Get to Know Me
Welcome! My name is Dana Goodman. I’ve been a fully-certified Counselling Professional with a licensed private practice since 2009, helping individuals and families throughout the Kamloops area find peace, joy, and wholeness in their lives. The essence of my work is to create a warm and safe environment so my clients can process their painful challenges and leave with tools to alleviate their pain and begin to live vibrant, meaningful lives.
Life is messy and hard, and sometimes our greatest act of courage is just to get out of bed in the morning. Having had a son and husband both die of cancer, I know the wilderness times can be excruciating. I know what it's like to feel like washing your hair is the last straw. But I have also learned that beauty comes from the broken places of our lives. With compassion and a safe place to share, you will find hope, and even joy again.
Counselling is my great joy and what never fails to amaze me is the courage of my clients.
Counselling For Depression and Anxiety
“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” ―Brené Brown
Anxiety and depression are joy stealers. They keep you from moving toward a colourful and vibrant life. Using a variety of tools and techniques, I will help you find peace, joy and harmony so you can live a balanced, joy-filled life.
"The greatest act of faith some days is to simply get up and face another day." —Amy Gatliff
Grief is, perhaps, the most painful experience any of us will ever face. It tears us apart inside and it can feel as if someone literally removed a part of you, and where that part used to be is now an empty, aching spot. For grief to be healed you must walk into that pain and experience all its dimensions. With compassion and sensitivity I can help guide you toward healing so you can find meaning in your life again.
Life can be excruciating. Crushing, in fact. The sheer magnitude of our pain can press down on us until we buckle under the pressure and find ourselves in a very dark place. But God is reaching into the shattered places of your heart, longing to rescue and restore. My job is to remind you of who he is for you and how he sees you.
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." —Jesus
