Dana is a rare gem in the world of couples therapy. She is insightful, professional and unique in her ability to help couples understand what actually works in their relationships. Her Imago therapy model (how to "dialogue") is something any couple could benefit from -- whether they know it or not. No doubt, Dana hasn't just saved a ton of relationships, she's helped them realize their full potential. Ours included. Sean M.
Suffering from an irresolvable anger toward each other, we went to Dana who helped us a lot. We are now able to communicate with each other in a constructive and loving way most of the time. We both feel she guided us in our growth as individuals as well as our growth as a couple. We happily encourage people to use Dana as a therapist. Shirley S.
We recommend Dana wholeheartedly. We had heard (and now concur) that she is one of the top practitioners in this area of Imago Therapy, without a doubt the most effective way to help couples communicate and find harmony in their relationship. The thing I like most about Dana is that you leave the sessions feeling you've made a profound connection with your partner. More importantly, you can use what you've learned in-between sessions.. In other words, in real life. Highly recommend her. Anonymous
Dana was very helpful in helping us navigate our relationship and really helped us to learn how to better communicate with other. In doing so many insights into ourselves occurred, about what we want and what effects our desires and reactions from our own pasts as well as the relationship dynamic. Dana has amazing insight and is such a professional, and what I like most is that rather than talking to us she sets it up so we mostly talk to each other, with some input and direction from her when helpful. I recommend Dana most highly. Anonymous
Before going to Dana more than 18 years ago, I had been to several counselors who I couldn't really talk to - I felt I couldn't relate to them or they couldn't relate to me. It seemed every time I saw them we started from scratch. At the time I had been having problems with my teenage daughter. I brought her in to see Dana and she refused to talk. Dana suggested we talk and I ended up going again and much to my total surprise ended up revealing a horrific childhood memory that I had never revealed to anyone. Dana and I saw each other for a few years after that. Three years ago I returned to see Dana when a loved one died unexpectedly. You don't know what you don't know! Over the years I have come to find out parts of myself I didn't even know existed. The best thing I could say about Dana is I felt safe and compelled to open up more than I ever have before and in doing so I have started to love and accept myself just the way I am.
Dana Cole is exceptional. I first sought her help 15 years ago to sort out the issues in a difficult relationship. I found her extremely supportive and nurturing. Her insights challenged me to look deeply at my role in creating the relationship dynamic, and she taught me how to use some important and effective communication tools. My first experience with Dana many years ago was so positive that I returned for more help this past year. I knew that she would be able to get to the heart of the problem quickly, and to help me get on track toward a resolution. Developing more self-awareness is hardly a simple or painless process, but Dana's sensitivity and professional knowledge and skills have eased the way for me. Gloria P.
Dana does couples counselling. Dana is very good at dealing with couple issues. The imago therapy process is very helpful and she handles it well. My wife and i had been through a number of so-called professionals who were unable to get our situation enough under control so that we could have a rational discussion. Dana had us calmed down right away and because of her work, we are now able to communicate with each other in a constructive and loving way most of the time. We both feel she guided us in our growth as individuals and helped us to enjoy life together as a couple. We enthusiastically encourage people to use Dana as a therapist. it is very likely that she will be able to help you. Thomas CS
Dana did a great job in using the Imago techniques to guide us to improving our relationship. She was very insightful and you could really feel that she was very experienced in this work. she created a safe space for us to be open in. We are very thankful for her help. Shawn
Dana is a very experienced clinician with natural compassion--you can feel it's not something she puts on for the job. She has been working with Imago, a very efficient and theoretically rich methodology for couples work, for decades. Before you give up on your relationship, let her try to help! Josh
Dana is a wonderful therapist-knowledgeable, skilled and quite willing to work at the pace that is correct for each person. Her explanation and application of the Imago technique was very practical and easy to grasp. she helped us immensely with some relationship issues that were quite deeply entrenched and painful. We would highly recommend her. Meg R
