Elana Dunn

(MEd, LPC, CPCS)

About Me

I know that life can bring challenges that at times feel like just too much to sort through or overcome on your own.  It brings great fulfillment to me to be a part of helping you to move beyond pain - beyond overwhelming stress - beyond not knowing -– beyond feeling confused. Walking WITH you through the tunnel, all the way to the other side, I learned long ago, that helping people 'change' is what I was called to do. I am humbled to be able to help you.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Certified Professional Counselor Supervisor (CPCS). I obtained a Bachelors' degree from Auburn University at Montgomery in 1995 and a Master's degree from Montana State University-Northern in 1999. Over the past 20+ years, my devotion has never wavered. Helping you to gain peace, direction, feeling whole, safe and secure, and gaining a life anew fuels my professional intentions. 

As I work with individuals, each person is wonderfully unique and requires your own unique approach. Working from the frameworks of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Positive Psychology, and Solution-Focused Therapy, I create a therapeutic approach that is right for YOU. 

Clients over the years have described me as "you keep it real," warm, honest, trustworthy, genuine, transparent, humorous, a teacher, and able to quickly move them forward. I am a mother, daughter, sister, and aunt. I look forward to working alongside you as you change and grow.

Written by A.N. on Sep 08, 2019 after counseling with Elana for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and self esteem

Elana Dunn has a experienced curriculum and is indeed very wise in her advice and coaching. She is a real expert in changing one's perception and that is truly the definition of a miracle. She has the ability to change your mind and to help you overcome things you feel stuck in. I would definitely recommend Elana to anyone feeling like you need a different view and way of dealing with your reality. And I will continue working with her as she helps me growing and empowering myself.
