Justin Dyniewski of Progressive Psychiatry will head the Southlake practice.

Progressive Psychiatry, a Fort Worth-based private practice focusing on putting patients aged 3 to 65 back in charge of their mental health, has opened a third location at 1330 North White Chapel Blvd. in Southlake. Justin Dyniewski, M.D., who is Board Certified in Adult Psychiatry and Board Eligible in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, will practice at the new office serving Southlake’s mental health community.

 

“We have a novel approach to healthcare at Progressive Psychiatry that successfully delivers individualized mental health treatment that is both transparent and collaborative,” said Brian Dixon, M.D., founder and Executive Director of Progressive Psychiatry. Named to the Fort Worth Business Press “2017 40 Under 40”, Dr. Dixon is blazing new paths to reintegrate mental health into our modern lifestyles . “Bypassing health insurance companies that exist solely to make a profit, we spend the needed time and attention with our patients free of restrictions, and are thrilled to expand this unique but effective approach in Southlake with Dr. Dyniewski.”

 

Prior to joining Progressive Psychiatry, Dr. Dyniewski served for five years as a staff physician for Mental Health Mental Retardation (MHMR) of Tarrant County, the second-largest community center in Texas providing mental health and intellectual and development disability services. He earned his Doctor of Medicine in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, and holds a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from Harding University.

 

“Children and teens grow through unique developmental stages, and it’s important that mental health providers use these as checkpoints and guides to build individualized treatment plans for the whole family,” added Dr. Dyniewski. “Teamwork is powerful, and I, along with Dr. Dixon, aim to build teams of motivated parents, energetic patients, active educators, and collaborating health providers so your children can reach their maximum potential.”

 

Progressive Psychiatry’s Southlake location specializes in the treatment of ADHD, anxiety and depression, offering help in coping with behavioral issues, Bipolar Disorder, intra-familial conflict, medication management, PTSD, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Impulse Control and all Mood Disorders.

 

The office is located at 1330 North White Chapel Blvd., Suite 100 in Southlake, and can be reached at 682-200-1744, or via email at info@progressivepsychiatry.org. Progressive Psychiatry also has two Fort Worth locations. More information on Progressive Psychiatry’s fresh approach to mental healthcare is available online at www.progressivepsychiatry.org

The 2017 Addison Rotary Open Golf Tournament presented by The Addison Rotary Foundation and benefiting Ronald McDonald House of Dallas (RMHD) is scheduled for Monday, September 11 at Gleneagles Country Club in Plano. The Addison Rotary Open has raised more than $1.7 million for RMHD over the past nine years.

Offering both a morning and afternoon flight, registration for the tournament’s four-man team scrambles will open at 7 a.m. with a continental breakfast, or at 12:30 p.m. with lunch. Shotgun Starts will take place at 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. respectively. Lunch and awards will be presented at the completion of morning play, while appetizers and awards will also be offered after the afternoon round. All golfers will receive goodie bags and enjoy fun games throughout the course.

“This tournament always attracts enthusiastic participation because of the direct support it offers to our families,” said Jill Cumnock, Chief Executive Officer of RMHD. “Each individual player spot covers the cost of six nights at the House, which can make the difference for a family enduring the struggle of a sick or seriously injured child.”

The Addison Rotary Foundation is a non-profit organization established to address community issues through service projects such as the Addison Rotary Open. The Ronald McDonald House of Dallas provides a home-away-from-home for 1,200 families each year while their children are receiving treatment for illnesses or injuries at Dallas hospitals. The House serves a critical need for those who stay there, all of whom come from distances greater than 40 miles away from Dallas. Although RMHD asks guest families to contribute only $15 per night, no family is ever turned away for an inability to pay.  The Addison Rotary Open has raised more than $3.7 million for both RMHD and other non-profits since it began in 1990.

Sponsorships are still available ranging from Gold at $1,250 (10 family nights), Platinum at $2,500 (20 family nights), Love at $5,000 (40 family nights) to Diamond at $10,000 (80 family nights), while individual playing spots are $750 (6 family nights).

All of Dallas is invited to don a Give Love T-shirt this Give Love Day, Friday, May 12, to provide a night’s stay to one of the 1,200 families served by Ronald McDonald House of Dallas (RMHD) each year.

 

In its 6th year, Give Love Day encourages an annual show of solidarity from the Dallas community to support out-of-town families seeking treatment locally for their child’s serious illness or injury by purchasing and wearing the limited edition $15 Give Love 2017 T-shirt. The price of the shirts is the same as the suggested donation for a family’s one-night stay at the House, where they receive shelter, three meals a day lovingly prepared by volunteers, and emotional support from staff and other families in similar situations.

 

“So many of us ask ourselves what we can do to help when families face the extraordinary challenge of a sick or injured child,” said Jill Cumnock, Chief Executive Officer of RMHD. “Give Love Day is an opportunity for us to not only show those families that we empathize with their struggle, but to also help meet their basic needs by covering the cost of a night’s stay at the House with a T-shirt purchase. Some of our families may need to stay here for months, so it’s an incredible gift to provide even a night.”

 

Families who stay at RMHD are asked to contribute only $15 a night toward the cost of their stay, but no family is ever turned away for an inability to pay. Give Love Day will culminate with an ice cream party for friends of all ages and current House residents at RMHD from 2 to 4 p.m. with Shiloh, Chief Cheer Officer of RMHD.

 

The cornflower blue T-shirts are sized youth S and M, and adult S to XXXL, and are available online at www.rmhdallas.org/givelove, as well as at the front desk of RMHD, located at 4707 Bengal Drive in Dallas. Group orders of more than 10 are also available through Bailey Kafer at bkafer@rmhdallas.org or 214-624-5363. Those who purchase a T-shirt are encouraged to post photos featuring their T-shirts to social media with the hashtag #GiveLove17.

 

Current sponsors for Give Love Day include Liquid Agents Healthcare, RMHC of Greater North Texas, Lute Riley Honda, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, Axxys Technologies and Parrish Restaurants, LTD.
