Wachtel David S Ph.D. Wachtel David S Ph.D. : Psychotherapy, Houston, TX

What We Do
I have been in private practice providing psychotherapy treatment, clinical consultations, and assessment services since 1981, and have worked as a Forensic Psychologist since 1989.

I received my Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Rutgers College and my Master's and Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from The University of Georgia. I completed a pre-doctoral internship at Baylor College of Medicine here in Houston, and a 2-year NIMH Postdoctoral Fellowship in Clinical Child Psychology at the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis.

Unlike many other Houston psychologists, I have several areas of specialization. These are described in greater detail in other sections of my website (www.drdavidwachtel.net).

The clinical part of my practice involves psychoanalytic (also called psychodynamic) psychotherapy treatment with individuals, couples and families. I have treated a broad range of emotional, relationship, educational/job-based problems, and psychological difficulties associated with medical conditions (such as ADHD, learning disabilities, lupus, lymphodema and cancer). I also provide clinical consultations and personality evaluations. Visit my Clinical Services page to learn more about the approach of my psychotherapy treatment as well as my clinical consultation and evaluation services.

My second major area of practice is as a Forensic Psychologist. I consult on and conduct evaluations in civil and criminal cases. These include Child Custody Evaluations (CCEs); evaluations and treatment of Parental Alienation; evaluations of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD); allegations of sexual abuse; allegations of sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace; and disability evaluations. I have also served as a Consulting Expert Witness in both civil and criminal cases.

I also direct The Center for Compulsive and Addictive Behavior. We offer comprehensive assessment and treatment for alcohol and drug abuse and dependence, sexual and pornography addiction, eating disorders, compulsive gambling, and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). You can learn more about The Center on my Addictions page.
