Dr. Dave Beach serves as Mental Health Director to LifeGR®. Dr. Beach brings over 40 years of professional experience to the organization.
In this position Dr. Beach develops, plans, supervises, and executes mental health services to improve the lives of our American Heroes and their families.
“LifeGR® emerged out of the painful inadequacies of our system of care for veterans and first responders. As a result, we dedicate our efforts and our resources to providing choices for more compassionate care not only to veterans and first responders but also to their families. Being a part of this effort to stand in the gap has become one of the most fulfilling things I have ever done.”
Prior to joining LifeGR’s® leadership team, Dr. Beach owned and operated his private practice with concentration in grief and marriage. As an award-winning instructor, he writes and taught college-level courses in psychopathology, grief and loss, social science research, and statistics. He completed a doctorate at George Fox University in spiritual formation and leadership. His award-winning dissertation provides the basis for Post Traumatic Stress Growth and Reconstruction and represents the best of several recent approaches to trauma.
Dr. Beach is happily married with one daughter.
