Dallas Dralle Shetler

Dallas Dralle Shetler, M.S., MFT, PMH-C is a licensed counselor with Infinite Mindcare and has been practicing in the Cayman Islands since 2015. Dallas is a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT), a Certified Perinatal Mental Health practitioner (PMH-C), and is also a certified “Becoming Us” Facilitator and “Parenthood Tour Guide”, a training which focuses on the relationship between partners as they transition through parenthood together.

Dallas has completed advanced training in Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), trauma therapy, Gottman couples counselling, Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy (Levels I & II); she’s a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP), a certified Prepare/Enrich facilitator, and has additional trainings in Cognitive-Behavioural therapies, Motivational Interviewing, and Mental Health First Aid. Dallas has a Master of Science in Child Development and Family Studies with a specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy from Purdue University, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the Honors College at Michigan State University. Before moving to Cayman in 2015, Dallas practiced in Michigan and Indiana in the United States, where she is originally from. 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 also an instructor and taught undergraduate psychology and child development courses.

As a therapist, Dallas provides outpatient counseling to adults, couples, teens and families with a wide variety of concerns and personal goals. Dallas specialises in working with mothers dealing with perinatal mood disorders, pregnant and postpartum parents and couples, while focusing on the attachment between partners during the postpartum period and helping clients navigate the challenges that early parenthood and the postpartum period brings. Dallas also specializes in working with couples and families, including pre-marital couples, couples facing infidelity, domestic violence, and those interested in marital/relational enrichment and growth throughout the various stages of their relationship.

Working from a holistic, collaborative, strengths-based approach in therapy, she draws from multiple disciplines to match her clients’ 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, alongside you to develop your personal goals and create a plan for therapy that fits your unique needs. 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 wellbeing. Dallas believes that we all have the ability to heal from our past wounds and traumas when we are supported and given a safe space to do so.

Outside of her clinical work, Dallas has been an active member of the Business and Professional Women’s Club of Grand Cayman (BPW) and the Young Business and Professional Women’s Club (YBPW) since September 2015. She is passionate about empowering women in their careers through networking, fundraising, providing workshops, and in giving back to her community through service. As a wellness advocate, Dallas strongly believes in the importance of actively engaging in our community, taking care of our environment, and empowering and helping others. Dallas regularly facilitates the monthly Infinite Mindcare Talk Series & AfterDark Talk Series events and also enjoys being a recurring guest on Mental Health Matters Radio Show on Radio Cayman.
