Sherrill Dana is professional, direct, helpful, and knowledgeable. She has helped me a lot. She adapted to my specific needs and requests. She gives practical advice that is useful.
I live in a small town with a small talent pool of therapists. I've seen a lot of mediocre therapists who did not have expertise in the areas I needed. It is nice to have access to better therapists. I love meeting on Zoom and not having to travel to an office.

She is knowledgeable and has been helpful. Not sure yet if online is preferable to in person. Also don’t like that the only way to contact her is through the site. It would be better for a therapist to be available during emergencies.

Sherrill learns so quickly what your main concerns are even if you don't explicitly say them. She's very warm and comforting and gives wonderful insights.

Sherrill has been very understanding and always takes great notes so we can pick up easily in every session. I never feel rushed or judged during our counseling which relieves a lot of anxiety
