Who Am I?
I'm Lana Royle, LCMHC
I became a couples therapist, and started largely due to my own relationship experiences. I grew up with parent’s who consistently modeled a loving and committed companionship with one another. I witnessed situations with them that represented healthy conflict resolution, effective communication, and two people that ultimately were emotionally attuned and connected to one another.
As I got older, I started seeing other relationships that didn’t seem to be healthy. My perspective started broadening, and I saw many couples I knew, struggling to keep their relationships afloat.
As I became a young adult, I began my own dating life. From there I entered short-term dating experiences, long-term commitments with partners, and everything in between. I struggled in many of these relationships, and would often ask myself, what the right tools were in making a relationship work in a healthy way.
I became more and more fascinated with why some couples seem to have what it takes to have a happy and fulfilling relationship, and why others seemed to chronically struggle to communicate, to create trust, and to build intimacy and passion. I wanted to know the recipe for success so I could help others, so I began to further study it. As a therapist, I knew I not only had a natural passion for helping others in navigating difficulties, but even more so with couples and the hardships they face, and how they navigate their way through these struggles.
Through my passion in working with couples, I have studied EFT (Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy), and the Gottman Couples Methods. Through my own experiences, and my extensive trainings, I have developed my own unique methods for helping couples through premarital and marital relationships, to work in navigating difficult patterns that develop in relationships.
I approach this therapeutic process as a “working together” experience. Together, we will work on recreating the foundation as a couple and work on getting back to a state of connection and safety with one another.

What People Are Saying
“I found Lana when I was looking for someone to help me with the grief I was experiencing, after losing my brother to cancer. Even though the death had been several years back, I felt stuck in my life, a d I just couldn’t figure out how to be “me” again. I felt like I had lost myself. Lana helped me understand that my feelings were valid and that nothing was wrong with me. She helped give me hope, that I could get my life back, just in a different way. I have worked a lot with her, on becoming truly happier and I am forever grateful.”

“Lana is an amazing therapist, and I will feel forever indebted to her, for helping my husband and I through a difficult time. Lana showed compassion when we sought her out, after my husband and I separated. We didn’t know what to do. We both were equally lost and feeling a lot of anger and sadness. We started working with her individually but also did couples sessions. We were able to figure out what had gotten us to this tough spot with one another. We were able to work toward better understanding it and were able to move forward with one another and rekindle our relationship. We are so very grateful for Lana’s help and direction during a very tough time.”

“Where to start..I was quite lost when I decided to take the plunge. I had thought about doing therapy for quite a long time but I wanted to get someone that would click with me. I had never been to therapy, and quite frankly it frightened me. I finally decided to do it. Lana was the therapist I found, through a friend of mine. She was direct with me but also seemed to understand where I was coming from and didn’t use judgement at all. I was able to unload years of worries and stressors related to bad relationships, chronic health problems, and the loss of several jobs. It had all built up over the years, and I knew the pile was so big that it was getting in the way of me living my life to the fullest. I was able to process layers upon layers of struggles and defeat. Throughout my therapy course, I was able to fully release it all and finally let it go. I feel like I have let go of so much baggage that was only holding me back and impacting my relationships. I have a deep gratitude for what Lana taught me and skills we worked on to change my mindset on a daily basis. I am beyond excited for my future and am so thankful for Lana and her expertise!”

“A friend of mine, referred me to to see Lana as I couldn’t seem to get past a miscarriage I had had recently. Even though I had never given birth to this child, I felt like a hole was left in my heart, after I miscarried my child. I felt like it was an unexpected grief and one that seemed like a lot of people didn’t understand. I felt right away, like Lana understood it and normalized my loss, instead of me feeling like nobody would ever understand this sadness. I needed to feel like my sadness was ok, and I soon learned that I didn’t need permission to feel the way I felt. I loved working with Lana and still know if I need help, I can call her.”

“I decided one day I needed to get a therapist, to help me work on some areas in my life and to focus on overall life direction. I started working with Lana and she really was able to help me identify some areas in my life that were challenging. I was able to process and explore areas I hadn’t looked at, in a very long time. Lana was non-judgemental and supportive, but also challenged me. I needed that balance in a therapist. I am so happy I was able to work with such a skilled and caring therapist, when I did.”
