Dallas, TX 75240

What types of services do you offer? What issues do you specify treatment for?

Family First Counseling provides counseling to children, adolescents, and adults. Specifically, counseling at our office addresses relationship issues, coping with life transitions such as grief, divorce, going to college, etc., anxiety disorders, anger management, parenting, behavioral problems, and depression.

In addition, counseling supervision and consultation is offered to other professional counselors and counseling interns.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practices?

Modalities include play therapy, sand tray therapy, activity therapy, talk therapy, family counseling, and couples counseling.

When should one seek treatment?

When to seek treatment is a personal choice and varies greatly.  I recommend seeking treatment when either you feel that you are not getting the support you need with your current support system OR if your symptoms (anxiety, depression, anger outbursts, etc.) are so severe that they are effecting your functioning in relationships, your work, or your self-care.

What relationships exist between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?

I feel that often substance abuse begins as a way of self-medicating an existing mental illness.  Therefore, typically where there is substance abuse there are mental health needs. Counseling is provided to clients with mental health needs and those with substance abuse problems are recommended to attend counseling in conjunction with a 12-step program.

Dallas, TX 75218

What types of services do you offer? What issues do you specify treatment for?

The most common issues I see are caused by basic life transitions. Transitions occur with birth and death, marriage and divorce, job changes and health issues. Sometimes life changes faster than we can, or it changes in ways we are not ready for. My sessions provide a calm structure to consider the changes that are occurring. We all tend to make better decisions when we are most aware of all the issues and options we are facing.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?

I lean towards a cognitive-behavior structure. This means looking at a person’s beliefs that are generating their emotional reactions and making sure the beliefs are accurate and still valid.  This approach provides some relief quickly, as well as, continued change over time. Clients want to leave the office from that first visit with hope and new perspectives that benefit them from that day on.

When should one seek treatment?

Often a person makes their first appointment at the urging of someone important to them. I think too many people want to believe they should go it alone. While we may not want to admit we need help we should imagine the relief that we are wanting. I encourage people not to wait until they are completely overwhelmed but to look for assistance as soon as they feel things are not going in a good direction for them.

What relationships exist between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?

I see so many people whose substance abuse began as a simple way to reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, or some other uncomfortable feeling. Often this self-medicating works and they are sold. However, this DIY (do-it-yourself) approach has it’s drawbacks. When a person’s tolerance for their preferred substance grows, their use gets completely out of hand. While the person is balancing short-term relief with the unpredictability of substance abuse the root of their discomfort remains untouched. I use the assumption that the substance abuse began as a sincere attempt to feel better. We just need to identify that original problem and look at healthier ways to give them the relief they need.

What types of services do you offer? What issues do you specify treatment for?

My practice provides psychotherapy and consultation services. I treat a wide variety of clients with numerous issues as I have been a psychotherapist for forty years. During that time I have treated people with relationship/marital/family issues, emotional issues (depression, anxiety and bipolar disorders), medically related issues ( chronic pain/illness and brain injuries ) and, over the past fifteen years, people suffering from severe trauma. With respect to my work with trauma patients, I see clients in my office and in a hospital setting. When a trauma client needs hospitalization, I admit them to an internationally recognized trauma unit housed in Timberlawn Psychiatric Hospital in Dallas.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practices?

I use a wide variety of psychotherapeutic modalities. Which ones I employ with a given client depend on the issues being addressed and the goals of the client. I have expertise in psychoanalytic, behavioral and experiential therapies. Hospital clients will also be exposed to art, music, anger management, group process and didactic therapies. Substance abuse programs are available for those in need as well.

When should one seek treatment?

Individuals should seek treatment if they have a known disorder which is becoming symptomatic ( eg. depression/anxiety is reappearing or addiction urges/behaviors are reoccuring). One might also seek therapy to prevent possible issues( premarital counseling) or to maximize personal growth or performance.

What relationships exist between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?

Substance abuse is often the result of an untreated, possibly undetected mental health issue. For some people, it is the consequence of an attempt at self medication. For others, drug use may be precipitated by social or cultural pressures and lead to mental health issues as continued use has damaging effects on one's brain chemistry, physical, psychological and social development. Many clients I see with trauma or other psychological issues also have substance abuse problems. Treatment of the whole person requires that we treat substance abuse as a part of the individual's unhealthy attempt to cope.

What types of services do you offer? What issues do you specify treatment for?

