NYC Counseling: David Freilicher, Therapist

David Freilicher, MSW-I

David is a  lifelong learner. He earned a bachelor’s and a master’s degree with the highest honors from the University of Pennsylvania, followed by an MBA and MPH from Columbia University. Several decades and careers later he pursued his fourth graduate degree in clinical social work. David’s life has been a series of professional reinventions: a hospital administrator, managing director of New York City’s largest advertising agency, an internet entrepreneur, and now a therapist. These careers and their challenges are the foundation of David’s problem-solving approach. He knows how important it is to find meaning and fulfillment in each stage of life. He embraces diversity and challenges conventional norms.

David understands  the importance of the therapeutic journey, for his clients and for himself. His life experience helps inform his work with clients going through marriage and remarriage, divorce, co-parenting, and life transitions. While disciplined in his approach, he explores new modalities and embraces the potential of short-term counseling for those who seek it.

Therapeutic Approach

David believes that therapy is an invaluable tool for anyone seeking a more fully realized life. In unparalleled ways, it helps resolve weaknesses and leverage strengths for everyone, even those who seem to be the most fortunate. He combines psychoanalytic, DBT, and CBT techniques to help clients on this path to self-discovery. He is particularly adept at working with clients seeking coaching or wanting to accomplish a specific goal in a short-term therapeutic mode.

David’s background in business provides him with a unique  skill set. He helps people establish and achieve goals related to meaning, focus, insight, and coping. Through their work, clients realize their capacity to move forward in ways that they might not have imagined before. He is deeply caring, warm, wise, and straightforward.
