About me

Sometimes all of the challenges in our lives can leave us feeling overwhelmed, anxious and stuck in cycles we are struggling to break. If you are looking for someone to support and help walk you though a difficult time to achieve a happier life, I would love to help. I am an empathic and dedicated Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York who has three years experience working in the field. My past experience has varied in multiple settings and includes working in a middle school, where I serve as a counselor to adolescents, and provide support to their parents and family unit as a whole. I help adolescents and the adults in their life to develop healthy coping skills and increase self-esteem, while at the same time, strengthening family relationships and managing challenging behaviors. Additionally I have experience working in a therapeutic foster care agency as well as in a group counseling substance abuse facility. I have worked with individuals as young as age five through adulthood, and some of the areas I specialize in include but are not limited to; stress and anxiety, self esteem, motivation, grief and loss, trauma, depression, relationship issues, family issues, coping with life changes and communication issues.

My therapeutic approach is a person centered one with a cognitive behavioral therapy focus, meaning that I believe your experience is unique and that you are the expert in your own life. I like to meet you wherever you are currently at in the present moment, no matter where that may be. It is extremely important to me to collaborate with you to tailor my treatment to one that best fits your unique needs. Together we work collaboratively to identify your goals and work at your comfort level to achieve these and tackle life's challenges with renewed insight. I approach our therapeutic relationship with acute sensitivity, respect, multicultural awareness and compassion.

If you are ready to take the next step to face these life challenges, I am here to support and empower you!

Donna is a kind and caring person and makes a great therapist. She makes sure to check on what my goals are for each session and for therapy as a whole to make sure I'm getting the most out of this experience. She is a good listener and offers practical advice to help through any situation

Donna does a good job

Written on Jan 11, 2021 after therapy with Donna for 3 months on issues concerning intimacy-related issues

I've been meeting with Donna regularly for a few months. She has had a very positive impact on me and has helped me manage my stress a lot. When I had Covid-19, she made herself available to talk through messaging even when we did not have a scheduled meeting time. She has made me feel understood where most others in my life do not understand me, and has been able to offer advice that helps me get through every week.
