About David

Once you have decided that you cannot take this journey on your own, the next decision to make is to find a therapist that you can trust to help you on your adventure. We will work together to uncover the roadblocks that have been preventing you from reaching what you feel is your true inner peace.

My basic therapeutic approach is solution-focused therapy. I believe that our conflict arises from how we are interacting with our environment.  I will assist you to look at your world from a holistic perspective, allowing you a feeling of looking inside your own world from the outside to get a different perspective of how approach situations.


During a therapy session I will incorporate various psychological approaches varying from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Gestalt, Client Centered, Visualization, and Meditation. I am also trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)

David Z. Pfeffer is a graduate of Long Island University/C.W. Post Campus where he attained a degree in Psychology, and Florida Atlantic University, completing his Masters of Social Work with a concentration in Elder Social Work and Family Care. David is an Alumni of the Phi Alpha Social Work Honor Society. 

I have worked in the Florida Social Service Field for the past 6 years.  During this time I have worked at Children's home society as a Family Intervention Counselor with families who were in need of case management and supportive counseling

services.  In addition I have worked at Children's Home Society as the Intake Coordinator for three of Broward County's in home counseling programs.

Currently in addition to serving counseling I work part time with a home health agency in Palm Beach County assisting homebound seniors, to be linked with community resources and short term counseling.
