Amy – Customer Development Specialist

October 15, 2015

I started seeing Dana about a year ago.  I have never in my life been in such a deep, dark place.  I spent days on my bathroom floor crying.  I took pills just so that I could sleep away the days and turn off my racing thoughts.  I was crying so much that I was missing work and I couldn’t function with everyday tasks. I literally had no hope and didn’t want to be here anymore.  I had been going to a therapist when a friend of mine suggested that I see Dana.  My therapist was clearly not helping in the way that I needed to be helped and I was willing to do whatever I had to so that I didn’t hurt so much.

Long story (very) short - I was in a “relationship” with a con artist/narcissist.  I loved him, so much that I gave up my world for 3 years while he was in prison.  I waited for him to come home so that we could start our life, as he promised.  During that time, I did everything I could in order to help him be more comfortable (food, clothes, visits, phone calls, etc.)  I also spent a great deal of time working with the State to get him released.  By the time he came home, I had ruined my credit and emptied my 401K.  He left me 2 months later for a girl half his age and never looked back.  It was so unbelievably cruel and hurtful.   He was mean, selfish and not at all the person that I thought that I knew.

Because of this, I fell apart.  I almost lost my job.  I couldn’t pay any of my bills and had to get help from my parents.  The person who I was planning on starting a life with had left me with no remorse.  I was sobbing every day, had to be taken to an outpatient psych program at a hospital, and lost and gained 40 pounds within a matter of months. 

There is no other word to more accurately describe Dana than “Angel.”  She literally saved my life.  I have no doubt that I would not have made it through this without her.  She came into my life at the exact right time.  She too has been through so much in so many areas of her life and has come out stronger for it!  Because of her I know that I am worthy again.  I know that I deserve better than what I accept for myself.  And it is because of Dana that I would like to follow in her footsteps and help to council others one day.  She is kind, honest, smart and giving.  I don’t have the words to give all of the praise that she deserves.   I highly recommend Dana (and I have) to anyone who needs help or guidance in their lives. She is the BEST.
