About Me

Welcome,

It takes courage to reach out and I appreciate the energy it may have taken for you to do so today.

I am a collaborative therapist with expertise in the areas of trauma, depression, anxiety, PTSD, infidelity and self-esteem struggles. I work in partnership with you to reach your identified therapeutic goals with the application of evidence-based therapies, including EMDR, as appropriate. I strive to build a foundation of trust and encouragement to help you process the experiences that have led to challenges in your daily living. Being that safe, unconditionally supportive space for you to confidentially share your story is my goal.

A little about me. I am a mom of four amazing adults and one bellowing cat. I love what I have chosen to do for a living, along with reading, baking, making pottery and puttering around in my 'garden' in which I have a Ph.D. in growing weeds. I am licensed in Florida, am a Qualified Clinical Supervisor for Registered Clinical Interns and a Board-Certified Diplomate in Clinical Social Work (BCD). I have been practicing in the fields of Psychology and Clinical Social Work since 2001.

I’ve spent a couple months now with her and she really has helped me more than I think she does. Dealing with my gamut of trauma I can say that she is very professional and respectful and compassionate. I recommend her greatly. Thank you Dona!

Hello, had the pleasure of meeting Dona Davis as I was searching for
A councelor for my daughter and I. Dona's carying personality was shinning bright. She is genuine, caring, and formed a trusting realtionship with me immediately. Unfortunately for insurance purposes was not able to continue receiving her valuable expertise. Wish that was NOT the case , so glad I met her. I am sure her patients are extremely happy to have her. I would definitely vite her as "Most Valuable".

This is my first experience with therapy and I couldn’t be more pleased with Dona. She understands exactly what I want to work on and is incredibly perceptive. She is always very professional, yet extremely caring and is exactly what I was looking for in a therapist.
