I was feeling a sense of stagnancy: I was in a good job that wasn’t a good fit; I was struggling to get over a relationship that had fractured my heart and sense of self; I didn’t think that I had the power to change these realities beyond a certain point. More than anything, having a weekly time and space to consider how I could go about changing my reality was the key solution to my personal progress. By virtue of doing the sessions, I unconsciously affirmed to myself that I was worth the trouble and expense of transformation.
Beyond that, Dana provided me with a mirror into my psyche and the false stories that kept me bound, as well as a toolbox of exercises to use in service of the new self I sought to create. My experience working with Dana was honest, challenging, and worthwhile. She was always considerate of where I was in my journey, but gently guided me to challenge myself every week. This became possible because she is incredibly open to share her personal experiences and challenges with clients in hopes of demonstrating that they are not alone in their pursuit of being whole and fully human.
