Dr. David Gold completed his PhD in clinical psychology at York University, where he trained in client-centred and emotion-focused therapy approaches. He completed his internship in medical psychology at Duke University Medical Center, providing group and individual cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to individuals with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and mood difficulties. As a clinical associate at the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, Dr. Gold led both group and individual cognitive behavioural therapy interventions for adults with spinal cord injury and medical illness. He later completed a clinical neuropsychology postdoctoral fellowship at Saint Louis University and a research fellowship at Washington University in St. Louis, focusing on memory changes associated with normal and pathological aging.
Dr. Gold has been invited to speak about his clinical and research interests in memory and aging most recently as an invited speaker at the American Psychiatric Association Annual Meeting, at gatherings throughout the Toronto community, and in the US as a clinical consultant for the American Association of Retired Professionals and the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center. Dr. Gold’s research has been published in high-impact journals such as JINS, Neuropsychology, and the Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology as well as in invited reviews and encyclopedia entries.
In addition to his practice at CBT Associates, Dr. Gold works as a psychologist at Toronto Western Hospital. He provides tailored interventions that integrate CBT techniques with other approaches (e.g., mindfulness or experiential therapy) for adults and seniors with adjustment difficulties (such as medical illness, relationship changes, life transitions), mood and anxiety disorders, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and performance anxiety. He is licensed with the College of Psychologists of Ontario in clinical psychology and neuropsychology. Most recently Dr. Gold has been appointed to the University of Toronto Department of Psychiatry as an Assistant Professor.
