Dana Juarez

(M.A., LMFT, USMC, Veteran/Retired)

About Me

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist based out of Southwest Oklahoma. I have worked in the mental health field for over 3 years. I graduated from Liberty University with a Master of Arts in Marriage & Family Therapy in 2016. I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology from Campbell University in 2012.

In these years, I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults. Primarily these are families who are experiencing a problematic issue with one of the family members and desire to work together to regain a working, stable home environment. I also assist couples who are working through relationship issues/transitions and individuals who are working on a better self.

Additionally, I served 20 years in the US Marines, retiring as a Master Sergeant in 2012. I have a no-nonsense approach to therapy, that being said, I fully believe an essential element to any therapeutic relationship starts with your goals as the client. I will strive to create a relationship where you feel safe and comfortable to share your feelings without fear of judgement. As your Therapist I will encourage, provide insight, and at times even challenge you in your identified areas. My approach will combine solution- focused, cognitive behavior therapy, and trauma focused cognitive behavior therapy when necessary.

I am here to support and empower you to your desired goals.

I look forward to work with you!
