The Dr. Dean Difference:

Although it might seem there are more affordable and many in-network providers in the DFW area.  The Dr. Dean Difference is noticed in a very short period of time.  Dr. Dean himself spent the first 10 years of clinical experience providing pro-bono and managed-care services to North Texas Residents and the Residents of Highland Park, TX; University Park, TX; Addison, TX; Allen, TX, McKinney, TX; Plano, TX; Richardson, TX; Frisco, TX; and Dallas, TX.  Now with more than 30 years of combined experience as a student of psychology, counseling, psychotherapy, and sex therapy, a licensed clinician, a professor and counselor educator, sex therapist, mental health expert speaker, author, and leader in the field he now focuses on providing services to a much smaller audience of clients, to ensure he can devote his undivided attention in treating their concerns.  As his experience has grown, so have the complexity of the nature of the clients he treats and chooses to work with.  These much more complex cases, not only require the attention of an expert therapist who is appropriately educated, trained, and experienced in addressing those concerns, they also require much more out-of-session preparation, engagement, and feedback to ensure clients reach their goals in the shortest and most efficient amount of time.  So while other therapists may seem to be willing to do the job they believe he’s doing for much less, sometimes the efficiency, expertise, and quality that comes with over 2 decades of education, practice, and teaching will certainly be felt as the process unfolds.
