About Us

We are wise women…

Aiming to become wiser.

Meet the retreat leader, Dana Garberg, MSW, LICSW owner of Lake Effect Psychotherapy Group.

Dana is a psychotherapist from Duluth, Minnesota. Before becoming a psychotherapist, she previously owned and operated a strawberry farm. Her first career as a young woman was working for the telephone company in the era it was still called Northwestern Bell. Dana has two adult children and is lucky enough to have one dear granddaughter.

Wiser Women wisdom says you can’t get too much of Lake Superior and all her gifts, sunrises and sunsets, rainbows, waterfalls, and adventures. 

Dana’s goal is to help other women her age live life to the fullest and face challenges with dignity, strength, and joy.
