Dana has 19 years of experience providing psychotherapy to adults, adolescents and children. In addition to her work with GCHR, she is a social worker in the Stamford Public School System, where she develops and implements therapeutic and school-wide initiatives designed to educate and support staff in creating trauma-informed interventions and practices. She also provides supervision for clinical social workers in private practice. 

Dana has extensive experience working with adults and teens struggling with anxiety and depression, relationships issues, divorce, and trauma. Her ability to connect with and understand the challenges facing her adolescent clients and their families, enables her to come alongside families to support teens on their journey from childhood to adulthood within the complex and sensory-inundated world we live in today.

She believes these connections empower her clients to find their way toward creating a better quality of life.
