About Dan Quinn, Psy.D.

More about me at www.DanQuinn.Info

In addition to my private practice, I supervise the clinical work of doctoral students and teach at The Wright Institute in Berkeley, California. I’ve spent many years studying cognitive-behavioral, relational psychoanalytic, and a number of different humanistic approaches, and I specialize in anxiety, depression and relationship difficulties and building relationships that thrive.

I’ve worked in a number of settings over the years. The psychological breakthroughs of the 60s and 70s were formative for me, when a myriad of approaches to personal growth were explored. My work has been deeply informed by the men’s movement of the 80s and 90s, and I have a special interest in helping men develop self-awareness and communication skills.

I’ve provided therapy in outpatient clinics, a drug treatment program, a university counseling center and an inner city school. I now very happily devote my time to my private therapy practice, corporate consulting in the areas of leadership development and teambuilding, and my highly satisfying work with my students.

I am also interested in research: our team is currently investigating factors which make couples therapy more accessible for men. Earlier research was devoted to an interview study of beneficial therapist spontaneity; I consider spontaneous, authentic relationships to be the heart of the psychotherapy and coaching process.

Before becoming a psychologist and Certified Positive Psychology Coach, I worked for twenty years in the corporate arena: I was the CEO of a technology consulting firm, consultant to leaders in a number of different business environments, including healthcare, manufacturing, software development and telecommunications.

While my office is in Berkeley, I live in San Francisco with my wife of 29 years, and, when she’s in town, our 24-year-old daughter.

    Have you tried TherapyNotes.com or TherapyAppointment.com?
