Dannah recently joined the NWAI team as a new student clinician. She values creating a safe, collaborative, accepting, and warm environment that allows clients to flourish and take charge of their lives. Dannah has received training in intervention styles that follow through the evidence-based lens of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure Response Prevention(ERP). Her therapeutic style prioritizes a genuine, empathetic, and interactive approach that is curated uniquely for each individual client.
Dannah received her Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Oregon prior to entering the Applied Psychological Science Master of Arts program at Pacific University.She is currently in her second year of the program and plans to pursue her doctorate upon completion. Throughout her academics, Dannah has developed passion and commitment towards developing her clinical identity and acquiring more knowledge on the impact anxiety can have on one’s life. Given such, she is appreciative of her opportunity to work with NWAI to provide effective therapeutic strategies that guide clients towards freedom from their fears and the ability of positive change.
When Dannah is not at work or school, she enjoys spending time outdoors, getting lost in a good book, and going on walks with her adorable pup.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do."
