Ranada Dalton


About Me

I am a licensed mental health counselor and life coach in Indiana with over 11 years of experience. I have a BS in Psychology and a MA in Marriage Family Therapy. I have worked with a variety of clients including trauma, sexuality, depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, parenting problems, and life transitioning (empty nest, divorce, new parents, getting married, etc.).

My counseling style is warm, empathetic, client centered, and interactive. I believe in treating people with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and meeting them where they are. I strongly believe in the golden rule to treat people the way you want to be treated. My approach combines Cognitive Behavioral/Trauma Focus Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focus Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Collaborative Therapy, Transgenerational Family Therapy and motivational interviewing counseling techniques. I recognize not every theory works for everyone, therefore, I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

I commend you on taking the steps to seek therapy. This takes bravery and the self-awareness of needing help. I look forward to assisting you on this journey to becoming an enhanced and empowered version of yourself. I look forward to assisting you with your journey!!

Ramada has a way of listening that lets me know she is hearing me. Also a way of exploring ways to help me make better decisions. When I am able to afford more time I will ask for Ramada

We have only had a couple discussions but I feel heard and the support she offers is well received and appreciated. I feel very safe telling her things.

Ranada has been an immense support in the last 6+ months. Her empathetic and kind demeanor coupled with her cheerful humour makes you feel instantly at ease. I appreciate her practical strategies along with the deeper dives into the origins of my thought processes. I couldn't recommend Ranada enough and am very grateful to her.

I started working with Ranada about six weeks ago, and I am so grateful!! She listens with compassion and asks me good questions. She has challenged me to take better care of myself and to implement needed boundaries in my relationships, and has given me guidance and support as I meet those challenges. I’m already seeing the positive impact of my sessions with her. Thanks Ranada!
