Dana has been an amazing counselor and has guided me to a better state of being and understanding. She takes the time to understand the complex issues and makes them simple enough to understand and face whatever it is you’re going through. I highly recommend her for those in need of counseling.
Dana offers guided insight with knowledge and great observation. I’ve been able to pinpoint issues and take the steps needed to work on these in a healthy, constructive way. I felt comfortable with her right away and I am glad I chose her as my counselor.
Dana listens and responds promptly. At times I don't write anything but she is always sending me positivity and helpful information . She is always there for me even when I'm not.
Dana is extremely understanding, kind, and responsive. She truly is my pocket therapist!
Dana really takes the steps to show that she cares. She’s very understanding and knowledgeable, I can’t thank her enough!
I highly recommend Dana. After working with her in short period of time, I noticed positive change on my behavior. I like her prompt responses and sharing me some significant links.