The Relationship Place of Dallas specializes in assisting people in all types of relationships, including the relationship you have with yourself. Services focus on a better understanding of the way we see ourselves, others, and interactions with others to meet the goals decided upon by the therapist and client in a therapeutic setting. The Relationship Place of Dallas is an outpatient non-emergency therapeutic clinic.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?

The therapy modalities utilized include: systemic family therapy, brief cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, and emotionally focused therapy. The emphasis and utilization of each model is based on client needs.

When should one seek treatment?

Couples and families often wait to seek out therapy until it is "really bad", but oftentimes families and couples can benefit from seeking therapy at the first inclination of something being wrong.  Oftentimes, I tell people to trust their intuition, that is, if something feels off, uncomfortable, or unsettling seeking help earlier rather than later can help the healing process occur more rapidly. By avoiding the potential for deeper, prolonged wounds clients can potentially achieve goals more effectively. Many times we peg "mental health" or "substance abuse" as an individual problem, but the ripple effect on family members and friends can be daunting. It is important for those that are close to the individual to understand their own journey, the journey of their loved one, and how these paths cross.  

What relationships exist between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?

Mental health and substance abuse oftentimes go hand in hand and do not affect just one person. Through a systemic approach to understanding of the process, step wise goals, and realistic outcomes; healing can occur. The role of The Relationship Place is to assist and support families, couples, and individuals with their goals through deeper levels of communication and problem solving. Many times we serve as a part of the transition plan as individuals are changing location (transition from a rehabilitation facility or hospital setting) or changing their life path.

What types of services do you offer? What issues do you specify treatment for?

I offer psychodynamic individual counseling for anxiety, depression, relationship problems, and parenting tips. I help adolescent girls and adult women increase their self worth, deepen their relationships, and reduce their struggles with anxiety disorders, grief and depression.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?

Psychodynamic. I treat women by helping them identify the root causes of their emothional problems, and to implement solutions that will enhance their daily lives. I have worked with a number of women, both adolescent and adults, in overcoming a wide array of emotional issues. These issues cover a wide spectrum of mental and emotional pain, including grief, depression and anxiety disorders.

When should one seek treatment?

When daily functioning is impaired.

What relationships exist between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?

The alcoholics and other addicts recovering that I have seen have had a lot of family trauma, early childhood ego deficits, and trouble establishing a trusting relationship with me, of course understandable. I generally advise and inquire about their AA commitment, I believe in that program, and I know good therapy can't happen unless the patient is sober, or getting sober. I have been more concrete if I need to be. I meet the patient where they are mentally.

I always felt like I could work on the anxiety, depression and let them go to AA for all it has to offer. Mental health and substance abuse go together because of the need to find peace, comfort, and temporary numbing of problems.

What types of services do you offer? What issues do you specify treatment for?

Our Child Therapy Services includes:

Play therapy: which is a form of therapy tailored to address and assist children's needs in a way that feels most natural and safe to them…..play!!!  The BPBC team has been trained in a variety of different play therapy techniques in order to best work with a multitude of differing issues that children might face.  The BPBC play therapist works to create a warm and inviting atmosphere where the child feels safe and supported in order to share, connect, and express their feelings to the therapist. Some of the issues:

  • Include developmental issues and arenas such as depression, mood, anxiety and behavior problems, and issues stemming from the environment, such as divorce, re-marriage, adoption, school and traumatic events.
  • Also includes parenting the challenging child, whether that be the child with sensory problems, or the behavior/emotional issues in children.
  • Includes counseling with children diagnosed with unique differences including ADHD, Asperger's Disorder, Learning Disorders or Differences.
  • Can be about problems relating to an unexpected event. This can be the death of a family member, a traumatic experience, or any event that has had an emotional impact.
  • Many times may be about behavior issues, which may include making up a unique behavior plan for your child to motivate him or her in the areas of concern. Points are awarded along with prizes to help encourage your child in their progress towards success.

Our Services for Older kids and Pre-Teens Include:

Activity Therapy: This is a form of counseling that works well for older kids and pre-adolescents.  Through a variety of means from expressive art techniques to playing pool or ping pong, or through listening to your child as he or she makes cookies, the therapist works to build rapport with slightly older children who may no longer be appropriate for play therapy - but are not yet ready for adult talk therapy.  Activity therapy provides a developmentally appropriate way to express thoughts and feelings without feeling the pressure or anxieties that might be associated with talk therapy.

Of course, many kids can sit and talk at this age, and with those who can, we also work with them whether with activities or without - to help them verbally process their outer and inner experiences in a caring, friendly environment.

