Hi, I'm Dana, a licensed clinical psychologist

And I believe that learning to fully explore and express your thoughts, feelings, and experiences has the potential to change your life forever.

But before we get into me, let’s talk about you

It seems like you’re searching for something more — a deeper understanding, a stronger connection, or maybe just a sense of peace. Whatever it is, I get it. Life throws us curveballs, and sometimes, despite everything looking great on the outside, we don’t feel so great on the inside. Our level of discomfort is no longer acceptable or tolerable, and what we’ve been doing simply isn’t working anymore. We decide we’re ready to put in the work to create a better life for ourselves. That’s where I come in!

Now, I’d like you to know a little bit more about me

I’m Dana, a licensed clinical psychologist with a deep passion for helping people understand themselves and their relationships better. I’ve spent almost two decades gathering knowledge through a three-year fellowship in group therapy, achieving AASECT certification as a sex therapist, and earning a certificate in contemporary psychoanalysis. But, what really drives me is an insatiable curiosity.

Curiosity about how our minds and relationships work, and how our thoughts, feelings, and experience impact our lives. You see, I’ve lived in all sorts of places, from tiny towns to huge cities, and even overseas. It’s taught me how important it is to see things from different angles. That’s something I bring into the therapy room every day, hoping to help you stretch your own perspective and find new ways to engage with your world.

In therapy, I’m not here to give you a list of dos and don’ts. I’m here to explore with you, to understand the ‘whys’ behind your feelings and actions. It’s about uncovering insights together, because, at the end of the day, the most rewarding journeys are the ones where we discover the answers ourselves.

I’ve always been intrigued by the stories people carry. It’s why I chose this path. Whether it’s working through a rough patch, dealing with a life-altering event, or simply wanting to feel more present and connected, I’m here to listen and support you (and your partner if you’re coming to me as a couple!).

Oh, and a fun fact about me? I’ve been a Yogi for 20+ years! It’s taught me so much about the mind-body connection and the importance of staying grounded and present. This practice, with a focus on mindfulness and attention to some Buddhist principals of attachment and kindness, guides my approach to navigating relationships. Yes, I am psychoanalytically trained and the somatic influence of my long-term yoga practice also informs the way I think about and approach the mind/body connection. So, if you’re looking for someone to really get you and help you explore your world in a new light, I might be your match.

What I care about

Get a better understanding of my values.


I take a leaf from Buddhist teachings to approach things with kindness and an open mind, helping us to see things clearly. It’s not about fixing you; it’s about moving forward with more wisdom and lightness.


Life is endlessly fascinating, don’t you think? I approach every session with a sense of curiosity, eager to learn more about you and explore the unique layers of your story.


We’re all works in progress, striving to become better versions of ourselves. I’m committed to helping you grow, challenging you gently but firmly, and celebrating your progress every step of the way.


I’m all about keeping it real. In our sessions, you’ll get the genuine me, and I encourage you to be your true self too. Authenticity and transparency are the keys to meaningful change, after all.

What is the cost of therapy?

Fees are based on skills and experience, specialty and location. My fee is $225. I do hold open some hours for sliding scale. While I do not accept insurance directly, you may be eligible for Out of Network Benefits through your insurance plan, which can help manage the costs of our sessions together.

There are many advantages to working with an out-of-network provider. Such an arrangement offers privacy, freedom of choice in selecting the therapist you wish, and the freedom from insurance-related restrictions such as limits on session frequency and treatment duration. A psychiatric diagnosis is required  for insurance reimbursement, which may become part of your permanent health record. If your insurance plan includes out-of-network coverage, services may be partially reimbursed by your carrier.
