I do this work, because I’ve been there. Everyone's struggle is unique; however, I remember how it felt to be consumed by an eating disorder and crippling worry and sadness. I love being able to help others to find the same freedom that I did.
I'm a licensed clinical professional counselor (LCPC), and received my master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling from Eastern Illinois University. I have experience with a variety of populations and I love seeing people across the age spectrum, from preteens, high school students, to young adults, to middle aged and beyond. Beyond eating disorders, I also work with individuals that struggle with anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD, self-injury, maternal mental health, parenting difficulties, behavioral concerns and relationship difficulties.
I am here to help equip you with the tools to overcome the most difficult mental barriers and empower you to make positive changes in your life. Whatever you may be dealing with, let’s explore it together and get the support and help you deserve.
Important things for you to know: I am a big fan of coffee, messy hair buns, country music and being outdoors. I have a daughter and son, the hardest and absolute best parts of my life. I’m also a dog mom and animal lover. Fall is my FAVORITE season and I love everything pumpkin and embracing oversized sweaters and leggings.
Let’s connect and start your healing journey.
As always, be kind to your mind, be kind to your body.
Dana Baker, LCPC
