If things aren’t getting better on their own, maybe it’s time to try a different approach.
You might be considering therapy if you’ve been feeling stuck in life. Maybe you excel at what you do, but everything seems harder than it should. Maybe you feel like your brain just won’t shut off at the end of the day. You might be facing a new challenge, like starting a new career or relationship, coping with an illness, or losing something important to you. Maybe anxiety or depression has been following you around for a while, or maybe it’s a new experience. People work hard to manage on their own. But if things aren’t getting better, it might be time to get professional care.
I’m Dr. Hannah Cassedy, a clinical psychologist. Although located in Dallas, I offer video therapy to adults anywhere in Texas and a few other states. In my practice, I often see professionals and high achievers who feel spread too thin, burned out, or like the balance in their life is somehow “off.” These folks sometimes deal with subtle anxiety and depression for years, perhaps not feeling like it rises to the level of needing treatment. But without addressing some of those underlying issues, the hurdles just keep piling up. That’s where therapy can help.
I also have a background in health psychology, with cospecialties in therapy for pregnant/postpartum women and for people diagnosed with cancer. I am also committed to providing services to people affected by COVID. When life throws you a curve ball, whether a career shift, a new baby, or a medical complication, you can talk with a professional: one who has expertise treating anxiety and depression, as well as some of the specific challenges you may be facing.
Because of the pandemic, these services are now available via video from the comfort of your home. I use private and secure technology for communicating with you, for scheduling appointments, and for conducting video therapy so that you don’t need to worry about the process of getting help. And as a sincere thank you to our frontline workers, I offer pay-what-you-can for COVID healthcare providers. For those who prefer in-person therapy, I will resume offering those appointments in Dallas when it is safe to do so.
You should know that I always do my best to create a safe environment for everyone I see. My practice is humbly affirming of all cultural backgrounds, religious beliefs (or lack thereof), sexual orientations, and gender identities. You can read more about my approach to therapy here.
You’re welcome to call me “Dr. Cassedy” or “Hannah,” whichever you prefer. But for googling purposes, please note that my name is often misspelled as Hannah Cassidy. It’s correctly spelled with an e: Hannah Cassedy.
