WHAT THERAPISTS IN PLANO HAVE TO SAY

What types of services do you offer?

In my practice, we work with couples, individuals and families around addiction and relationship issues. Some specific life and relationship stressors that we work with include depression, anger, anxiety, and emotional trauma.

What issues do you specify treatment for?

Chemical (including alcohol) dependency is the largest population we work with that seeks treatment. Close behind that group is sex and love addiction. The other significant group we end up treating are people who are willing to look at their family of origin issues that are clouding their current relationships. Intensive work in this area can provide tremendous relief in current relationships and quality of life and often contribute to the addiction issues.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?

We begin with a family systems approach. Nothing happens in a vacuum and where we come from informs (often defines) who we are today. To look at current behavior without considering our history limits potential growth. Patterns will repeat until the origin is dealt with.

When should one seek treatment?

When an addiction becomes primary, or takes over any aspect on ones life, then an intervention of some type is called for. Depending on the severity of the issue, treatment can include anything from occasional counseling support to in-patient treatment for several weeks or more. We usually start with a conservative approach and if more support is needed, we escalate the level of care.

Why should someone choose to come to your practice?

We offer years of experience dealing with these issues in a compassionate but direct way. Tied to our experience is the community awareness that ensures the client will be able to tap into whatever they need. Addiction is often referred to as the family disease. We understand the nature of the impact on the family and treat then entire system, not just the one currently acting out.

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

It is rare to find someone suffering with only addiction. Usually the drinking or acting out (in the case of a process addiction) is only a symptom of the bigger picture. The other issues must be addressed, and the treatment plan must encompass these issues or relapse is almost certain. People are complex, and while there is an order to treatment, an individual must be considered from a bigger picture than just their symptoms.

Why should someone choose to come to your practice?

I am a Licensed Psychologist specializing in the treatment of children, adolescents, and families. I provide individual and family therapy for a variety of emotional, behavioral, and relational issues. My clinical specialties include the treatment of Anxiety and Mood Disorders, where I utilize Cognitive- Behavioral Therapy and other research-based techniques to assist in treatment progression. I have also conducted my own research in the area of adolescent anxiety and presented on this topic in several venues. Recently, my practice has expanded to include the treatment of internet and gaming addictions. In addition to my experiences as a child and adolescent therapist, I have advanced training in two models of family therapy. During the course of my training, I completed family therapy clinical rotations with Marsha McCarty of Bloomington, Indiana, the Youth & Family Centers of Dallas Independent School District, and Salesmanship Club of Dallas. I also pursued a certified clinical externship in Functional Family Therapy. These experiences have allowed me to build effective family treatments for a variety of concerns as I focus on improving family problem-solving, increasing relational perspective, and strengthening family bonds. My professional activities also include a decade of work with Dallas Independent School District as a Licensed Specialist in School Psychology, where I continue to conduct individual therapy, consult with school personnel, present on relevant psychoeducational topics, and build individualized behavior plans. Through my extensive experience in school-based mental health, I’ve learned that building home-school partnerships ensures the highest level of treatment fidelity for my clients.

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

Quite often, substance abuse issues evolve out of a deeper mental health concern. Many adolescents attempt to self-medicate without giving proper attention to the root causes of their concerns. I specialize in the treatment of children and adolescents, so substance abuse concerns would be handled within individual treatment (CBT/ DBT) and/or family treatment (FFT) models.

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

At my office, I provide a wide variety of psychological services, such as individual and couples counseling, group therapy, career / personal / executive coaching, consultations, and workshop presentations. I enjoy providing these services to clients from diverse national origins, ethnic groups, gender and sexual orientation, religious / spiritual orientation, age groups, and socioeconomic and ability status.

My areas of specialization and interest include stress and anxiety management, mood disorders, life transitions, diversity and multicultural issues, career-related concerns, relationship issues, international couples communication, and coping with trauma. I am also a part of the Crisis Care Network (CCN) and am trained to provide Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD) to individuals and organizations. I am also bilingual in both English and Japanese, and can provide counseling and workshop presentations in both languages.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?

I utilize therapy modalities such as cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), interpersonal process therapy (IPT), humanistic-existential therapy, and multicultural-feminist therapy.  I also utilize therapeutic techniques from approaches such as mindfulness-based therapy, dialectical-behavior therapy (DBT), solution-focused therapy, and Gestalt therapy.

When should one seek treatment?

I believe that you can benefit from seeking treatment from a professional when your struggles are negatively impacting various areas of your functioning, such as academic, occupational, social, or personal.  Or, if your struggles are getting in the way of achieving your goals, it may be beneficial to seek treatment from a professional.  

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

Based on my experience as a psychologist, I believe that people often abuse substance as a way to cope with other mental health issues, such as anxiety and stress, depression, trauma, or life transition issues.  I provide individual psychotherapy for those who are struggling with substance abuse and any mental health issues associated with it.

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

I am in private practice which allows me to see a broad range of clients with all types of presenting issues. I offer a sliding fee scale to make sure that I am not restricting someone's access to help based on their ability to pay and even offer free sessions in certain circumstances.

As to what issues I would specify treatment for; I would have to say that I would recommend seeking help for anything that reduces a client's quality of life. It doesn't necessarily have to be a major life problem such as the death of a loved one, drug addictions or marital discord in order to seek help. If something is bothering you and you have done all you know how to do in order to fix it; seek help no matter how small or insignificant you think it is. Small things tend to turn into big things.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practices?

I am a devoted eclectic. I will use anything that I feel might have a positive impact in a client's situation. I am an avid reader and often things will pop into my head that I have read about while talking with a client.  In that way I can use the collective wisdom of an entire profession instead of relying just on one or two methods. If I had to be pinned down to any modality it would be a system's perspective. I believe no problem can be fully understood divorced from the system in which it resides.

When should one seek treatment?

One should seek help as soon as one runs out of answers. We get into trouble when our ability to cope cannot keep up with whatever we are trying to cope with yet we still try and fix it on our own.  We will try over and over using the same methods we have learned sometimes as a child, even though we never seem to get anywhere.  These are times we need someone else to work with us who can give us a different perspective and offer support and understanding while we work through our problems with new, different, more effective methods.

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

Substance abuse never occurs in a vacuum. People abuse substances in order to change the way they feel about something and until the root cause is dealt with the abuse will continue.  People with mental health issues tend to use substances to self medicate; to make themselves feel better when nothing else has worked. A trusted therapist can work with someone with this type of coping mechanism to help them develop better ways to deal with stress, anxiety, etc.
