Beginning in 2021, Dr. Hall has served as the founding Dean of the Negev Institute, a non-profit organization that works to empower Churches and Christian communities through trainings and other resources to address felt needs around social and behavioral health topics.

David received his B.A. in History from Middle Tennessee State University, his M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy from Richmont Graduate University, and his Doctorate in Psychology (PsyD) from California Southern University. After beginning his clinical career in Atlanta, David moved back home to Knoxville where he and his wife, Brandy, both joined the therapy staff of Ebenezer Counseling Services in 2008. At the end of 2015, David launched Haven in the hopes of offering more services to the Knoxville community.
On a personal note, David enjoys travel, the mountains, podcasts, old movies, good reads, conversations about most anything, and sometimes just being lazy with his wife, family, and friends. David is also a writer who loves to see how art and story show the hand and mind of the Creator and interwoven narratives of peoples' lives. David has been married to fellow-therapist and Haven's co-owner, Brandy, since 2008.
