She listens to both you and your partner's concerns and provides constructive criticisms. She is extremely professional yet easy to talk to.

Dana has been an amazing counselor and has guided me to a better state of being and understanding. She takes the time to understand the complex issues and makes them simple enough to understand and face whatever it is you’re going through. I highly recommend her for those in need of counseling.

Dana is a consummate, well-read professional with many years of experience. She has a really nice personality and checks in on child and parent regularly. She also is available for video or phone chats at convenient hours. As the mother of a 17-yr-old (with anxiety & depression), I would highly recommend Dana.
