Dana is amazing! I tried a few different counselors during my trial period and it took some time before I reached Dana. I appreciate the readings and articles that she sends a few times a week. She’s very good with responding in a timely manner. I can go back and forth with her on chat almost every day. She gives constructive feedback and is very supportive. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a therapist who is active and supportive.

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.
