Hi, I’m Dajana!
As the founder of Exhale Therapy, I am excited to share both my passion and my story.
Not so long ago, I found myself at an impasse. My job was unfulfilling, my passion-projects had become a chore, and I was anything but comfortable in my own skin. Having fallen into a number of habits that were no longer serving me, it became glaringly obvious that something had to change: namely me.
I felt the weight on my shoulders and nearly hit rock bottom. After months of struggle with the same results, I decided to see a therapist. The change was unimaginable and slowly the weight started lifting. Little by little, I started transforming into the person I always wanted to be and pieces started falling into place.
As far back as I can remember, I found myself continuously drawn towards the helping profession. Seeing so many suffer around me, I knew I wanted to make an impact and somehow help others make a lasting change. Armed with this awareness, I eventually connected with a local therapist and partnered together to grow an incredible practice allowing more services in our community.
Looking back on it, I can’t quite explain what gave me the courage to reach out to a complete stranger. But that first step was a milestone! 2018 was a transformative year for me. The knowledge and experience I’ve gained have served me in both my personal life and my professional endeavours. I found a way to transform my discomfort into something extraordinary: and that’s how Exhale Therapy was born.
I have learned that no matter how dark or uncomfortable things can get, there is always light and hope.
