Clinical Director - Ranch

Dana VanRenterghem, LMSW (She/Her/Hers) graduated from Central College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology and a minor in communication studies; she was also a proud member of the Central College softball team during that time.

Upon completion of undergrad, she spent most of her young career working with at-risk youth in a multitude of roles. Dana has provided direct care to teenagers in multiple residential settings, supported families in reunification and permanency efforts, and advocated for LGBTQ youth in the non-profit realm. She has a passion for helping young people grow as individuals while reconnecting with loved ones who have been estranged.

Dana earned her Master of Social Work degree from the University of Denver with a concentration in mental health and trauma, and strongly believes in the healing power of relationships. Dana finds joy in seeing others reach their full potential and believes that empathy is at the core of meaningful engagement.

Outside of work Dana enjoys nothing more than spending time with her fiancé and to-be stepchildren, spoiling her nieces and nephews, and keeping in touch with old friends. Dana is a marathoner, a professional MMA competitor, and a blue belt in jiu jitsu, who is constantly searching for her next fitness challenge.
