Amazing person and councilor. Really has help me a lot!
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.
