Deann Ware, Ph.D. Psychologist Dallas, TXI’m a psychologist in private practice in Dallas, Texas.  My background includes a doctorate in clinical psychology, postdoctoral training in neuropsychology, and 18 years working one-on-one with clients.

I enjoy helping clients with a variety of concerns, including depression, anxiety, OCD, panic, insomnia, relationship & employment issues, and ADD/ADHD.  If you would like to know more about me and my psychology practice, please visit my practice website at

I created this blog to provide a series of healthy daily activities that are meaningful but not overwhelming, and if followed on a daily basis, help build a healthier and more resilient life.

As a psychologist, I’m a firm believer in the benefits of psychotherapy.  This blog is not an attempt to replace psychotherapy.

One of the purposes of this blog is to teach my clients emotionally healthy habits while conserving their therapy time for deeper, more complex issues.

One of the most common questions I’m asked by clients going through a difficult life transition is, “What do I do?  How do I get through this?”  

Those who fare the best are those who have a solid emotional and interpersonal infrastructure. The most resilient people have a daily routine, a variety of interests and friends/family who support them.  They may be just going through the motions after a loss or trauma, but at least they have motions to go through, until the worst of it starts to recede.

My Goals for the Daily Shoring 90 Day Series:

  • Help people shore up their emotional resources such that they have better coping skills, healthy daily habits, and a variety of interests and avenues for emotional support.  This infrastructure is an integral part of the emotional resilience that makes life easier in general and helps people get through the really tough times.
  • Help  people who simply need to put one foot in front of the other until the depression lifts or the grief recedes
  • Help my private practice clients learn and integrate these emotional well being techniques while preserving their therapy time for exploring more complex issues

About the photos–

All the photos on are photos I took myself (except the pic of me above, of course!).  I wouldn’t qualify as even an amateur photographer and photoshop is not my thing, so don’t hope for anything spectacular!  Despite what I lack in photography skills, I do enjoy observing the world around me and often find beauty or humor in the commonplace.  If I posted a pic, it’s simply because it strikes me as pretty, interesting, or funny.  If there’s no obvious connection between the pic and the post, don’t think you’re missing some deeper meaning because there probably isn’t any.  Sometimes a picture is just a picture!
