I’m an experienced, licensed psychotherapist whose been in full-time private practice with teens, adults, and families for over 12 years.

I'm trauma-informed and attachment-based; this means that I believe our current experiences can improve by tending to earlier relationship experiences.
​I help creatives and sensitive folks go deep in their therapy work so they can experience joyful relationships, better intimacy, and less stress & anxiety. Can we love others if we don’t love ourselves? Well, yes. No one deeply loves themselves all the time.

In my practice, I blend a warm, compassionate and respectful approach along with solid science and practical experience. Clients find that the simple act of talking in therapy provides a wealth of information which in turn brings decisions about what to do. My special areas of focus Include work with abuse and trauma survivors, relationship and intimacy issues, work concerns, culture and identity concerns, & chronic illness and health. I welcome adults and adolescents to my practice, and offer individual, couples and family therapy.

I have experience working with trauma survivors, anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem.
Each day we awake, you have another chance at life. Of course, you can't control into what family you're born, your ethnicity, or your physical attributes; changing your past is beyond your control, too. However, you DO have control over how you respond to your past, and you CAN change the way you think and behave. Understanding yourself, how to approach relationships, and how to cope with life's challenges can be difficult especially if you're unsure of where to begin. I can meet you where you are and support you with empathy and unconditional positive regard. With collaboration, we can work together to help you meet your goals.

My specialties include trauma, problems related to childhood/family issues, sexual abuse/assault, creating and maintaining fulfilling relationships, depression, anxiety, and attachment issues.
I believe that we each have an innate force that drives us towards wholeness and the fulfillment of our individual  potential. However, life experiences can lead to a break from our personal experience of the soul, resulting in a deep sense of loss and isolation from self and others. I work collaboratively with my clients to remove obstacles that block the connection to a deeper experience of the soul and authentic self, and then move towards the realization of a fulfilling and purposeful life. "Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I'll meet you there... " Rumi

My clinical focus includes anxiety, relationship struggles, trauma, and life transitions, to name a few.
Do you feel that something is holding you back? That your best Self awaits? When life presents challenges we can get stuck in emotional ruts and self-defeating thought patterns. Though we put our best foot forward, our relationships can falter, work feels insurmountable, or anxiety becomes overwhelming. You do not need to take this on alone. I will support you to grow into the version of yourself that has the capacity to understand what's holding you back, work through those barriers. We will find ways to be generative and psychologically flexible to give you the confidence to adventure on your path.

Hello! My name is Dana Ferry, Licensed Marriage Family Therapist. I have found for myself an incredible benefit in scientifically proven healing therapies such as meditation and EMDR to treat trauma. This is why I went back to school, so I could study for myself the science of healing and help others heal as well.

It takes support to determine if your reaction is a fight or flight response, retriggered trauma or patterns of shame.
Difficulty can show up in our lives in many different ways. You might experience conflict with your partner, struggle to balance work and personal life, have difficulty experiencing joy; have grief over a loved one or are broken-hearted over a divorce or breakup. Or perhaps you are dealing with a medical condition that is making it difficult for you to do the activities you used to do. When we are struggling in these ways anxiety can be excruciating and depression can be debilitating. You don't have to face it alone. I work with individuals and with couples.

There are many paths to healing and change. The journey is an active one and there is success in simply taking the first step, acknowledging a change is needed. I have worked in mental health services since 1988 and have worked with many different people and issues. I believe that developing awareness, of emotions, thoughts and behavior, is the starting place and that understanding where we come from, what got us here can be helpful, but changing how we feel today is the best way to have a sense of power. I specialize in somatic, or a body based approach to treatment of trauma. Please call or email me for a therapy session today.
