Hello, my name is Dana and I’ve been working with clients for more than 10 years. I have 2 main focuses in my work, the first is working with LGBTQ+ clients and the second is working with folks that are unhappy with their alcohol or drug use.
Are you unhappy with your drinking or drug use but too ashamed or embarrassed to tell anyone about it? Do you hide how much you are drinking from those close to you? Or worry about how your drinking is impacting your health? 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.

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
