WHAT THERAPISTS IN HOUSTON HAVE TO SAY
Alan Schneider
Alan Schneider
Houston, TX 77057

What types of services do I offer?

I offer Individual, Marital, Family, and Group Psychotherapy.

What issues do I specify treatment for?

I treat: Identity issues, Family of origin issues, self sabotage, anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, communication problems, Anger, and Grief. I offer Pre-marital and marital counseling. I also offer Group Psychotherapy. I am not an addictions specialist.

What modalities do I use in my practice?

I am primarily a Here and Now therapist. I believe that it is important to understand and work on issues from an individuals history in a here and now context. I see myself as a psychoanalytically oriented Gestalt therapist. I use talk therapy with individuals, couples, and families. I use EMDR where it would benefit. I also provide group psychotherapy when it is appropriate.

When should one seek treatment?

I believe that a person should seek treatment when they experience their life as living them rather than them living their life. I also believe that when a person suffers from anxiety or depression, fears and avoidance, that they would benefit from treatment. When a relationship become problematic (communication breaks down and things seem to be out of control) often coming in to talk about the issues can help resolve the problems that might be creating them.

Why should someone choose to come to see me?

I am 63, happily married for 42+ years, father of two, and a Grandfather. I have older parents. I have been providing individual, marital, family, and group psychotherapy for almost 38 years in Houston, Texas. I love my work. I talk with individuals who are interested in working with me by phone first to decide if I am the correct therapist. No therapist is best for everyone. I work with people I believe I can help and I refer people to other therapists when i believe that they would be better served by doing so.

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

I believe that substance abuse is most often an attempt at self medication. The individual is trying to numb out, or control emotional experiences that are very upsetting to them. When people work on and resolve these issues, often they are able to stop abusing substances. I am not an expert in substance abuse. Depending on the circumstances, my clients may need to attend the appropriate 12 step groups while in treatment with me. I also make referral to psychiatrists when evaluation, and / or medication are needed.

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

Marriage and family counseling and therapy, individual counseling/therapy, couples counseling/therapy, coaching, family mediation, anger management, substance abuse, addiction and dual diagnosis counseling and intervention, and various support groups.

Interpersonal conflicts, marital conflicts/discord, relationship conflicts, substance abuse/addiction issues, dual diagnosis issues, psychopathology (mood problems, anxiety, fears), and others.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?

My approach to counseling is a combination of the systemic, collaborative and facilitative perspectives, which includes Solution-focused, Narrative, Collaborative, and Brief therapies. I also use Cognitive Behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and many other integrative and innovative approaches. I believe the family is a fully functioning system, all-inclusive, and part of the broader social context (community).

When should one seek treatment?

When internal discord or turmoil occurs - a sense that "something is just not right..."

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

Addiction is common in people with mental health problems, because this population tends to self-medicate generally thinking that the elusive "high" would induce calmness, thus reducing anxiety or fears.  Although substance abuse and mental health disorders like depression and  anxiety are closely linked, one does not directly cause the other. Unfortunately, substance abuse causes side effects, which in the long run worsens the very symptoms they initially were intended to numb or relieve.

According to reports published in  the Journal of the American Medical Association:

Roughly 50 percent of individuals with  severe mental disorders are affected by substance abuse; 37 percent of alcohol  abusers and 53 percent of drug abusers also have at least one serious mental illness; and of all people diagnosed as mentally  ill, 29 percent abuse either alcohol or drugs [Source: National Alliance on Mental Illness]

I believe an integrated approach, where both the substance abuse problem and the mental disorder are treated simultaneously is the best treatment.  I believe that a good chance of recovery is through integrated treatment whereby both, the substance abuse problem and the mental health problem are treated simultaneously. This means providing combined mental health and addiction treatment at the same time.

Houston, TX 77006

What types of services do you offer?

I offer psychotherapeutic and counseling services for adults, both individuals and couples.

What issues do you specify treatment for?

I am a Certified Sex Therapist, and my practice focuses on the treatment of sexual dysfunction, which primarily encompasses issues around sexual desire, arousal, orgasm, and sexual pain. I also offer counseling for sexual addiction/compulsivity, trauma, and family of origin issues.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?

I consider myself pragmatic in my approach, and collaborate with my clients to determine the best treatment plan for them. I draw from cognitive-behavioral therapy, family systems, and couples counseling. I use Pia Mellody’s approach to treating codependency, love addiction, and family of origin issues and Pat Carnes’ model for the treatment of sex addiction. I am an EMDR trained therapist, and use that quite frequently as well.

When should one seek treatment?

Ideally, an individual or couple should seek treatment as soon as they notice an issue and after an exam by their primary physician to rule out a physiologic origin of the problem. I often find that the longer a couple allows an issue to persist, the longer treatment takes.

Why should someone choose to come to your practice?

While the focus of my practice is on sexual issues, I consider myself a very well rounded therapist, knowledgeable about a variety of issues. I have experience in treating anxiety, self-esteem, trauma, life adjustment issues, and family of origin trauma. I am dedicated to working collaboratively with individuals and their partners to lead more fulfilling lives. I am passionate about what I do, and pride myself on my natural ability to make working through problems as comfortable as possible.

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

There is no doubt that abusing substances negatively impacts mental health and that people with mental health issues are more likely to have substance abuse problems. Usually when someone comes to my office and it is apparent that there are significant substance abuse problems, I will encourage them to seek specific counseling or join a program that focuses on that first. I am of the opinion that deeper issues cannot be resolved until active addictions are under control. I am very holistic in my approach and am a firm believer in utilizing a multidisciplinary team when necessary. I work closely with other mental health professionals, physicians, psychiatrists, and other health practitioners to better serve my clients and help them reach their full potential.

