I am a warm, non-judgmental and genuine therapist. My goal is for you to feel like you’re talking with a trusted confidant. I want you to feel comfortable, supported, and safe so we can work to make your relationship better. Regardless of what you tell me, it won’t surprise or scare me or cause me to judge you.
Dana is a gifted, compassionate, and practical therapist and the founder of The Relationship Place.
Dana proactively sought pre-marital help with her partner before they were married. They worked together through the communication exercises in John Gottman’s book, The Seven Principles to help ensure their marriage would be a success – and it has been!
Dana has achieved the highest level of training possible in the Gottman Method of couples therapy. She has special interests in working with all clients, including those who live out-of-the-ordinary lives or have alternative relationships.
Reconnecting couples in crisis is my specialty, and helping couples realize their relationship goals is my passion.
I believe that “Your most important relationship is with yourself.” In order to change and grow, we need to foster an attitude of curiosity, acceptance, honesty, and compassion. Life doesn’t come with an owner’s manual: each of us is engaged in a process of discovery and meaning-making.
I have felt a passion for helping others and encouraging growth for as long as I can remember. After working with families who have a child with a developmental disorder, I became enamored with assisting couples in creating a collaborative and caring relationship to foster an environment of abundance.
I believe that a secure relationship with yourself is essential in creating lasting and healthy relationships with others. I center my work around the belief that the human experience is truly fulfilled by the connections we have with both ourselves and the people in our lives. I care deeply about being a guiding hand to assist others in reaching goals and meeting the best version of themselves.
I have experience working with individuals, couples, and families in outpatient settings.
My work has focused on helping clients manage anxiety, depression, trauma, crisis issues, grief, and loss, among other concerns. I am passionate about working with couples who want to restore trust, build a stronger connection, foster greater intimacy, manage conflicts, improve communication, and prepare for future life transitions such as parenthood or marriage.
The way people foster connection with one another has always fascinated me, especially in intimate relationships. In school, psychology was one of my favorite subjects, but I was unsure of how to incorporate my interests into a career I was excited about.
After a few years of unfulfilling work in higher education, I discovered the field of marriage and family therapy and began my journey towards becoming a couple’s therapist. I was particularly drawn to the realm of sex therapy because sex is often viewed as “taboo” despite the fact that most people engage in sexual activity at some point in their lives. Just as you would let someone start driving without passing driver’s ed, I believe we should be preparing people for successful intimate relationships by providing accurate and inclusive sexual education.
We’re different. We believe that if someone has the courage to reach out for help, we should be here to help them. Every step of the way - not only in the Counselor’s office, but from the initial phone call. We’re here to lend an ear - we’re here to help - and we love what we do.
Coming from a performance background, it was always my job to understand where someone is coming from, even if I may not personally resonate with where they’re at. To bring a truthful performance to the stage, you need to have a lot of empathy. I feel like The Relationship Place is the perfect organization for me to work for, because I truly care about people, and I want to help in any way that I can. This job gives me access to such wonderful resources and such amazing people. I’m so proud to be part of The Relationship Place team.
I feel that the Therapy/Counseling experience should start right at the beginning. Some offices will send you through a bunch of robots, pushing numbers to get through menus, only to end up not talking to any real person by the end of the call. Others might have someone answer the phone, but they may only seem interested in taking information, or getting their job done before closing time.
Hi! I’m Bianca, one of the friendly faces you’ll see when walking into our office. I’m so excited to talk with you! Working at The Relationship Place… we really are amazing. It’s further proved to me that your purpose at work needs to align with your purpose in life. I strongly feel my purpose is to help people & I know we make a difference being that open ear for you, our clients.
I understand not one single approach works for every individual, and by knowing that, we aim to be the best version of ourselves for you. There is a real person on the other end of that phone. We get that. We’re here for YOU.
So, take the first step. Call us. Take comfort in the fact that we are here to listen without judgement, speak without prejudice, and help without entitlement. You’re the real rockstar, we’re just here to help remind you. All our clinicians are incredible so let us set you up with your perfect fit.
I feel that every person I meet is a new relationship. We build relationships here.
I am one of the staff members that will answer your calls with compassion and kindness. I understand how important my job is to create a welcoming atmosphere for our clients and therapists. Whether you’re coming as an individual or with a partner/group, we have someone here for you. You work collaboratively with your therapist to make sure all your needs are met. Reach out to us so we can help. We want you to call with confidence that we’ll hear you out and fit you with the right therapist. We will ensure you have the best experience not only walking in our doors but also when you leave. I love what we do here at The Relationship Place, and I look forward to welcoming you!
We care a great deal and will not hesitate to take that extra step so that you can feel confident that you are in good hands.
Hi there, I'm Jalitaa and I'll most likely be the person on the other side of the phone whenever you reach out to us! I understand calling in can be nerve wracking, and I just want to say that I am here because I am a real person wanting to help other real people like you. We all have complex lives layered with unique situations, and it's okay to realize that everyone, and I mean everyone, needs a little help sometimes. And that's exactly what we're here for.
We care a great deal and will not hesitate to take that extra step so that you can feel confident that you are in good hands. Not only do we strive to foster and build connections here, but we also give you long-term tools to invest in a stronger future. I believe that compassion and genuine kindness can get you far, and I am ecstatic to provide that for you.
