Dana stated, “Working at Brookhaven has allowed me the opportunity to continually grow as an individual and strengthen my own skills. It has allowed me to be a part of a team that genuinely cares about others. The opportunity to work with women through our empowering program and seeing what they can overcome is truly remarkable. Each day brings it’s own challenges and rewards. One aspect that I particularly enjoy is meeting women from all walks of life, from places all over the globe, and hearing their life stories.”
As part of The Lily Program®, a 90-day treatment for women offered exclusively at Brookhaven Retreat, Program Counselors perform a direct care role and perform a wide variety of client care activities while promoting clients to create emotional self-identity and increase empowerment. Dana continued, “In my role as Program Counselor I assist clients as they learn to enjoy life activities again. They include things I enjoy as well: Zumba, bonfires, art, outings, and going for walks in nature.”
