Dr. Dallas Carey

(PsyD)

About Me

Hello and welcome! My name is Dr. Dallas Carey, and I am a Florida native. I trained as a Clinical Psychologist at Nova Southeastern University in South Florida, graduating in 2014. I completed my Internship at the National Psychology Training Consortium in Indiana, and then worked as a Program Director for a Geriatric Crisis Stabilization Program in the East Bay in Northern California. I recently moved back to my home state of Florida and am pursuing my passion to make a difference helping others live more healthfully and happily.

I work with clients holistically, meaning that when someone comes to me with a psychological problem, I help create change by formulating interventions targeted at important life domains (e.g., nutrition, sleep, social relationships, stress, thinking style, & daily structure.) For example, I am interested in how you think and feel about yourself and others, how your family relationships influence these thoughts, and how other daily health behaviors facilitate your well-being. I use this integrated approach to help build insight, foster understanding, and develop helpful behaviors that move you in the direction of Wellness. It has always intuitively made sense that to help a person make positive life changes, one has to acknowledge the Whole Person. The idea is that the Mind and Body are intricately connected in a real tangible way that affect how we think and feel. While, traditional psychotherapeutic modalities are incredibly helpful to improving one's mental health, I layer on a Whole Person treatment perspective. Via this dynamic approach, one's physical health and nutrition is taken into consideration as it contributes to one's mental health.

I specialize in working with clients with a variety of problems that range from debilitating anxiety, and depression, to problems in coping with life changes and transitions, and relationship and family issues. By utilizing a whole-person approach, and incorporating your life values, I help individuals create the change they seek to make in their lives.

I believe that good psychotherapy should result in a changed life. While insight and self-understanding are important, deep understanding of one's self does not always translate into behavioral change. I combine process and insight oriented psychotherapy with problem- solving, practical, CBT interventions that are done between sessions to maximize treatment. I also integrate the important idea that we must totally and fully accept ourselves while simultaneously kindly working with ourselves to make desired changes.
