Dana Pitts is a Licensed Professional Counselor with more than twenty years of experience working with a wide variety of clients and issues. She works with children ages five and up, adolescents, adults and families to help identify and implement goals with lasting positive impact in their lives.
Dana’s approach to the counseling relationship is collaborative and supportive, working with each client to complete a unique plan to identify and implement self- identified goals to improve their lives. This often involves assisting clients with learning and mastering new tools to successfully navigate interpersonal and family conflicts, address ineffective behavior patterns, and navigate difficult life transitions.
Dana uses play and activity therapies in her work with children ages five and up, and has extensive experience working with children who struggle with the aftermath of trauma or abuse, emotional regulation, or traits related to diagnoses on the autism spectrum.
Her work with tweens and adolescents includes those dealing with depression, anger management, suicidal ideation, cutting behaviors, eating disorders, mood regulation and developmental transitions. With adults, her extensive experience includes parenting issues, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, grief, mood regulation and issues surrounding abuse of all kinds.
Dana has lived in Fort Worth most of her life, growing up in a military family and graduating from Arlington Heights High School. In her free time, she enjoys travelling, Broadway theatre, and baking (and sharing the fruit of her efforts with others!). She is excited to meet you and begin building a collaborative and worthwhile relationship!
