Meet Dana Rideout, LPC

Dana Rideout is a licensed professional counselor (LPC), nationally certified counselor (NCC), and a registered yoga instructor (RYT200) certified with Yoga Alliance.  Dana brings over 15 years of experience into counseling sessions with clients and families.  That same experience follows her into corporate boardrooms and civic organizations when she is asked to speak about the impact of mental health on business productivity, employee well-being and community growth.

Dana has worked as a mental health therapist for more than 15 years.  While working full time as a master’s level high school instructor for students who are d/D and hard-of-hearing, Dana completed her second master’s degree in counseling from Western Carolina University in 2001.  She continued to work with adolescents, hearing and deaf, until 2004.  It was that year she began to transition into mental health and addictions counseling with adults only.  Prior to going into private practice solely, Dana facilitated group therapy sessions for individuals admitted to inpatient psychiatric care, as well as clients seeking intensive outpatient treatment.
