Dawn Gaden


About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), practicing in Michigan for over 18 years. My experience comes from a range of opportunities such a county jail working with inmates and addiction, private practice setting, as well as non profit counseling offices. I have been in private practice as a sole practitioner for over one year.

I am certified in Complementary Medicine and Wellness, a Registered Yoga Teacher, and life coach. I bring to my clients a solution focused approach to health and wellness that merges coaching, mindfulness, and holistic health. I have a passion for positive psychology, the power of positive thinking and an active approach to create lasting sustainable change in your life.

I am also an intenSati Leader, trained in NYC in November 2016. intenSati means mindful intention. It's a practice that puts affirmations into action - it's the real CBT! The practice combines NLP, movement, meditation, goal setting and using positive powerful words in order to gain understanding of old limiting beliefs and how to build the foundation to create a new and powerful belief system that allows you to create the life you love.

I look forward to working with you on this journey of self discovery!

Great therapist. It's my first time doing this sort of thing. I think it's going well. She knows what she is doing. I'm learning a lot.

I absolutely love working with Dawn. She is the perfect mix of supportive and realistic, and makes me feel like I can achieve my goals through specific steps. The resources she provides for outsides our talks are also incredibly helpful. Highly, highly recommend. Thank you, Dawn!