Teen Counseling:

  • This includes developmental issues and also areas such as depression, mood, anxiety and behavior problems, and issues stemming from the environment, such as divorce, re-marriage, school, adoption, and traumatic events.
  • This also includes parenting the challenging teenager, whether that be the teenager with sensory problems, or the behavior/emotional issues in teens.
  • Counseling with teenagers diagnosed with unique differences including ADHD, Asperger's Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Learning Disorders or Differences.
  • Counseling with regard to problems relating to an unexpected event. This can be the death of a family member, a traumatic experience, or any event that has had an emotional impact.
  • Counseling in terms of behavior issues, including making a unique family contract for your teenager to help motivate him or her in the areas of concern.
  • We consult with schools and school districts, including going to meetings at schools for 504 meetings or ARD meetings to secure the best help possible.
  • Of course, even with teens, we may not always sit... but a game of ping pong or pool can help establish rapport building, that can encourage the teen to feel positive related to speaking about the issues and concerns they are dealing with.

Other Counseling Work we Offer:

Individual Adult Therapy:  Will be tailored to fit the unique needs and situation of each client. Many therapists at BPBC have been trained to work with adults with a variety of different presenting concerns.  

Filial therapy training/Child Parent Relationship Training:  This is a type of therapy that involves both the parent and the child.  A therapist will work individually or in a group setting with parents to teach parents some of the crucial skills that are utilized in a therapeutic setting.

Family Counseling Services: This type of therapy can be done in a variety of ways.  Each family is different and we at BPBC understand this.  There are no two family dynamics that are exactly alike and we will work to find a way to make family therapy the most beneficial for your family.  Depending on the age ranges of family members and developmental differences of particular family members the BPBC therapist will try to create a unique and individualized plan to incorporate all members of the family in a way that is most helpful and meaningful to them.

Marriage/Couples Counseling Services: This type of therapy is intended for persons who are married or in partnered relationships that may need outside assistance and therapeutic insight into the current state of the relationship.  Our marriage and couples therapists will work to build rapport with each person and provide a safe environment in which to work on the relationship.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?

Play therapy, activity therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy. We also utilize testing, ADHD coaching, academic help, and speech and language therapies.

When should one seek treatment?

One could consider seeking treatment when life gets to a point of distress and constant stress.

What relationships exist between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?

We work alongside LCDC’s to provide help for those suffering with substance abuse. We are a facility that has worked with the children and teens of adults suffering with substance abuse, as well as working with the families of those suffering with substance abuse.

What relationships exist between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?

After in-patient rehab, I can offer assistance with relapse prevention. The problem with substances is that they dull the emotional pain (of course, that is what they are suppose to do!). It is better to recognize that one is in pain and seek cog/beh remedies to avoid negative behavioral patterns that produce the pain.

I also see couples and individuals of all types for relationship counseling, premarital counseling, marital counseling, and divorce recovery. Additionally, I conduct groups for weight loss and self esteem as well as psychological evaluations for individuals preparing to undergo bariatric surgery. Follow up counseling is vital for these individuals as well to deal with the emotional and relational ramifications of obesity and rapid weight loss.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practices?

The counseling modalities I use are cognitive behavioral counseling, Gestalt therapy, person-centered therapy, transactional analysis, family systems therapy, and anything else that will work for the client!

When should one seek treatment?

I believe individuals should seek treatment as soon as they discover that the tools they are currently using to cope with life are no longer working for them. It is one of my greatest sadnesses  to see people and couples come into my office after and during enduring difficult times for entirely too long. They come in with such despair that repair is a tremendous challenge.

What relationships exist between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?

I believe that substance abuse and mental health are completely interrelated. I also believe that substance abuse can be seen as an addiction of any type. Be it drugs, alcohol, food, spending, sex, relationships and friendships, and anything else in life that we can begin to abuse as a way to cope with what we are truly feeling.

What types of services do you offer? What issues do you specify treatment for?

I offer counseling services for adolescents and adults struggling with anxiety, trauma, PTSD, depression, relationships, or career concerns. I offer counseling services face to face, thru Skype or by phone.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?

I use cognitive behavioral therapy. For PTSD I use prolonged exposure therapy.

When should one seek treatment?

Usually a person should seek treatment as soon as they notice their level of functioning decrease. Meaning the coping skills a person was using no longer work and the symptoms of anxiety, depression, or trauma are increasing.

A person may also want to seek treatment when they need guidance or an outside opinion on a difficult life decision. Sometimes a friend or family member will encourage an individual to seek counseling.

Normally, a person will seek treatment when they are ready for change.

