The focus of treatment from this perspective is on interactions within systems, such as family and society, even when working with an individual. I believe effective therapy is based on faith that every individual or family has the ability to affect change within their own relationships. While I encourage... Read More

Nothing in life is one size fits all; therapy is no exception. My first priority is to establish a trusting relationship with you, then together create goals tailored to your individual needs.

Guide to Finding Mental Health Professionals in Dallas

The city of Dallas is massive, ranking 9th most populated among the United States and is the third most populated city of the state of Texas itself, with San Antonio and Houston being the only two that are more populated. According to 2010 Census data, the population of Dallas is 1.1 million. The population and the diversity of Dallas can result in quite a difficult search for mental health professionals. This guide will help you find mental health professionals with different specializations that will make your search for a mental health professional much easier.

Do you need a mental health professional?

There is no shame in seeking out a mental health professional to address any mental health issues you may have. Even something that people think are minuscule such as stress from the workplace, losing a partner or lack of having a partner in your life can affect other areas in your life. Seeing a mental health professional is not just reserved for people who have endured unfortunate or traumatic events in their lives. They exist for anybody who is troubled, no matter how “insignificant” the trouble could be. All things considered, if you believe you might need to see a mental health professional, then you probably do need to see one.

Facts about Dallas that could affect mental health

Dallas is a very large city, and unless you are living in the core of the city, it will be necessary to possess reliable transportation to get where you need to go. This can get stressful, as the city contains quite a bit of winding highways and side roads that surround the core. It costs quite a bit to live in the city, with apartment rent averaging roughly $1000for a one bedroom apartment. buying a home is not cheap either, with the average value being right around $200,000.

This can make things quite stressful if you are not making enough money to truly enjoy life in Dallas. Although most mental health professionals are not financial consultants, it can be argued that seeing one can calm some of the stresses that can come from working and making enough money to live properly in this city. This will allow you to get more work finished in a shorter amount of time as well as possibly look for a better job that can pay you more.

While most of the statistics conditions that could be stressful and troubling such as divorce and unemployment are rather low compared to the rest of the state as well as the United States, which is good, there are still things about the city that could affect mental health. For example, if you happen to be divorced or unemployed in the city, it places you in a minority which can affect mental health. Nobody likes to feel like they do not belong, and if this feeling like you do not measure up to your employed and married citizens, it can cause some serious mental health issues such as anxiety or even depression.

What Can a Mental Health Professional Do?:

Despite people still believing that there is a stigma surrounding people who have made the decision to go to therapy, there are many things that mental health professionals can do that you think you can do yourself. One of the biggest “secrets” that people do not know about is that some of the most successful people on the planet hire mental health professionals. This is easy to tell just by the way they act. There are those who do not hire mental health professionals. We all know what happens to them. There is absolutely no shame in deciding to come to a mental health professional if you believe you need one. If some of the most successful people on the planet do this, then why can’t you?

Going back to the previous example of being single and jobless, this can cause a lot of stress for a person even though both of those conditions appear easy to remedy. After all, how much effort can it really take to find a job and a partner? It isn’t that it is impossible to do these things on your own, but rather it is the pressure that you place on yourself that can make this so difficult and overwhelming. For proof of this, ask anybody who has been jobless or dateless for over a year how “easy” it is to find a job or a partner.

What the majority of mental health professionals do is twofold. First, they provide unbiased responses to your questions and/or your concerns. If you tell your overly macho or overly sensitive friend or family member about your concerns, you are not likely to get an objective solution. Second, like any coach, mentor, or consultant, they assist in organizing and reshaping your negative thought patterns brought on by current unfavorable situations or previous unfortunate events that took place.

Where to find a mental health professional and what to expect?

There are a plethora of therapists and counselors in the Dallas area who are committed to any realm of mental health. Although health insurance is required for many of these, there are some who are willing to make exceptions. Getting help from a mental health professional does cost money, but it is money well spent, as when you do this, you are investing in the one thing that you should always be able to trust: yourself. Take a look at the e-counseling.com to find a therapist for you.
