I am also a Critical Incident Responder, giving onsite support to professional sports organizations, hospitals, banks, and other major corporations after traumatizing events. I'v worked in the EAP field, counseling a wide range of clients telephonically, and am currently in private practice . My undergraduate degree in psychology is from Belmont University, I have a Master's in counseling from The University of Texas San Antonio, and a PhD in counseling psychology from North Central University. My clients include those with severe depression, conduct disorders, mood disorders, gender dysphoria, PTSD, anxiety, work and family stress, and marital concerns. My goal is to help clients become self sufficient in finding coping skills, and to help them be their own solution creators. I am engaged, have a son and step son, 12 chickens, and three dogs. Mindfulness, and humor, as well as a good support system help to get me through each day.

Dr. Dana is the perfect match for me, which has made all the difference in my counseling. She’s of the same race, appears close in age, and we have a similar background. I feel heard when I share my thoughts with her and she has really helped me to think about some things in a deeper way and to change how I think altogether about other things. Thank you, Dr. Dana!

Dr. Carter is a wonderful listener and intakes everything I say to her and makes sure to take all that information and tell me the main advice that I need to help me more

I think she is a good counselor the times that we are in now is limiting the time we need from these professionals. But over all the experience is good .

Dana was a great ear and provided perspective and techniques to understand my anxieties and how to face them instead of distracting from them or trying to ignore them. I appreciated her help!

I am so thankful to have found Dr. Carter. After a negative experience with another counselor, Dr. Carter was a breath of fresh air. I feel like she really listens to me and helps me to manage my anxiety.
