About Dave Hall

Dr. Dave has experience in medicine, and in faith.

David first trained as a counselor in drug and alcohol rehab.  He went on to practice and to teach emergency medicine, until heart problems prompted him to retire early.  Now he returns to his first love, counseling.  He seeks to help people as their souls heal from life circumstances and from painful emotions.

Clinical Approach

Dr. Hall has studied the art and science of the human heart, not the muscle that pumps blood, but the mind and soul that struggle with life.  He helps people to make sense of challenges, discover meaning, and find peace within.  He combines cognitive-behavioral and analytic techniques, using evidence-based methods from the two great traditions of psychology.  Dr. Hall also integrates faith as an important component of care.  He is available for counseling, group work, and for speaking on these topics. His gentle and compassionate style promotes comfort and healing.
