Meet Dr. Dana McNeil – As Seen In – CanvasRebel Magazine

Founder and Therapist of The Relationship Place, Dr. Dana McNeil PsyD, LMFT, has been spotlighted in a recent Stories and Insights article by Canvas Rebel Magazine. Tracing the roots from the inception of her practice to her passions and challenges in the profession, Dr. McNeil shares her amazing journey.

When asked about how she became an expert in her business, Dr. Dana revealed:

 I aim to give my clients a unique experience that other therapy group practices don’t offer to their clients. We are a niche within a niche. We practice an evidence based type of therapy mixed with a boutique customer service experience. Our therapists really care about our clients and meet them where they are at authentically, empathetically, and are real people. We think outside the box when it comes to couples therapy. We are here to break the mold about stereotypes and shame based interventions. Our clients are part of the family.

She also shared the things she loves doing about her work and her learnings from them:

Oh so many things! What I learned has been reinforced by my life experiences. Everything happens for a reason and I probably wont want to accept or even truly understand in the moment why it has to happen. When I am able to slow my mind down, keep my goal in sight, get out of my stories about how things should go and believe the universe will take care of the details then I don’t have to feel so frustrated. I wish I had known back in the day that when events, peoples, and details didn’t go the way I expected or envisioned. In other words, embrace the lack of control!
