Dawne is a fantastic therapist who has helped me with tools and mindsets to navigate my addiction, depression, and anxiety, which has provided me a sense of control. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a cognitive-behavioral mindset, changing your mindset to how you react to mental triggers that would otherwise prohibit you from living a whole and productive life.

Dawnes support and guidance has been invaluable to me in my life and career this year. I know that I would not have achieved what I have been able to, without Dawne this year. I feel seen, supported, heard and her practical suggestions have aided me greatly in my journey this year.
Thank you Dawne

I have learned so much in the few months I've worked with Dawne. She is supportive and patient while I work through grief, trauma, and anxiety. She seems to know instinctively what helps me. I am using the tools she gives me, and the worksheets really help. Dawne is a perfect fit, which was my main concern.

I absolutely love talking to Dawne! I feel like I can talk to her about anything that is bothering me, there is nothing I wouldn't share with her - and I've not felt like that with other counselors before! I also love that Dawne gives the option for video call.

Our first session was introductory but Dawne was very polite and listened to everything I had to say. I am really excited to be working with her and look forward to our next session!

I love having Dawne work with me she's kind and offers so much. If I don't say anything she reaches out. She has talked to me through giving her background on my issues. Overall recommendation 10/10 from me
