David Stevens, PhD

I am interested in the pragmatic application of psychoanalytic ideas to the treatment of children, adolescents, and adults.  Although about two thirds of my practice is devoted to conducting psychoanalysis with adults, I also very much enjoying doing psychotherapy and clinical consultations.  In addition I have always been actively engaged in the teaching of psychotherapy to interns and residents and in the teaching of psychoanalysis to analytic candidates at the Denver Institute for Psychoanalysis.
