Are you feeling weighed down by anxiety or depression? If you find it difficult to manage these overwhelming emotions know you are not alone. You do not have to suffer while trying to ‘figure things out.’ Together, we will work on strategies that allow you to address the root causes of these challenges and build ways to cope that give you your life back.

I am so glad you are here. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and Trauma Therapist in Chicago, Illinois. I have an extensive background working in the field of education and mental health with over 20 years of experience. Before entering private practice I've worked for several of the top therapeutic treatment facilities, served as a crisis management specialist, professional consultant, educator, and senior supervising therapist.

This is a 'judgement-free zone' to express and process; I approach the therapeutic relationship with sensitivity, respect, and warmth.

It is important for me to create a space where my clients feel safe and comfortable. The therapeutic relationship is one of the most powerful and unique opportunities we have to bring about lasting change; I respect the integrity of each client's process. I want for you to feel like you can be transparent with me; there is healing in sharing your narrative.

You are here for a reason; every day is your chance to make your life what you would like it to be.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

I've been to many therapists my entire life. Dana is by far the most patient, knowledgeable therapist I've ever seen.

S.A.·Feb 04, 2021


Dana has been the best therapist I have had in the past 11 years of seeing a therapist. She listens to my concerns and really hears me. She works with me in a way that works best for me and I truly feel respected and understood.

I only used Betterhelp for a short time but Dana Hall's kindness and dedication made me feel hopeful and calm from the very beginning. I would definitely recommend this to others.

M.I.·Jun 03, 2020


Dana has been helping me for about a week and a half. She helped me get through something VERY stressful and I am so thankful for her in that time. She has been a real blessing.

In the short time that I have known Dr. Hall, she has been very open, respectful, kind, and very knowledgeable about what I am going through. She is amazing at what she does, and I love the passion she puts into her work. I really appreciate the great amount of work she is putting in and the time she takes to answer my questions and calls when needed. She truly is a great counselor, and I look forward to working with her in the future.

Listening Skills

She is very knowledgeable and professional. I feel heard!! I had seen a therapist previously but now I realize that not all therapists are the same- My life has gotten back on track after just a few months of working with her. If you are on the fence about starting counseling - reach out to her she really put me at ease. I look forward to our sessions.

I been working with Dana for about two weeks now but she had been very helpful and supportive. She responds in a timely manner and checks in with me if I don’t message her. She’s provided me with some excellent resources and tools. I’d highly recommend her to anyone going through a difficult period in their life!

Dana is a very professional therapist, I feel safe and comfortable every time we talk. Thanks for your help Dana.

D.A.·Mar 21, 2019


Dr. Hall is very understanding and non-judgmental. She sends me all the information she can that she thinks may help me. If she does not hear from me she lets me know she is still there when I am ready. It is so great to know you have some one there ready to listen.
