David Amarel received his PhD in Clinical Psychology from NYU in 2002, and a Masters in Fine Arts from Rutgers University in 1985.
David has a strong interest in narrative, especially the personality factors and psychological needs that impact how the story is told. As a specialist in couples therapy, David spends the majority of his professional life observing, analyzing, and intervening with interpersonal processes. Even at the most irrational moments, there is a logic to interpersonal dynamics. Psychodynamic and interpersonal insight helps the writer to create characters that behave authentically, that we can recognize.
David is also a columnist at Gazillion Voices magazine.
