Nice to meet you, I’m Dana
I have found that the most important part of my job is to help an individual or family gain a better understanding of their own values, emotions, and communication patterns. Once we can define our own needs, we can then work to communicate those needs to our support system more effectively. I work with individuals, families, and couples to accomplish those goals. I am a direct and transparent communicator and have found a balance between a nurturing and firm approach.
I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which is designed to help an individual determine if their current thought patterns are helpful or unhelpful and how to challenge the unhelpful ones. I also utilize Prolonged Exposure and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Both models help an individual to process through a traumatic event. I have experience in facilitating Exposure and Ritual Prevention Therapy for Anxiety Disorders as well as Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.
I have worked in a variety of settings including a school, inpatient hospitals, residential treatment, partial hospital programs, intensive outpatient group programming, and outpatient therapy. These various settings have allowed me to gain a depth of perspective and a better understanding of the journey that an individual or family may take when they experience mental health.
