Dana McGuire has been a mental health counselor at HCBH since 2017. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Wyoming in psychology and got her master’s degree from Adams State University in clinical mental health counseling. While becoming a therapist has been Dana’s main ambition since she was a child, she has worked in a variety of helping jobs giving her quality experience in the community setting. These include doing inclusion work for children with special needs in the school systems, outreach and mentoring for Big Brothers Big Sisters, and event/program coordinating.
Dana appreciates that this profession allows her to use both her science background and creative side together to provide both effective and personalized therapy. Dana believes in a holistic approach, using a variety of evidence-based modalities with a strong emphasis on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). She believes that one’s happiness is greatly rooted in their ability to live authentically, be vulnerable, and live in the present, which she commits to working on personally every day. She works with all types of clients but is passionate and has special expertise in working with couples, anxiety, personality theory, and stage of life issues.
Dana is originally from Colorado but has lived in Sublette Country since 2010. Dana, a proud introvert and recovering perfectionist, lives with her husband and daughter in Pinedale. She enjoys DIY and home decorating projects, traveling to the beach, and helping her husband with their event DJ business in her spare time.
