Dr. David Le is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and clinical supervisor at The Family Institute at Northwestern University. He has worked in a variety of settings including university counseling centers, community mental health centers, retirement communities and at a local hospital. Prior to arriving at The Family Institute, he was Clinical Coordinator of a university dual-diagnosis intensive outpatient program (IOP) at Lakeshore Center for Behavioral Health at Chicago Lakeshore Hospital. Dr. Le was previously affiliated with Northwestern University, completing his APA-Accredited doctoral internship at Counseling and Psychological Services (NU CAPS).

Dr. Le’s therapeutic approach is integrative and draws from various CBT techniques including DBT, ACT and mindfulness-based approaches, relational psychodynamic and interpersonal process all within a multicultural framework. He works collaboratively with his clients, continually sets goals, provides feedback and challenges each other in a supportive space. Dr. Le works with individuals ages 15 and up, from all walks of life. He has a passion for working with emerging adults, individually or with their families. He has many years of experience helping students (traditional and nontraditional) navigate the complexities of university and college systems — pre, post, during or while on a leave of absence.

In practice, Dr. Le strives to create a safe, non-judgmental, trusting and comfortable space for clients to explore their feelings, thoughts and behaviors. He believes that past experiences and relationships shape how one views and engages with the world today, and helps clients achieve insights about the origins of their symptoms. To achieve a deeper understanding of oneself, he also believes in providing clients with concrete coping strategies to help ease various emotional difficulties that may cloud how clients navigate life in the everyday and future.
