Behavioral Health Dallas offers individual, group and department level interventions specifically for healthcare providers and medical systems. Our consulting approach is evidence-based and rooted in psychological knowledge and clinical expertise. We exclusively collaborate with healthcare professionals to accelerate performance, improve well-being, shift problematic patterns, and increase personal and professional satisfaction.
How We Are Different
All BHD Consultants and Coaches are doctoral level providers who have completed the highest level of training in their perspective specialty (e.g., Clinical Psychology, Counseling Psychology, and I/O Psychology). As former faculty members at academic medical centers and outpatient clinics, we know what it’s like to be in the trenches working alongside physicians as providers in inpatient, outpatient and specialty settings. Due to our background and training, we are experts in assessment, intervention and providing meaningful feedback. Additionally, we are trained to quickly identify strengths and areas of improvement in order to make specific recommendations and catalyze lasting change.
