Hi, I'm glad that you reached out for help. My name is Dayana, and I am a licensed therapist. I am here to listen to you and help you. You can read more about my background, education, experience, and counseling approach below.


I am a licensed independent Clinical Social worker in the state of Ohio (I.1303211). I have a bachelor's degree in Psychology and Sociology and a masters degree in Clinical Social Work from the University of Cincinnati. I am a Board certified Clinical Social worker and a certified pupil services counselor. I am also bilingual and can work with Spanish-speaking clients. I am an experienced mental health therapist. I have experience providing mental health services as an in-office based counselor as well as an in-school based therapist. I have provided services to individuals, couples, children and families. My strong points as a counselor are being able to be a great listener and reading between the lines to understand my clients. I am able to refer them to evidence-based resources to continue their education. I am a highly empathetic person and I do want the best treatment for my clients in order for them to meet their goals and be successful in their daily lives. I do not focus on a client's diagnosis but on the specific person talking to me. I believe we can all achieve progress, no matter where we start. Some of my specialties in therapy are: EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing), trauma focused therapy, family centered therapy, bullying prevention, school related anxiety, and CBT techniques. I enjoy developing treatment plans with my clients, and I have developed these plans for an array of needs such as anger management, depression, postpartum depression, anxiety, social anxiety, generalized anxiety, work related problems, parenting issues, life changes, grief, family relations problems, trauma and stress.
