Dana Sperling


23 years of experience

Hi. My name is Dana. I have been a Social Worker for over 20 years and have been working under my Clinical license for the last 11 years. I attended Kent State University where I completed my BA in Psychology and then attended California State University, Long Beach where I completed my Masters in Social Work. Making the decision to find a therapist is the hardest step to take. It takes courage to make yourself a priority and to acknowledge that you need help. Now that you've come this far, allow me to help you navigate whatever is getting in your way of living your best life.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session together, we will start with brief introductions. I will learn what brought you to therapy and what you hope to achieve in therapy. Together, we will establish goals and break down the barriers for you to achieve those goals.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I am gentle, supportive and non-judgemental. I create a safe space for you to be honest and vulnerable. I will celebrate your achievements with you and support you on days that are more challenging.

My treatment methods


I believe that everyone responds to therapy differently and there is no "One size fits all" treatment method. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
