As your therapist, I will listen with patience and encouragement and without judgement. My expertise includes reducing depression and anxiety, and helping you through hard times to flourish. My approach is intuitive and creative, yet is also evidence-based, using mindfulness training, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) , expressive arts, and more to reduce your distress and improve coping. Our sessions will provide you an opportunity to express feelings and learn new skills to improve your quality of life. In your confidential sessions, you will discover the power of telling your story. You can choose to let go of past issues, learn how to be mindful of the present, and/or discover and achieve your vision of the future. You will learn simple, effective tools to help you access and use your unique motivation to change the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that are worsening your symptoms.
Am I the right counselor for you? My clients tell me my strengths include my ability to relate with empathy (to the story, the person, the struggle, and the healing). My ability to see and hear details, patterns, reasons for resistance, and true motivation for change, can assist with helping you achieve insight and lasting change. Though not useful in every situation, clients report that my sense of humor and irony help them see through their "moment" (fear, angst, etc.) and move through it, maybe even with a smile..

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dana Mortensen. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Dana is awesome. I am so glad I have decided to use this program/app.
Dana is so wonderful. Her listening style is detail oriented and she responds appropriately to my concerns and the topics I want to cover in our sessions. I don’t think I’ve ever had a better therapist. I feel I’m making the progress I was hoping to by signing up for BetterHelp and it wouldn’t have been such a rewarding experience if it wasn’t for Dana.
She is simply the best.
She is very friendly and listens well
Dana is an awesome listener and she gave great suggestions and helped me through my issues. Again thank you Dana!!
Dana is wise and insightful! She quickly understood what I was communicating and reflected it back in terms that brought me to a new perspective. Very positive and encouraging too!
Dana is wonderful, attentive, caring and genuine. She makes you feel like you’re her only client and gives you the tips and tools to help yourself. I was unsure about online counseling until I met her.
Dana and I connected from our first phone call-it was like talking to an old friend! She listens and makes me look forward to therapy each week-something I have never done! I only wish I had found her sooner!
She is really great.
Dana has been great to work with. She is very understanding and compassionate.
Dana has a fantastic sense of humor that helps put me at ease and feel more open to communicate. Also a really calming voice. If this doesn't work out for her she should do voice acting. Haha.
I especially like Dana’s no-nonsense but gentle touch when communicating. She is easy to talk to and very interested in helping in whatever way I need.
Very caring, knowledgeable, and a great listener. I have complete trust in her.
I've only had a couple of sessions to date but Dana has been very involved, respectful, insightful, and kind. She keeps a good sense of humor and has been extremely helpful.
Very friendly, knowledgeable, sincere in her response to my issues. She always checks in on me without me reaching out first. It’s been a great experience so far!
Very understanding and helpful. She is helping me through a really tough time. I really enjoy her therapy.
Dana is a great listener. I have come a long way just in few weeks of working with her. Still a long way to go and I am confident about it.
Dana is professional, intuitive, and works well with my needs. She is the best counselor I have ever had!
Dana has been amazing and has given me lots of tools to deal with my problems.

I am so happy to have worked with Dana. She has been emphatic, supportive and inspired me to make positive changes. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP, DANA!
Dana is extremely capable and our sessions got off on a great track. She is very easy to talk to and that helped me open up about things I find difficult to discuss. I highly recommend her as a therapist.
Dana is a good listener and has the ability to make me feel comfortable. She is friendly, thoughtful and patient.
Dana is very professional and has been a blessing. I appreciate her insight and understanding. She has been a blessing. Thank you.
I've only been working with Dana a few weeks and I already feel I'm on the right path with her. She's easy to talk with, insightful without taking over you, and she makes me feel my issues are common and nothing to be embarrassed by. I've worked with other counselors in the past. Dana and BetterHelp have exceeded anyone I've worked with before.
I've had a lot of therapists and Dana is by far the one that relates the most to me. Her forward, conversational style is exactly what I need during this time and she seems to have a wealth of knowledge.
