Dawn Vollink, LMSW

Licensed Master’s Social Worker

“I’ve always been fascinated by people. Both the commonalities we share and the uniqueness of each individual make every day interesting for me. I see that often we struggle the most when we try to make ourselves be someone other than who we genuinely are or we keep things inside too much. I also know that one of the most healing aspects of therapy is the dynamic of the therapeutic relationship, so finding a therapist who is a good fit is essential.”
