Hello Community, my name is Dany and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor at Dragonstone Counselling. After the privilege of serving our community as an intern, I am fortunate to now be able to join Dragonstone as an Associate.
I provide a safe, non-judgmental space to compassionately support clients and their personal goals for therapy. My clients include people from diverse backgrounds, genders, sexualities, and cultures. I have experience with a wide variety of presenting problems including anxiety, depression, life transitions, gender and sexuality identification, and various experiences of trauma. I am an especially good fit for those individuals who have had negative past experiences with counsellors.
I integrate therapeutic approaches to best help clients including feminist, narrative, and AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy). I have an MEd in Counselling Psychology from UBC as well as an MA in Early Childhood and Elementary School Education from New York University. I have also completed the Fine Balance Trauma Informed Yoga Training for Yoga and Health Care Professionals.
I am Latinx, born in Colombia, adopted and raised in NJ, and then moved here from Brooklyn. I have a tripod, wondermutt named Lloyd Hobler and I am also an artist and a drag performer.
My rates are sliding scale from $75-$110 per 50 minute session and I am covered by most extended health care plans.
If you have questions or would like to book an appointment, you can do so through phone or email.
