Dana is a Registered Social Worker (RSW) with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (#826024) and a passionate advocate for living a life of personal wellness and resiliency, despite past and current challenges you may have faced.

Dana provides in-person, telephone and secure on-line counselling, and specializes in supporting adolescents, youth, adults, couples and families, addressing anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD, substance use, hoarding and other mental health challenges. Her goals as a practitioner are simple... to support you in addressing and stabilizing current crises, identifying goals, and healing patterns and past experiences that may be stopping you from getting where you want to be.

To do this, Dana uses integrative, evidence-based approaches to counselling, drawing upon Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Emotion-focused Family Therapy (EFFT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI), as well as other trauma-informed, attachment-based and anti-oppressive perspectives.

Dana is a lesbian/queer-identified practitioner, and has worked extensively with LGBTQ populations. Dana is also an adoptive parent, and a person who lives with a disability/chronic pain, and is both personally and professionally aware of the unique challenges these may present.

Dana offers a free 45-min telephone consultation, is currently accepting new clients, and has two office locations in downtown and west-end Toronto, as well as providing secure online counselling through OnCall Health.
