Im a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Therapist licensed in Colorado with more than 14 years of experience working with adults, and families in a variety of settings that include residential treatment centers, emergency rooms and in home family therapy. I graduated with my Masters Degree in Social Work from the University of Denver in 2005, and have been helping people therapeutically ever since.
I have worked with people with a wide range of concerns including various types of trauma such as emotional, physical and sexual abuse, anger issues, depression, grief and loss, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems. I have worked in family and individual settings, so I have experience in helping people in many different situations.
My counseling style is open and honest and experiential . I am compassionate about people that I work with and will use every strength in an individual to help them through challenging situations. I do not believe there is only one way to solve a problem so using creativity and humor is a big part of how I treat clients.
My approach combines utilizing many different modalities that include , trauma-focused, cognitive behavioral and narrative models but tailoring approaches to meet the needs of the client is most important to me.

Donald is kind, caring, non-judgemental, thoughtful, considerate, personable and approachable. I would recommend him to anyone who is struggling with anxiety or depression from any cause.
Donald listens and has very good advice and supports you in every decision.
I have been with Donald over a year and a half and i continue to be happy with his expertise. I highly recommend him and i frequently recommend betterhelp online to people who all me for help.
Donald is a very caring professional. He helped to remind me of my self-worth and that I deserved better than the situation I was in. He helped me work through many issues associated with a difficult divorce, and estranged relationship with my two adult daughters. There have been many changes in my life and Donald has helped me through all of the curves life has thrown at me. Thanks to his listening and guiding, I realized the way I deserve to be treated by people.
Donald’s been great in helping me work through things and dealing with a number of personal issues
Donald is an incredibly intelligent person and experienced in many fields, but that's easy to say on paper. In practice he is a kind and caring ear when you need it; and a clear, precise voice of guidance when you don't know where to go. I am very happy I was able to work with him.
Donald has been my therapist for a few weeks and it's already helping. Totally worth it!
Donald has been one of the most incredible therapists I've had in a long time. He actually makes me feel great about myself when I need it, and he's beyond the call. Excellent service.
Donald is helping me get through some of my darkest days. He understands the issues and it's nice as a woman to understand a man's perspective. He helps me understand my own issues. He is open and honest and makes me think for myself. I have friends but get different advice that is biased.
I really feel comfortable talking to Donald. I'm excited to continue working with him.
He is a very good counselor, he is able to put himself in my shoes and relate to me on many levels. He is most definitely helping me in ways that others may not be able to.
Donald is slowly but surely helping me become the person I want to be! He always has the best advice with whatever is going on. He's great!
Donald is a fantastic individual!
Donald has been very kind and attentive.
I feel like I can't say enough positive things about Donald. He is attentive and responsive and has been an incredible help to me during a low point.
My experience has been really pretty good so far. I like the website and the sessions. It's definitely been a more relaxing experience than when I was seeing a therapist in person.
Donald has been such a significant help to me in my journey of progressing in my goals! He's very understanding and always has a way to help me through any rough spots that I may be having!
I would highly recommend Donald! He is very positive and always has great questions to help me see my thoughts and experiences in the light of reality. Help me work through addiction, relationships, anxiety issues. He is very easy to relate to and talk with, and I really enjoyed working with him over 6 months.
I always look forward to my talks with Don and feel like I have made great progress towards increasing the quality of my mental health. I feel comfortable talking to him about anything and don't think I would have made as much progress with someone else. I feel like he genuinely cares about what is happening in my life, which encourages me to share it.
I've only been working with Donald a short time, but it has really helped me.
Donald is great at talking with me and helping me understand things that I normally couldn't see.
Donald is really helping me a lot though hard times and I really appreciate it! He is a great specialist.
Donald has really helped me a lot and he definitely knows what he's doing. I feel comfortable telling him anything.
Donald is calm and full of good advice. Would recommend to anyone needing to work through something or just to have someone to speak to about your feelings.
Donald has been really really awesome. I feel connection and support with him. He has a way of being able to say what I feel in a way that brings me greater understanding of (and subsequently compassion towards) myself.
Donald is extremely good at what he does. He takes the time to get to know you so that he help you in the best way possible. Thank you Donald :-)
Donald has been so helpful and I feel great after we have sessions.
