About me

My guess is you hate the person in the mirror because they are so different from what you pictured for yourself by now. You don't know how anyone else could love you because you can't even stand yourself. Are you lost in life and searching for purpose? Maybe you've lost that initial spark in your relationship and are desperately trying to get that feeling back. Or stuck in a rut at your job and just want to quit. You overthink everything and somehow you accomplish nothing. Life has got you overwhelmed, exhausted, unmotivated, hopeless and wondering why you even get out of bed in the morning. Are you getting in your own way?

Imagine one day you wake up motivated for your dream job, you actually smile back at the person in the mirror, you are surrounded by people who light your fire all day, and you get excited for the life you created after work. That's what it feels like when you have developed self-worth. It takes a brave soul to get in touch with one's vulberabilities, but if you do that you will better understand what you truly need and how to effectively get it. The first step is learning to love and take better care of yourself. It's time to put you first!

I have worked in a range of settings (community, residential, private practice) for the last 6 years. I have intensive training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy which helps clients better regulate their emotions and work well with others. My specialty is working on mindfulness and mind/body connection because I believe that when we take some time to listen to our bodies, we find the ability to better take care of ourselves and truly understand what we need. I believe in the importance of self-care and self-love which will ultimately attract the life you want and help improve relationships with others. When we allow ourselves to embrace our vulnerabilities, we can come out on top as stronger, more confident individuals and accomplish our goals. My strongest specialties include helping clients improve self-esteem, understanding the weight loss journey, anxiety management, identity issues, and relationship issues.

I can help you because I was that person above once. I've done the transformation myself and have the DBT and mindfulness skills that will teach you how to love yourself, work well with others, handle your emotions, and attract the life you want. Together we will discover ways to be more comfortable being you and better able to navigate the stressors surrounding you.

Dana has been absolutely amazing! She has been respectful, personable, relatable, and especially insightful! Dana has taught me so much in a few short months. I feel held accountable while also feeling cared about personally. I cannot thank her enough for all she has taught me in dealing with my depression, anxiety, and interpersonal relationships. Dana is an excellent therapist, relatable and professional, kind and direct, a good listener and an educator, a friend and a support system all while respecting boundaries and being discrete. I was highly hesitant on therapy, honestly it was a last resort for me. But it was one of the greatest decisions i have made in the goal of self care. I picked Dana from an extensive list of recommended therapists due to her expertises and specialties but mostly because of her picture. She looked sweet and professional and grounded. This has all been extremely true, and I feel so happy to meet with her and tell her all the good news and how everything is improving and to also learn more about how to improve that which is not excelling :) Thank you Dana! I really appreciate your flexibility and understanding and for being just so cool :D 10/10 GOAT
