I really appreciate that after I spend (a lot) of time going on about many things, Mr. MacLeod can very quickly synthesize the issues and offer good concrete feedback and suggestions.

My husband and I were going through a rough patch of life and it was bleeding into the marriage. Don really helped us get back on track to communicating and understanding one another again. He listens and gives real world examples there’s no blame game and there’s always room to be better for our sevens and spouse.

Donald has been key in my life. With him I have unlocked a lot of things that without his help I wouldn’t have tried to find out on my own. He’s literally the best! I am still learning so much about myself though our sessions.

Donald is a real blessing to me. He is very supportive and keeps a no-judgment zone, so you're very comfortable sharing with him. Most of all...he's been that trusted friend-in-my-head that can help me make sense of what I feel is my complicated world. But he's kind and sensitive enough so I can receive what he has to say. Some therapists or with too firm or too passive, and you end your session still unsure of yourself.

I'm so glad to have Donald on my self-care team!

There are not enough words in the vocabulary to define how amazing Don is; he is engaged, he has an awesome sense of humor and our sessions feel so productive and not at all pretentious. I truly enjoy my sessions with Don.

Anyone would be fortunate to have Don as their counselor. From the very beginning I felt safe to share things with him I'd never shared with anyone before. He's experienced and meets you where you're at in a way that invites you to grow.

Don has been a godsend. He’s exactly the therapist I needed. He doesn’t mince words and is very honest, while also making sure that I understand that he is there to help me in any way possible. He has a way of helping me acknowledge and accept things I haven’t been able to, while also being comforting and letting me know I’m not alone.
