Professional statement

David Lane is a clinical psychologist, licensed in New York and Massachusetts, committed to helping adults who feel overwhelmed by stress and anxiety or stuck in negative feelings, substance misuse or compulsive behavior, to get unstuck and to cultivate the hope and drive necessary to build a more fulfilling life.

David's approach is active, attuned, compassionate and experiential, helping clients to connect with genuine sources of meaning and motivation and developing new perspectives and ways of responding to distressing or discouraging thoughts and feelings. David been trained in a number of therapeutic modalities and strives to be nimble and flexible in finding the most helpful approach for each client. That said, he draws heavily from the evidence-based orientations, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

Prior to transitioning to private practice, from 2014 to 2023, David helped establish and then served as clinical director of CMC:Berkshires, a nationally respected residential treatment program specializing in evidence-based treatment for substance use disorders and co-occurring issues. Prior to that, David worked for the Center for Motivation and Change (CMC) from 2006 - 2013, first as a staff psychologist, and then as director of CMC's outpatient office in Westchester, NY. David was also a past-president of the executive committee for the New York State Psychological Association's Division on Addictions.

David is based in Massachusetts and sees clients residing in New York and Massachusetts via telehealth. He also has a part-time office in Great Barrington, MA where he sees clients in person.
