Dana Russo, LCSW, LPHA 






As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), I have been working in the mental health field since 2008, and as a clinician since 2014. I have a Master's of Social Work from Florida State University and have experience working with children, adolescents and adults through individual, family and couples counseling,.  My work focuses on mood disorders such as depression and bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, trauma and PTSD, and personality disorders.

I use a range of clinical approaches in my practice, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and trauma-focused care of ARC, and solution-focused treatment. In the session, we will work on past and present struggles to set attainable goals to address, learn to recognize patterns in mood and behavior and learn new coping strategies.  I want to help people reach their fullest potential. I am interested in mental health and the complexities of the human mind.
