Dr. David Wilkins


About me

I am a clinical psychologist licensed in Tennessee with over 25 years of professional experience. I am committed to helping my clients lead fuller, more satisfying lives by examining and restructuring the habits of mind and behavior that contribute to their distress. Emotional distress comes in many different forms, but for only a few basic reasons. I use proven cognitive-behavioral approaches to help my clients tackle those common causes of their misery. With all due respect to Tolstoy, unhappy people are all alike; every happy person is happy in his or her own way. Indeed, there are a thousand paths to happiness, but in the dark forest of despair, not one is revealed. I'd be honored to help you find your unique path out into the light.

Written on Dec 05, 2022 after therapy with David for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and intimacy-related issues

The work I've done with Dr. Dave has been truly the most productive I've ever accomplished. He is very preceptive and gets right to the heart of things. He is accepting and reassuring and will meet you where you are. His grasp and application of CBT is enormously valuable. I highly recommend Dr. Dave.

Thank you for the alternative therapy. In person sessions aren't for me and this method has been a lifesaver. Thank you for listening and not just talking.

Dr. Wilkins has definitely helped me to realize some things in my life that I was having trouble grasping he has been a good guy to work with so far
