About Dana

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker. I received my Masters of Clinical Social Work from the University of St. Thomas. My approach to therapy is one of compassion and connection. I believe in our inherent need to be seen and heard by others as well as our need to truly see ourselves and love who we are. Part of this work is to help rewrite the unhealthy narratives that become ingrained in our minds. 

I have an eclectic approach that includes the following: Brainspotting and EMDR to address various forms of trauma, as well as mindfulness based practices (including meditation, breath work, grounding skills and body work for strengthening intuition and building trust in self). I also work in the areas of body image, self-love, sexuality, anxiety, grief and loss, family of origin and attachment struggles. 

I particularly enjoy working with couples, adolescents and individuals. I wholeheartedly believe in the importance of providing a space of loving energy and non-judgment. I believe we have a deep need for belonging and connection and I desire to help people resolve struggles so they can feel more connected and authentic with the people in their lives and within themselves. I am honored to share in this journey with you.

“Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary. The people we trust with that important talk can help us know that we are not alone.”
