David Burke, PsyD
Licensed Clinical Psychologist
I help people identify the deeper causes of their problems and make important changes in their lives. My aim is to help people to develop greater self-awareness and internal strength, find meaning and hope, and cultivate more satisfying relationships.
Clients describe me as a skillful, caring, and nonjudgmental therapist who is responsive to their needs and dedicated to their improvement. I work actively in the present, helping individuals to see new perspectives and find practical solutions, while exploring the deeper factors and earlier experiences that inform their current struggles. As a psychologist in practice over 15 years, I have experience working with a wide range of life challenges including depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, poor self-esteem, stress related to work and school, difficulty managing emotions, LGBTQ concerns, and addictions and compulsions. I have a particular expertise in helping individuals and couples work through relationship problems. I have two offices, one in the Beverly Hills area and the other in Downtown L.A.
I tend to focus from a psychodynamic perspective on the deeper aspects of a client's emotional experience and difficulties, but also take a quite pragmatic approach to helping people with their everyday concerns, using methods from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and other disciplines. I work with adults of all ages and backgrounds and offer therapy to individuals and couples. Couples therapy is a specialty of mine, and I also frequently help individuals having problems in their relationships or difficulty establishing relationships.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): A form of talk therapy that trains clients to recognize
patterns of unproductive thinking and learn healthier responses to challenging situations.
Psychodynamic Therapy: A clinical approach that aims to promote self-awareness and insights by assessing how previous experiences have influenced current and ongoing behaviors.
Relational Therapy: In this therapy modality, healthy relationships are seen as central to
emotional wellbeing. By emphasizing our relationships with ourselves and those close to us, relational theory helps build self-esteem and the power of interconnectedness.
