Today we’d like to introduce you to Dana Harron.
Hi Dana, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I have always enjoyed talking with people and learning their stories. After working in a variety of mental health settings, from the state hospital to the college counseling center, I launched my own practice. My caseload was full before long, but I was still getting calls from people I wanted to help. I took on another therapist to help out… and another, and another. Before long, Monarch Wellness & Psychotherapy was born (or, if you will, came out of its cocoon).
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
I had some unexpected turnover in the middle of COVID while living with my daughter and my in-laws to reduce exposure while my husband did hospital-based work. It was two months before my maternity leave was schedule to start – and they decided to open their own competing businesses in the same building. That was a very stressful and difficult time, but it gave me a wonderful opportunity to learn just how much I can actually handle at once. It turns out it’s much more than I thought.
We’ve been impressed with Monarch Wellness & Psychotherapy, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
We are a small boutique psychotherapy practice specializing in body-mind issues such as trauma, anxiety, fertility problems and eating disorders. We believe firmly in authenticity, relatedness, and holistic care.
