Hall Counseling and Associates is dedicated to providing mental health treatment and biofeedback for adolescents, adults and seniors suffering from:

Treatments:

Often referred to as the common cold of nervous and mental disorders, the prevalence of major depressive disorder at this time is staggering. True clinical depression is a mood disorder resulting from chemical imbalances in the brain in which feelings of sadness, loss, anger, or frustration interfere with everyday life and/or relationships for weeks or longer. Effective treatment for depression usually involves the seven components of medication, exercise, counseling, biofeedback training, emotional support, and proper intake of the right kinds of food, vitamins and liquids, and light therapy. As with most psychological issues, a complete physical and labs are important to rule out other potential causes of depression.

Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and becomes destructive, it can lead to problems at work, interpersonal relationships, and the overall quality of life. With counseling, individuals can get in touch with the causes of their anger, ventilate them, and learn effective ways to manage their anger. Biofeedback teaches people how to reduce and eliminate the physical effects of anger while they are minor and before they become major.

From effective communication to conflict resolution skills, most conflicted couples can learn to better understand their partners and develop skills that can bring the relationship into harmonious and mutually fulfilling balance. For more information on Couples Therapy click here.

Fear is one of the most basic human emotions that under normal circumstances helps to protect us. Phobias involve the experience of persistent fear that is excessive and unreasonable. People can learn to think more rationally and have the power to reduce and eliminate the mental and physical symptoms that result from fears and phobias.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder may consist of reliving a traumatic event; avoiding situations that remind one of the events; feeling numb; or even feeling “keyed up”. Individuals can learn how to reduce and eliminate both the mental and physical symptoms that come with PTSD.

Having repeated thoughts or images; doing the same rituals over and over again; not being able to control unwanted thoughts and/or behaviors; and spending excessive amounts of time on the thought or ritual are all indicators of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). OCD symptoms can be significantly reduced and/or eliminated with effective counseling and biofeedback training.

Couples entering into the commitment phase of their relationship often need to expand their understanding of each other and enhance the way they relate. Couples Compatibility Counseling can give clear information on the couples strengths in the relationship. It can also help identify areas for growth that can be worked on in order to help ensure the success of the relationship over the long term.

Sometimes people are at a place where they don’t understand who they really are.  Understanding whether one is straight or falls along the LQBT spectrum is important.  It is vital for a person to know, understand, and accept themselves in order to have peace.  Mr. Hall‘s practice accepts everyone regardless of their true identity.

The work environment is increasing with an expected increase in ability and performance.  Sometimes conflict arises in the work environment.  Learning to navigate in the work environment is important for our success.  Learning effective conflict management is valuable for one to learn in order to minimize stress and conflict in the work environment.

Unfortunately the world is composed of many individuals with congenital and acquired disabilities.  Learning to accept and effectively cope with one’s disability is vital for emotional health.

The abrupt onset of fear or discomfort that reaches a peak within minutes including such symptoms as palpitations, pounding heart or accelerated heart rate, sweating, trembling or shaking, sensations of shortness of breath or smothering, and feelings of choking all define panic attacks.  Counseling and Biofeedback are extremely helpful in reducing the frequency and intensity of panic attacks and eliminating panic attacks all together.

    Hello Doug,

    I am Kathleen and I am an MSW, young professional in the Dallas area. I came across your sign the other day, when I was on a walk, and became very interested. I noticed that you were an MSW but not an LCSW or LMSW via your sign outside and your website. As a young professional, I have struggled with the licensure exam and taken it many times. But, when I walked by your office, it gave me hope for my social work profession. I would love to learn more about the services you provide under an MSW without a license. I am hoping to learn more so I can further my career. Thank you for your guidance. I look forward to hearing from you.
    Best,
    Kathleen
