Destany Schadder

Dance Therapy Intern/Lesley University, Cambridge, MA

Life is not meant to be spent struggling alone; a counselor can help those in desperate times. A counselor can help you see the light at the end of the tunnel. If you feel confused, not sure what you should do next, you are going through a divorce, or have anything you wish to talk about without being judged -  I am here to help. I have dealt with adversity while growing up and can help others do so at any stage in life. I have worked with children to adults, and am currently working towards my degree in Dance Movement Therapy. I will be incorporating these studies with Equine Assisted Therapy at ART during my internship, and will concentrate on the holistic idea of incorporating body work with emotional healing.

My clients come from all backgrounds. I can work with couples getting married and those on the verge of divorce. I can work with veterans experiencing PTSD and children with ADHD. My heart has called me to this work because of my past and I would love to help you along your journey. The clients I see are not broken, they just need someone to lend them a helping hand through the tough times they are experiencing. 

I love what I do because it is very rewarding to see others reach the end of the tunnel. If you have thought about getting counseling but are unsure of what it is like, I will make that transition easy for you. I have a sliding fee scale. Reach out to me today and we can schedule your first session.

Allow me to lend you a hand to overcome whatever it is you are facing.
