Dr. Dawn Ferrara


About Me

Hello and welcome! I am so glad that you have made the decision to reach out. It can be hard to reach out to someone you don't know and ask for help.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). I also hold the BC-TMH credential which means I have additional training in providing telemental health services. I have a Master's degree in marriage and family counseling. I hold a doctorate in psychology. I'm also a certified personal coach with additional training in weight management. I have extensive experience in the treatment of anxiety and stress management, health and wellness, weight management, personal coaching, motivation and confidence building.

My counseling style is relaxed and interactive. I believe that we each have the power to make positive changes in our lives and I honor and respect a client's right to choose their own path. While I draw from a number of approaches depending on the individual needs of the client, I tend to use a cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused approach. We will develop a treatment plan that is unique to you and the goals you choose to work on.

I live and work in South Louisiana. When I'm not working, I enjoy writing, going to the gym and hanging out with my husband and my silly Black Lab Riley.

I am excited to start this journey of change with you and look forward to helping you in whatever it is that you wish to improve in your life!
