Dr. David Schnarch is a licensed clinical psychologist, Board Certified in Couple and Family Psychology (ABBP), and recipient of the 2013 Award for Distinguished Contributions to Independent Practice from the American Psychological Association.

David is a long-time Clinical Member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy and recipient of the 2011 AAMFT Award for Distinguished Contributions to Marriage and Family Therapy.

David is also certified as a Sex Therapist (Diplomat status) by the American Association for Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists. He served on the AASECT Board of Directors and chaired professional education for eight years. He received the first AASECT Professional Standard of Excellence Award in 1994.

David's books for the general public—"Passionate Marriage" (1997), "Resurrecting Sex" (2002), and "Intimacy & Desire" (2009) have been published in seven languages and become international best-sellers.

David's latest book, "Brain Talk" (2018), explores the hidden world of interpersonal neurobiology via mind mapping (the brain's innate ability to make mental maps of other people's minds). "Brain Talk" gives the general public and mental health professionals access to Crucible® Neurobiological Therapy, developed through fifteen years of clinical research with highly troubled clients.

Over the last 30 years, David has a long-standing history of innovating novel approaches to psychotherapy. He is the founder of Crucible® Therapy, the first integrated marital and sexual therapy based on interpersonal differentiation. In 1991, he wrote Constructing The Sexual Crucible: An Integration of Sexual and Marital Therapy, still used as a primary textbook in graduate training programs.

David is Co-Director of the Crucible Institute of Evergreen, Colorado. David conducts training workshops for therapists and programs for the public all around the world. For information, visit www.Crucible4Points.com or contact them at Service@CrucibleInstitute.com.
