Prior to earning his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and starting his current therapy practice in Austin, Texas, David Zuniga earned his Master of Divinity degree from Harvard, which led to him becoming the first westerner to be ordained in the Taego Order (one of the two largest lineages of Zen Buddhism in South Korea), and the third Buddhist to become a licensed hospital/hospice chaplain in the United States. He also holds a Masters degree in literature. In his previous career, Dr. Zuniga worked as an interfaith chaplain in both pediatric and adult end-of-life care. As a Post-Doctoral Fellow, some of Dr. Zuniga’s clinical interests include mindfulness and spiritually integrative counseling, assisting clients with healthcare decision-making, grief, and wellness. Dr. Zuniga is also completing a book on Zen, mindfulness, and end-of-life care for Wisdom Publications.
