Dana Girard, Psy.D., CPT, CRRT

Clinical Director


Hello, I'm a licensed, clinical psychologist and a graduate of the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, CA, where personal growth is valued.  After licensure, I studied with Don Hadlock, LMFT, founder of The Process Therapy Institute and with Jon Connelly, LCSW, Ph.D., founder of the Institute for Rapid Resolution Therapy.  During the past ten years, I've worked in a variety of clinical and leadership positions (i.e.,  adolescent residential, adult residential, and a rape/trauma program), worked with diverse disorders (i.e., trauma, substance use, hoarding, adjustment disorders, anxiety, and depression), and worked among various culturally diverse populations. 

As Clinical Director my role is to encourage and facilitate your journey of self-discovery once free of substances and processes that have kept you stuck.  As a Process Model and Rapid Resolution trained therapist, I respect, trust, and follow your process into and through your unresolved issues without agendas about you. Therefore, I can remain neutral, empathetic, and supportive to whatever situation arises in your journey toward self-fulfillment.  As a result, you transcend your negative experiences and develop self-awareness.  

Welcome to the Los Gatos Recovery Center's Residential and Outpatient Program. I look forward to supporting your success story.
