Sherrill is a very intent listener and I feel confident in sharing my heart and life with her. She offers concrete tools for my healing and I feel safe to process whatever I am going through

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

My counselor Sherrill Dana, LCPC, has been a constant for me while I’ve been working toward ridding myself of old ideas and habits and finding a beautiful version of myself that I was unaware of. Sherrill puts me at ease and immediately saw me for who I really am and encourages me to just be the best version of that and to not be so hard on myself which is nice to hear.

Sherrill really listens and I’m just a few sessions changed my life. I’m just a few sessions she has told me things family and friends have told me after know me for years. She pays really close attention to detail and helps me greatly and I appreciate her help greatly!

Sherrill is an amazing counselor that I've been able to confide in with all of my daily worries, work through my childhood trauma, etc. She takes her time to truly listen and understand me. I feel safe and heard and I cannot explain how much of a difference she has made in my life as my therapist. I have made progress in my journey to healing and I would not have been able to do so without her. Thank you so much, Sherrill!

Sherrill is spot in amazing. She understands what it means to be human. To hurt, make mistakes, to live...she just gets it without judgement. She implements skills in a way that doesn't make you feel like you're being "fixed." She helps you work through being you so that you can be a better version tomorrow.

Sherrill is wonderful. I feel like she cares about my problems, and truly wants to see me in a better condition. Every session we get right to work on my issues in a comfortable friendly way. My condition has improved :)

After a month working with Sherrill, I feel like I am learning things about myself that I never realized before. Things that have shaped me or my actions and that are contributing to my issues. She leads the conversation well and allows me to chime in and talk when Im ready. She is supportive and understanding. I hope to continue working with her when I am able to afford getting help.

Sherrill is amazing. I've worked with several counselors in the past and none have made me feel heard or supported the way she does. She never makes me feel weak or broken, she has been helping me to build myself up instead. I greatly appreciate her expertise and support

Sherrill has experience in dealing with narcissists, which is what I need as I navigate a stressful divorce. She's supportive and always keeps me on track with where I should try to focus my attention and thoughts. Sessions do not feel drawn-out but rather, purposeful, and she asks good questions that make for dynamic therapy sessions.