The most important thing is that counseling should be seen as a healthy outlet to provide guidance, direction, education, and hope to that individual in their time of need.  

What relationships exist between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?

Often times there is a dual relationship between mental health and substance abuse. Substance abuse is often used as an unhealthy coping skill. With the clients I work with, I have seen their primary issue as anxiety, depression, or trauma and they use alcohol or marijuana as an escape or coping mechanism to numb the hurt and pain.

I'm not a LCDC and don't have a specialty in treating addiction so if this is the primary and only reason for counseling then I will refer the client to another counselor who offers this type of treatment. If the individual's primary reason for counseling is anxiety, trauma, depression, etc but they also suffer from substance abuse then I will work with the client to treat their primary concern but also focus on the substance abuse and teach healthier coping skills. An assessment needs to be done with anyone abusing substances to determine their level of care. If its outside my scope of practice then I will always refer the client to another counselor or encourage someone to go into inpatient or outpatient treatment.

What types of services to you offer? 

Recovery coaching for young women and girls contemplating or working toward long-term sobriety.

What issues do you specifically treat for?

First, coaching is not therapy or treatment. Coaching is a supportive and collaborative partnership designed to move the client positively forward toward immediate and long-term goals. It’s strength-based and solution focused.  

What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?

My approach is informed by acceptance and commitment therapy, rational emotive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, self-management and recovery training, and self-determination theory.  The principles of each are adapted to the coaching approach. I am not a psychotherapist. 

When should one seek treatment?

Clients may seek a recovery coach at any point in the recovery process.  A coach may serve as the initial support for one contemplating positive change (still using), a member of the support team for one in treatment (middle recovery), and ongoing outpatient support for one returning home from inpatient treatment (long-term sobriety). Coaching is present and future focused.  The coach helps the client face current challenges by educating the client in self-determined action, co-creating tailored solutions, and supporting through positive, committed action.

Why should someone choose to come to your practice?

I offer a science-based, self-determined approach to recovery.  I believe whole-heartedly in owning your story, absolute open honesty, and staying true to self.  I processed through my own recovery at 17 after five years of hard substance abuse.   I have since accomplished success in life, love, education, and career that I never believed possible during those years of abuse.  My young clients enjoy working with me because I’m pretty cool (have you seen me?!). More importantly, I can relate to where they are, accept them as they are, and know they can be successful through positive transformation. Not simply because I believe in them, which I absolutely do, but because we have plenty of hard science to inform and guide us through this journey.

What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse?

When mental health issues and substance abuse issues are co-occurring the process through recovery becomes more difficult.  Each issue tends to make the other worse and the road to sobriety requires a team effort including a mental health provider and treatment team.  

What services do you provide for someone with either and/or both?

Recovery coaching is open to those with co-occurring disorders.  This is an instance where I, as the recovery coach, would function as part of the treatment team.

What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?

Substance abuse is a mental health issue. Substance abuse often causes problems in lives (in relationships, jobs, etc.) and problems in lives often make substances more appealing. I work with clients on identifying their hurt and stressors and then developing alternative ways to cope. At the same time, I work with them on healing from the pain and improving their lives and relationships.

What types of services do you offer? What issues do you specify treatment for?

I like to say that I help people take their power back. This usually comes in the form of helping teens or adults take charge of their anxiety or helping survivors of sexual assault find their new normal.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?

I help people understand their situation better and change their actions to better their life (Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy). In counseling, we will also talk about finding out who you are supposed to be (Systems/Family Systems Theory) and making changes right away so you feel better more quickly (Solutions-Focused Brief Therapy).

When should one seek treatment?

The best time to seek counseling is when you are ready to change your life and want to get serious about doing so. I always tell my clients I will do absolutely everything I can to find the right solution for you, what I can never do, though, is give you the desire to change. If you have that, you have all you need to be successful in counseling.  

What relationships exist between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?

In my areas of specialty, I often encounter people trying to dull the pain with alcohol and drug use. It makes sense for people to want to relax and forget their pain, especially trauma survivors or people with chronic anxiety. But it only works for a little while. Soon, you begin to realize the problems are still there when the effect fades away. I have worked with many of my clients to help them replace their dependence on substances with healthier and longer-lasting solutions.

What types of services do you offer?

I am a licensed clinical social worker, and I work with individuals, couples, families and groups in a comfortable office in far north Dallas. I also provide supervision for fellow social workers who are fulfilling requirements to become independent practitioners.

What issues do you specify treatment for?

