It was an absolute pleasure to host you on your recent webinar. The information you shared was invaluable. Thank YOU, for taking the time to share your passion and insights to equip the Sexual Risk Avoidance Education field!


Over the past couple of years my daughter has been blessed to work with Dana Bowling to support her growth in the areas of emotional regulation, anxiety, body awareness, peer interactions, and so much more! She is well trained in implementing trauma-based strategies & is very creative in her approach & activities. She has helped my daughter build self-confidence and truly cares about her & my family. We have been so thankful for her flexibility & willingness to keep trying even when my daughter has been challenging during sessions. She is a gift to our family & community.

The tools and wisdom Dana Bowling has shared with our family have been a total game changer. We have seen profound changes in both our parenting and in our foster children’s coping strategies. She helped us better understand trauma and continues to equip us with the tools we need to support the children in our home. We would highly recommend Dana and her training for anyone wanting to better understand how to parent children with trauma. We couldn’t have done our foster care journey without her!

When we first came to Dana, we were struggling with behavioral issues with our daughter and were at a loss as to what could help.  We had visited other counselors in the past but experienced little to no change in our relationship with our daughter. After our first session, Dana identified a clear issue and set before us a path of healing and connection for our family that resulted in huge changes in behavior and connection.  As a family we are continuing in our path of healing that Dana placed us on and know that she is always there as a resource for us when needed.
