a well of life experiences as a result of living and working with a broad spectrum of individuals and communities in New York City, the U.K., South Korea, and Dakar, Senegal Africa. 

Dr. David completed his postgraduate counseling psychotherapy training at the University of Oxford in England. He achieved his Ph.D. at Walden University. His doctoral research was in the areas of human resilience psychology, trauma, compassion fatigue, and clinical practice. His concentration was in Clinical Social Work.  

He is skilled in psycho-dynamic therapy, addiction recovery,  dialectical behavioral therapy, brief depth 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 experience in the world outside of the therapist's consultation room. After leaving the business and corporate finance world (Bear Stearns, Inc.) as a young man, he became an experienced community leader and ran a nonprofit agency and outreach 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 has a deep understanding of human nature and the dynamics of interpersonal relationships. His specialty is working through the unconscious thoughts, feelings, memories, hurts, and desires that can negatively impact our relationships, hurt self-esteem, and undermine confidence.

He is skilled in psycho-dynamic therapy, addiction recovery, dialectical behavioral therapy, mentalization-based therapy, inner child work, shadow work, cognitive behavioral therapy, and life coaching. He provides individual and group therapy for men. 

He 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 approaches therapy with clients using great skill, care, sensitivity, and a deep respect for all those with whom he works.

As a therapist and life coach, Dr. David has overcome many personal obstacles and experienced many changes in order to make his dreams come true. Today he spends much of his time helping other men to do the same. He has served as a "wellness leader" to thousands of people for many years. He continues to teach life principles with an emphasis on holistic wellness and recovery. As a gifted seminar lecturer, he speaks to the heart of where people feel their pain and their desires for change. He delivers an uplifting and practical message that speaks to the mental and relationship needs of people from all walks of life.
