Therapist in Clark, New Jersey Dana Allegrino, MA, LAC, NCC

Dana Allegrino, MA, LAC, NCC

Educational Background: I earned my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Montclair State University, and my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, with a minor in Cultural Anthropology. Throughout my graduate and undergraduate internships, I gained experience working with a variety of ages and populations, from children and adults with developmental disabilities, to adults of all ages with chronic mental illness. I have over 10 years of experience in Case Management, as well as supervisory experience in the field of Human and Social Services. I completed my internship on an inpatient psychiatric unit providing individual and group counseling to those with mental health issues, including, but not limited to: bipolar, depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, substance abuse, and domestic violence.

Therapeutic Approach: I enjoy working with a wide variety of people. I believe by providing a safe space through compassion, validation, empathy, patience, and support, the counseling relationship will flourish, and my clients will have success in their future endeavors. I utilize a variety of techniques and theories based on the needs of my clients. Some of the therapeutic approaches that I utilize include Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Culturally Sensitive, Eclectic, Existential, Feminist, Integrative, Interpersonal, Intervention, Mindfulness-based (MBCT), Motivational Interviewing, Multicultural, Relational, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), and Person-Centered Therapy.

Some of my favorite activities include: playing drums, traveling, hiking, and reading. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love animals, listening to music, and watching movies.
