About me

I am licensed in North Carolina with 18 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, relationship issues, career difficulties, & coping with life changes. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.

Easy to talk to, understanding, nonjudgmental, humorous & knowledgeable are just a few of the ways people describe me.

I have worked with a wide variety of people in mental health agencies, private counseling practices, and several colleges. I blend counseling and coaching in a way that allows folks to understand the root cause of their issues and offer possible solutions, support and encouragement as they make concrete changes in their lives.

Areas where I have experience not listed in the spaces elsewhere are: Procrastination, Impostor Syndrome, Test Anxiety, Fear of Public Speaking and Low Self Esteem.

Outstanding therapist

Written on Jul 31, 2023 after therapy with Donavon for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, family conflicts, and anger management

Donavan's been incredibly helpful the past few weeks helping me work through some long-standing issues. Every week I've brought something new that I've been thinking about or realizing, and every week I leave feeling like I have one more piece of the puzzle slightly in place. He lets me guide where to focus for the day, but always helpfully ties things back to the bigger picture elements we've talked about over the weeks.
