Maryellen Dabal holds a Post-Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and a Masters degree in Applied Psychology, both received from Seton Hall University in 2005. She relocated to NE Tarrant County from New Jersey in December, 2006 with her husband of over 20 years and two teenage daughters. She has worked with individuals, couples and families in a variety of settings including a high school, a traditional counseling center and a correctional facility, before moving on to private practice in Southlake,TX, where she has been for almost three years. Her therapeutic philosophy is a combination of believing that discussions of the past can help you to understand where you have come from, which allows you to be able to define where you are today, which further aids in the creating of goals needed to help you reach your full potential. She will treat you with compassion, understanding and respect knowing that asking for help is not an easy thing to do. Maryellen is currently under the supervision of Gloria L. Martin, LMFT, in Dallas as she is working towards obtaining full licensure in the state of Texas.
