Welcome to Executive Psychological Services. We are a concierge psychotherapy practice located in Dallas, Texas.
Dr. Rowling’s approach to psychotherapy is relational. She believes that it is through healthy, safe relationships that we experience change. The relationship between client and therapist serves as a secure base for which self exploration and healing can take place. Within this framework, she looks at psychopathology (chronic stress, depression, anxiety), addiction and/or compulsive behaviors as issues of biology, disconnection, and interpersonal trauma. She believes that addiction is the opposite of connection. People who suffer from psychological distress can heal within a nurturing, supportive relationship.
Dr. Rowling also believes that individuals of high net worth and celebrity status face particular cultural barriers to wellness. While society seems to believe these individuals are immune to pain and distress, it is this population that she has found to be the most isolated. The chronic feelings of emptiness and drive for perfection can often lead to a breakdown in functioning. Issues of legacy and generational wealth can mean highly complicated family systems and unrealistic expectations. She also has found that this population thrives once connection to others is re-established.

- Issues relating to celebrity, power and success

She completed her training in diagnostics at the United States Navy in Great Lakes, Illinois.

Dr. Rowling completed her post-doctoral residency at Cook County Jail in Chicago. She has served as an expert witness for Palm Beach County in her work as a forensic and clinical psychologist. Dr. Rowling has both a personal and professional commitment to working with individuals who suffer from addiction.
