Hello! My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating every individual with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I also recognize how important building rapport and trust is along with the client sensing and feeling that we are sharing information in a non-judgmental and safe environment.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

I came to Better Help at a very low point in my life and Donna was fantastic. She helped me figure out how to cope with what I was feeling. She helped point me in the right direction of what I needed and encouraged me to reach out to my doctor when we realized I likely needed medication. I'm very thankful for Donna for helping me through the past couple of months.
