Founder of NeuroJess Women’s Neurocounseling Center
Are you a young adult woman (or AFAB) questioning if you are neurodivergent? Are you struggling with the stress and anxiety of everyday life? Do feel socially awkward and experience sensory concerns? You compare yourself to others and often feel overwhelmed to the point of feeling like you are having a meltdown. You feel like you’re different from everyone else and don’t fit in (ASD/ADHD?). It’s exhausting feeling out of control, but the good news is, together, we can help you learn healthy coping skills to accommodate your unique needs and regain control over your life and happiness!
Through a neurodiversity-affirming approach, we will work together in helping you learn how to be your true authentic self, without having to mask and change who you are to “fit in” to society. As a neurodivergent woman, myself (ASD & ADHD), I utilize not only my clinical knowledge but also my personal experience to best understand you and connect with you on a deeper level. There is no better feeling than understanding yourself, being heard, and feeling validated; using various screening tools, I can assist you in determining which neurodivergent criteria you best fit into.
I’ll provide you with a safe and soothing therapy space and offer you a variety of simple tools you can use to help you learn how to work with your brain instead of working against it. You deserve to feel heard and be understood. I have a caring & empathetic approach that includes using humor as a tool. I look forward to helping you start your new journey to a happier and healthier life!

Dana’s message: I am an LMFT who was diagnosed with ADHD late in life. I specialize in working with children and families, GLBTQIA++, Neurodivergent folx and trauma. While I am an expert in mental health YOU are the expert in yourself, your family and your child. We work as a true team bringing our gifts together to create change, advocate to ensure needs are met in and out of therapy, and to bring about healing. When I am not working as a therapist I am laughing with my family which includes a late in life diagnose Autistic and ADHD husband, Autistic and ADHD son, and Twice Exceptional daughter. I am also active in our local communities advocating for equity, support, acceptance and systemic change.