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

I offer Individual, Couples and Family Counseling.   with an emphasis on the treatment of Depressive Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Interpersonal/Relationship Issues, and Trauma recovery.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?

My specialty is cognitive behavioral psychology.

When should one seek treatment?

Everyone goes through challenging situations in life, and while you may have successfully navigated through other difficulties you've faced, there's nothing wrong with seeking out extra support when you need it. In fact, therapy is for people who have enough self-awareness to realize they need a helping hand, and that is something to be admired. You are taking responsibility by accepting where you're at in life and making a commitment to change the situation by seeking therapy. Therapy provides long-lasting benefits and support, giving you the tools you need to avoid triggers, re-direct damaging patterns, and overcome whatever challenges you face.

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 can often be used as a means to cope with a variety of mental health issues.  I also believe that substance abuse can contribute to the development or exacerbation of many mental health issues.  I believe the relationship is bilateral.  Its important to understand the dynamics between the two.   I use a mindfulness cognitive behavioral approach to assist my clients in developing the tools necessary to recognize these types of issues and their impact, and help them explore more effective means of coping.

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

I offer individual, family, and group counseling services for men and women within the ages of 14 and older. My experience enables me to work effectively with people who want relief from anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, self-harm, grief, and trauma. I also work with individuals who have dual diagnoses including addictions.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practices?

My treatment approach integrates psychodynamic, mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral, and experiential/expressive arts therapies.

When should one seek treatment?

I believe that a person has to be ready and willing to make a commitment to treatment and that this has to come internally and cannot be forced externally. However, there are some clues people can become aware of that indicate the need to seek help. The clearest clue, yet most difficult to face, is that your life has become unmanageable. You may not be aware of how unmanageable your life has become but you might notice that those you love are pointing out that your life is out of control. A great deal of emotional pain that does not seem to go away is another clue that it is time to be kind to yourself and seek the support you need. Also, there may be times where issues are triggered because of a difficult transition occurring in your life. It is ok to reach out for support and help during these difficult times.

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

In most instances there is a clear relationship between mental health and substance abuse. Individuals attempt to self-medicate with substances to feel better from untreated mental health issues. I believe that all addictions are on some level attempting to ease pain or discomfort. Sometimes this pain and discomfort is caused by a mental illness that has been left untreated. Often I see people using addictions to treat pain from unresolved trauma. The relationship between the two can go in reverse as well. There may be a strong genetic component to a person’s addiction and the results of this addiction on their life leads to depression.

My approach to any form of addiction is to get a clear understanding of the purpose or need the addiction is trying to serve. I do not approach the addiction as the enemy, yet I work to set clear boundaries around the addiction. So if someone is coming to me for addiction to a substance as their primary concern, I begin by taking a thorough family history of both addictions and mental health.  I establish a clear plan addressing the addiction issues. I feel strongly about the importance of collaboration with other treatment professionals, family, and community resources. Depending on the severity of addiction I may refer someone to an intensive treatment option to get management of the addiction and then encourage them to work on the underlying issues related to the addiction.

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

I offer a safe environment for many kinds of therapy; individual, couples, interfaith couples, and family therapy. I see adults only and do not see children or teens. I work well with GBLTQ population, recovering families dealing with relationship issues and living a different life without addiction, interfaith couples, and any kind of marriages; separated or divorcing to pre-marital issues. As far as what issues I work with; typically anxiety issues, depression, personality, sexual or relationship issues and people seeking higher level functioning, plans for their lives, or deep insight.  

What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?

I use a family systems model including Structural and Strategic approaches, Adlerian and Jungian approaches, and a Mindfulness approach. This is always a difficult question because the client assessment tells me what therapeutic approach would work best with each client or couple, it is very individualized.

When should one seek treatment?

Principally, a person should seek treatment when they realize there is a problem and not as as a last resort, which is typically not the case. People often seek treatment as a last effort in a relationship or a marriage or even an individual issue. This makes the process of treatment more difficult for the person seeking treatment. Seeking therapy early allows a person to gain a different perspective and potentially a better result than those who wait until they are frustrated and considering giving up.

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

The relationship between mental health issues like depression and anxiety issues are entwined with addiction. The substances taken are typically used for escape methods from worldly problems in one form or another so it usually masks the depression and/or anxiety issues.

I do not do primary substance abuse treatment or 12 step work or interventions but I do offer counseling for the family or the individual needing re-integration into their family unit and their new lives. I work well with family members devastated by the addicted person's behavior and wanting to understand addiction. I work with clients individually needing support and assistance to enter a treatment program, or return to a treatment program in a therapeutic setting.

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

I provide counseling for children (as young as 2 years old), teenagers, and adults.  My specialties are play therapy for children, parenting, and addiction.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?

With children I follow child centered therapy, and with teenagers and adults, I use a much more direct approach using psychodynamic theory.

When should one seek treatment?

Treatment should be sought after behaviors have become out of the ordinary realm for the person, and have lasted for 3 or more weeks.  Therapy should be preventative rather than reparative, so people should seek help sooner rather than later.

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

Addiction and substance abuse is acting out the unresolved issues and traumas from earlier life. Therefore, mental health can help people understand unhealthy patterns and triggers, while giving them tools to keep from falling back into the old bad habits of substance abuse.
