As a servant to the Church, Dana has served as an assistant youth pastor, participated in multiple mission trips to the nations, and leads worship when called upon. Dana considers the most important aspect of her life to be her steadfast faith and her biggest accomplishment to be her successful marriage to her best friend, Will, who is a United States veteran. Naturally, due to her familiarity with military life, Dana expresses a deep appreciation and fondness toward our service members.
Dana utilizes talk therapy, cognitive behavioral concepts, and Gestalt techniques which are traditional clinical counseling practices. As a licensed therapist, Dana maintains ethical boundaries regarding personal belief systems and allows clients to maintain complete autonomy, meaning she will not incorporate her Christian beliefs or practices in counseling sessions without the client’s permission.
