Dr. Daniel McBride is a licensed clinical psychologist who has nearly 15 years of experience treating anxiety, OCD, and a variety of related conditions. Daniel enjoys working with children, teenagers, adults, and families, and he has a particular interest in helping to improve communication and understanding within his clients’ relationships and family systems; he believes that this is an effective complement to more traditional treatment goals. He is passionate about helping people lead more fulfilling and meaningful lives that are driven by the values that are important to them. He believes that growth in therapy occurs when we are present, mindful, and genuine, and he strives to create an atmosphere of respect and collaboration in which this kind of work can happen more easily. Daniel uses humor as a tool to encourage understanding of how difficulties and problems develop so that he can work together with clients to find creative solutions that address the concerns that are most important to them.
Daniel received his bachelor’s degree from Western Kentucky University and his master’s and doctoral degrees from Southern Illinois University – Carbondale. He completed his predoctoral internship at the St. Louis Psychology Internship Consortium, and he has been working primarily in private practice settings since 2014. His work is informed by a broad range of approaches, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), attachment theory, narrative therapy, and family systems work. Prior to moving to Nashville, Daniel taught undergraduate and graduate classes for three years at his alma mater, Western Kentucky University. He also started a private practice in Bowling Green, Kentucky that he maintained for almost five years until he moved to Nashville.
In his free time, Daniel enjoys spending time with his family, watching and playing sports, learning about the Enneagram, playing piano, and listening to his favorite comedy specials for the umpteenth time.
