Dallas Dralle, MS, LLMFT
Dallas Dralle, M.S., LLMFT, is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and has been practicing in Grand Cayman for the past several years. As a therapist, Dallas provides outpatient counseling to individuals, couples, children and families with a wide variety of concerns and personal goals. Working from an integrated, collaborative, strengths-based approach in therapy, she draws from multiple disciplines to match her client’s individual needs. She does not believe in a "one size fits all" approach to therapy and believes that each individual is the expert in his or her own life. She will work with you collaboratively to develop your personal goals and create a plan for therapy that fits your personal needs.
Dallas has extensive experience working with individuals facing substance abuse issues and helping them on their journey through recovery from addiction. She specializes in working with couples, including pre-marital couples, couples facing infidelity, domestic violence, and those interested in marital/relational enrichment and growth. She also has a wealth of experience working with families, working from an attachment lens by focusing on strengthening the relationship between parents and their children. As a family therapist, Dallas believes in a holistic and systemic approach to treatment, and treats all of her clients within the context of their families, relationships, and their environment as she helps to empower them to make positive changes in their lives. Dallas is passionate about helping her clients find and harness their inner strengths and resources to live happier lives and improve their general sense of well-being.
After graduating magna cum laude from the Honors College at Michigan State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, Dallas went on to obtain a Master of Science degree in Child Development and Family Studies with a specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy from Purdue University Calumet. Her graduate thesis research focused on the significance of the therapeutic relationship in treatment, and this knowledge and experience forms the foundation for Dallas' clinical practice and focus on her personal, therapeutic relationship with each client. During her three years studying at Purdue, she was an instructor and taught undergraduate psychology and child development courses. As a mental health professional, she has 9 years of experience working in a variety of clinical settings throughout her studies and post-graduate work. She has worked as a therapist in both inpatient and outpatient settings, including community outpatient clinics, a government agency, and residential treatment centers with adults recovering from drug and alcohol addiction. Dallas is a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP), trained in EMDR, and a certified Prepare/Enrich facilitator. Dallas completed Level I and Level II of Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy which she regularly incorporates into her therapeutic approach. She also has training in Cognitive-Behavioral therapies, Motivational Interviewing, and Mental Health First Aid.
Outside of her clinical work, Dallas has been an active member of the Business and Professional Women’s Club of Grand Cayman (BPW) since September 2015. She is also an active member of Young BPW and co-chair of the Health and Wellness committee for BPW. She is passionate about empowering women in their careers through networking, fundraising, providing workshops, and in giving back to her community through service. She also spends time volunteering through the Humane Society and through regular beach clean-ups around Cayman. As a wellness advocate, Dallas believes in the importance of giving back to our community, taking care of our environment, and empowering and helping others.
