David Harb, M.MFT
Hi. I’m David, and the first thing you should know about me is that I’m passionate about psychology and my work as a therapist. I love helping people gain insight into their hearts and minds, improve relationships with family and friends, and ultimately discover the best versions of themselves.
When we meet you’ll experience someone who is curious about you, someone who is genuinely interested in helping you confront the problems in your life as you make your way towards lasting personal change. You’ll notice I’m not one of those “nod and repeat” type of therapists. Our sessions will feel like a conversation. Together we will explore your thoughts and feelings, and I’ll offer you a fresh perspective through empirically supported interventions informed by the latest psychological research. We will identify your potential for growth, and we will challenge the beliefs and behaviors that keep you from experiencing happiness, harmony, and health.

On my way to becoming a therapist, I worked as a writer and founded a successful production company in Los Angeles, and my clinical approach is informed by my executive experience and my background in the creative arts.
As a clinician, I have worked in both non-profit and private practice settings where I've received extensive training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, which means I don’t shy away from the tough cases.
My areas of special focus include relationship stressors unique to the entertainment industry, creative blocks and barriers to artistic inspiration, non-traditional relationships, spiritual and existential distress, sex therapy, mood and personality disorders, the parenting of defiant adolescents, conflict management for couples and partnerships, as well as boutique mediation and consulting services for divorce and partnership dissolution.
