Hello, my name is Dana and I’ve been working with clients for more than 10 years. I have 3 main focuses in my work, the first is working folks who have experienced trauma, the second is working with LGBTQ+ clients, and the third is working with folks (or family members of folks) that are unhappy with their alcohol or drug use.
Are there tough life experiences that you struggle to move past? Or patterns that you don't like but find yourself repeating? Trauma isn't limited to extreme situations like military deployment, being in a cult, or experiencing a robbery - it also includes common experiences like unhealthy relationships, losing someone important to you, bullying, divorce, medical events, abuse and more. Therapy cannot change the past but it can change how it affects our present. There are many ways to heal from painful experiences and we can work together to find you relief.
Are you unhappy with your drinking or drug use but too embarrassed or ashamed to talk to someone about it? Do you worry about how your drinking or drug use is impacting you? Are you afraid that if you do talk about it someone will tell you that you are an addict or have to stop drinking or using completely? Together, you and I will sort out what’s making it hard to cut back or quit. There are many ways to be satisfied with how much you’re drinking and using or not doing it at all. I will work with you and help you find a way forward without lecturing or judgement. We can figure this out together.
Are you queer, bi, trans, gay or a person that otherwise falls under the rainbow umbrella? Are you struggling with how to come out to others, have healthy romantic or sexual relationships, or build supportive friendships? Do people in your life judge you or not understand your gender identity, sexual orientation, or gender expression? Are you just trying to figure out what all these words even mean? Judgement from the people around us can feel crushing, and I don’t want you to suffer from that anymore. Therapy can provide tools to increase your confidence and build the kind of relationships you want to take your life back. I get what’s happening and we can work together to make things better.

I love Dana she's been the best through the bad and the good.
Dana is wonderful. She listens and acknowledges all parts of you in order to help you achieve your goals and facilitate your healing journey. She empowers her clients with tools and validation. She’s an all around great therapist.
Dana is great at listening to my LONG diatribes and picking out the most important pieces that I need to be listening to.
I am often overwhelmed by the speed at which my brain seems to jump around and change course. It is hugely helpful and comforting to know that I have someone who can distill it down for me and help me figure out what the truths are that are hiding in all the chaos.
Dana is very attentive and offers great solutions for working through disordered eating habits.
Dana is the best!! She is incredibly helpful and insightful. I’d recommend anyone to her.
Dana is so helpful and knowledgeable. I appreciate her listening skills and ability to help me navigate some tricky personal issues right now.
Dana is incredibly caring, compassionate, and insightful! I appreciate the work we do in our sessions so much. I feel real progress!
Dana is a great listener. She creates an atmosphere that makes it comfortable to share or talk about anything. Dana provides insight on topics or practices, which can be helpful to learn about yourself and reactions towards certain situations.
Dana is so very helpful in sessions, as well as outside of therapy with the tools she’s given me to help in between our conversations!
Dana is exactly what I needed in a therapist. She is compassionate, understanding, and beyond helpful. I literally tell everyone I can about her! ^-^
Dana Malone-White has been instrumental in working with me to improve significant areas of my life! Her expertise, guidance, and openness are invaluable.
She is absolutely fantastic. I wasn't sure what to expect since this is the first time I've sought any type of counseling, and my expectations were met and exceeded. She has been professional, understanding, been in constant contact, and just a great help. Even though it's only been a couple of weeks and I know I still have a ways to go, I feel confident. Overall, it has been a very positive experience so far.
Dana is very friendly and engaging, and professional. Very grateful to have found such a great counselor on this site!
Dana is personable and I feel comfortable sharing my thoughts with her.
Dana has provided me with tools that align with my situation. I very much appreciate her help and wisdom. Thank you
