Dr. Dallas (Beau) Fleming graduated from Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans in May 2005 and began his residency in adult psychiatry at LSU-New Orleans shortly before Hurricane Katrina devastated the New Orleans metropolitan area in late August of 2005. Dr. Fleming ultimately transferred to the University of Colorado's residency program in Denver, CO in January 2006, and has lived and practiced in Denver since then.
During residency in Denver, Dr. Fleming gravitated to working with the public safety-net hospital, Denver Health, and took a particular interest in working with patients with severe and persistent mental illness. After completing his final year as chief resident at Denver Health in June 2011, Dr. Fleming continued to pursue a career in public mental health working with the Mental Health Center of Denver for seven years, working with low-income patients with co-morbid mental health and substance use disorders. While working at the Mental Health Center of Denver, Dr. Fleming pursued a fellowship in addiction medicine through the American Board of Preventative Medicine and successfully obtained board certification in addiction medicine in January 2018.
In 2019, Dr. Fleming pivoted to working as a telepsychiatrist for the community mental health provider for Boulder County, Mental Health Partners. He held the role for 2 years prior to joining Talkiatry. Dr. Fleming's clinical interests include mood disorders, personality disorders as well as substance use disorders (especially when co-morbid). He has an extensive background in managing complex psychopharmacology but remains a firm proponent of cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and motivational interviewing as vital components of behavioral health treatment.