I predominantly work with adults and families who are dealing with depression, anxiety, Bipolar disorder, chemical dependency, grief, loss, life transitions, self esteem issues, and communication, to name a few.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?

I utilize a variety of theories: psychodynamic, humanistic, rogerian, gestalt, solution focused, cognitive behavioral, stress management, bioenergetic, mindfulness, emotional regulation, and communication. Talking together, working together, to identify what actions to take is a large part of the time I spend with people. I share what I know about theories to improve people’s understandings of themselves and others. If someone needs support between sessions, I am available by email or text. I also Skype to have sessions if needed. The work I do with someone is only part of the process. If people don’t do things differently between sessions, a person won’t improve.

When should one seek treatment?

There are so many different levels of care for all different levels of need. If someone is unhappy with how their life is going, individual therapy once a week may be all that person needs to start going in a better direction. If someone is in danger of hurting themselves or someone else, our metroplex has many sources of excellent inpatient treatment. If someone can’t stop drinking or using drugs, the Dallas area also has excellent detoxification and residential treatment. If a couple is disconnected from each other, marital therapy could really help. Sometimes when a child becomes a teenager, the whole family struggles. Family therapy can be very effective for that. Support groups and group therapy can help differently than individual therapy, and sometimes people will do a combination of all types of treatment to help them get better. Ultimately, if someone wants their life to improve and they don’t know what direction to take, counseling can help!

Why should someone choose to come to your practice?

I have worked in the mental health field since 1987. I personally know the value of therapy, and I’m passionate about the benefits of counseling. I do my best to work with people financially so they can get the support they want and need. I take care of every aspect of my business: I’m the only person who answers my phone, I set my schedule, I work with all insurance companies, identifying benefits and filing claims. I try to be accessible and assist in any way that I can therapeutically. My office is in a good location that’s easy to get to. I try to practice what I preach. I have been told numerous times that I have helped, and I have been privileged to see people grow and change as we’ve worked together.

What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?

Alcohol and drugs do a temporarily good job of erasing thoughts and feelings, and then compound the problem when someone is not using. If a person is depressed or anxious and they drink or use a drug, physiologically and psychologically they learn this benefit and ignore the destruction. Some people self medicate with alcohol or drugs to mitigate symptoms of depression, anxiety and Bipolar disorder. When we feel helpless and hopeless, we can turn to the bottle to cope or run from our problems. When I work with someone dealing with both mental health and substance abuse issues, sobriety is the place I prefer to start. When someone starts to work on the stored up feelings, if they don’t have a strong recovery program, they will return to using to cope with the thoughts and feelings. Thus, I believe in the 12 step programs, and I also know they don’t work for everyone. I’m uncomfortable with a harsh approach to treating drugs and alcohol, and don’t tend to be authoritative about sobriety. I believe the whole family is affected by the behavior of the person who uses, and I would recommend that all members get help. If someone needs medication, I have many psychiatrists that I work in conjunction with to assist in the recovery process. If a person needs to detoxify safely from chemicals or need the structure of residential treatment, I like to assist and recommend resources for that.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?

When should one seek treatment?

Most people experience stressors and problems. Yet, if one feels emotionally and physically challenged to address problems, they should seek wellness evaluation and treatment. Clients should seek treatment, when they find themselves feeling emotions that are not in line with how they want to feel. That is without taking illicit drugs or alcohol to avoid these uncomfortable feelings. Many think that taking illicit drugs or drinking alcohol helps one to feel better when in difficult situations. However, when another similar problematic situation arises, this less healthy way of feeling better becomes increasingly desired. Treatment can help you get to the source and add healthier tools to your coping toolbox.

Why should someone choose to come to your practice?

Clients should come to my practice to learn self-counseling techniques to take charge of his/her health and wellness. My goal is to quickly develop the clients self-counseling skills and practice of using wellness tools. I can help children, teens, adults and seniors better manage health problems, insomnia, depression, anxiety, and improve functioning in school, home, work, and social situations. I guide my clients to use research-informed techniques that are shown effective in reaching health and wellness goals.

What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?

My practice guides clients to using self-counseling skills to address health problems, including substance use and other problematic behaviors, symptoms that impede functioning. I believe in exploring in the beginning, what coping skills one currently uses, both constructive and less constructive. Often the less constructive coping skills, such as substance use, are used to deal with underlying mental health symptoms. Thus, my approach is to address the clients’ needs related to mental health and substance abuse at the same time. The road toward mental health and substance use recovery is driven by working with the client and collaborating with his/her medical providers, to peel away the layers while building on newly acquired skills.
