Daniel Wile Ph.D.


Dr. Wile received his B.A. from the University of Chicago and his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley. He has been doing couple therapy for 30 years in Oakland, California, has taught in several graduate programs in the San Francisco Bay Area, gives workshops in couple therapy throughout the country and internationally, and has written three books and many articles on couple relationships and couple therapy. Dr. Wile developed an approach to couple therapy, collaborative couple therapy, in which he takes the couple’s immediate concern and tries to turn it into an intimate conversation. At times he speaks for one or both partners, showing them what it would sound like if they were having an intimate conversation rather than the fight they are having or being disengaged.
