Dallas Psychiatric Associates -

In November 2013, DPA celebrated twelve years of serving people in the DFW area. The practice was founded with the goal of providing mental health care of the highest quality. Our mission is to improve people's lives, one at a time. We base our success on helping people live and feel better.
If you or your family are needing help, please contact a psychiatrist in your local area to make an appointment as soon as possible. Psychiatric problems are very treatable and delays in getting the care you need could be serious.
As psychiatrists, child psychiatrists and other practitioners, DPA is uniquely qualified to assist you. We are:
Our psychiatrists and other practitioners average more than 25 years of direct patient care.
Each of our practitioners has an average between two and three licenses/certifications.
We realize that getting help is not easy for people so we want to make sure that you are given sufficient time.
Our psychiatrists fully assess everyone for all diagnostic criteria at every session. Our treatment is structured to include psychotherapy as part of psychiatric treatment, not simply refilling meds.
We accept most major health insurance plans, so your cost is simply your copay. For self-pay patients, we offer very affordable rates.
We strive to make appointment for new patients within a week, often within a day or two. For our current patients who are in distress, they are offered to be seen on the same working day. We open late till 6 PM, Monday through Friday.
What We Do
- Built on an effective approach of treating patients
Our psychiatrists spend time with each person to develop an individualized treatment plan. Our treatment is caring, respectful and responsive to your needs.
Individual Therapy/Family Therapy
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy
Based on a therapeutic modality developed by Drs. Segal, Williams and Teasdale of Oxford University, MBCT "combines the ideas of cognitive therapy with meditative practices and attitudes based on the cultivation of mindfulness." MBCT is successful in preventing relapse of depression without using medication.
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Group Therapy Sessions are going to be offered once a week here at DPA. Mindfulness Based Cognitive therapy is a technique that involves meditation and focusing on positive thought patterns. It is an 8 week process that will guide you in overcoming the stress and anxiety in your life.
