DALENA WATSON COUNSELING  –  Tel. 602 686 3723  –  E. dalena@dalenawatson.com

While the healing process facing each patient is unique, they all share similar challenges in their quest to become sea-worthy.

– In Individual Therapy, everyone is out there on the lake in their own boat… with or without a paddle

– Most do not have a compass or map to chart a course or establish a sense of direction

– Some are taking on water and are in danger of capsizing… none have life vests

Dalena offers a full range of Individual Therapies to enable you to maneuver, stay on course, keep water out of the boat and adjust to changes in the weather. Start The Process, Book Your Session


Individual sessions are confidential and provided in a warm and caring atmosphere. Dalena helps you clarify your needs and areas of concern to develop a unique treatment plan. Together you work toward your goals.


Note: due to the current health situation, all sessions are conducted by telemedicine. Please contact your insurance to see if you are covered for this benefit.


If talk therapy is right for you, great! But if you need or are interested in more, Dalena can help you with a variety of proven techniques including:

“I am transgender and have recently started transitioning. I have only been at this for a few months now, but Dalena has been an absolute blessing in my life in trying to figure myself out. I don’t know how I would have been able to do this without her. She is very professional in her conduct, and very knowledgeable and insightful. She always seems to know what questions to ask and how to get me to find the answers within. If you are trans and looking for a counselor, there is none better.”
