Dana is a truly talented yoga teacher. As a somatic psychotherapist in training she has a deep interest and understanding in the human body and how our body, mind and spirit are all connected. She brings this to her profession as a yoga teacher and continuously pushes me to new levels every time I'm in her class, whether that be a more advanced asana or becoming more in touch with my inner needs via movement. She's also a joy to be around, and a lot of fun :)

About

I believe therapy can help you feel more connected to yourself and those around you. In my experience, the best predictor of success in therapy is the relationship built between the client and the therapist. I create an environment where you'll feel supported, understood and safe in our work together. My expertise is helping people who are dealing with anxiety, depression, trauma, loss and issues of identity. I have particular interest in working with young women who are dealing with issues around anxiety and depression. I work with adolescents (14+) and adults of all ages.

About

Perhaps you are struggling with your partner right now, having the same fight over and over again, or longing for an intimate relationship and feeling frustrated in your search. Maybe you are struggling to find meaningful work and a greater sense of direction in life, feeling like you are stuck and floundering. Or perhaps that despite everything you know about healthy nutrition, negative feelings about your body continue to be a source of pain. I work with relationship issues, "quarter life crisis" transition, and body image concerns. I see individuals and couples, as well as adolescents. My approach to therapy is to help people gain access to their truth and authenticity. Through a collaborative and active therapeutic relationship, I endeavor to help clients more clearly identify what they want in life and the barriers that may be standing in their way. We all have developed ways of being in the world that have served us in some ways, but limited us in others. In working with these beliefs and patterns, we allow for something new to emerge, and develop our ability to relax into our authentic self.

About

Life's unfolding path can sometimes be scary and confusing, but you don't have to walk that path alone. I can help ground you in your experiences while we explore the twists and turns which can make life so exciting. Many of my clients say they have difficulty in their relationships as a result of anger, anxiety or depression. These feelings manifest in a variety of ways, some of which may be seen as addictive behaviors or ways of thinking. I've come to understand that these feelings and experiences can be symptoms of old wounds or trauma. I have a deep capacity to hold these feelings in a safe and non-judgmental way. Together we will work to help you learn new ways to diminish and expel anger, anxiety and depression. I also provide support for those struggling with relationship, spiritual, cultural, sexuality and LGBTQ issues. I work in ways which complement a client's goals and personality. This may range from client-centered empathic listening to a more directive or cognitive approach as well as mindfulness and hypnotherapy. In my work with clients, I hold a holistic framework which looks at the primary parts of a person and how they relate to one another. These primary parts are the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual aspects, which make up the whole person. This framework also supports the models of integrative medicine and complimentary and alternative medicine (CAM), by working in conjunction with other practitioners and modalities.
