Damiana and her rescue dog Remi!
Damiana has been providing therapy to people of all ages throughout the Treasure Valley and Eastern Oregon for over thirteen years. She works with children, adolescents, adults and elderly clients. Many of her referrals are from physicians, family law attorneys, former clients and from other therapists with whom she has worked over the years.

Community Connections
One of the distinct advantages Damiana has is having worked closely with many of the psychiatrists and nurse practitioners in the Boise area. Because of her years of experience at Saint Alphonsus Psychiatric Hospital she has a very good understanding of when a patient may need a higher level of care than a family may be able to safely provide. She can help facilitate a hospitalization if that becomes necessary and simplify the legal and emotional complications that may arise.  

She also worked for the State of Idaho in Children's Mental Health for seven years and has extensive experience working with mental health issues in children, foster care placements, pre and post adoption cases and family conflict resolution at third party requests.

Ongoing Education
Damiana meets regularly with a core group of experienced therapists for case consultations and to stay current on mental health research & developments. She is also certified as an EMDR therapist with ongoing clinical supervision.
