Donna is so wonderful, has been able to pinpoint my concerns as they ebb and flow. Navigating work, school and my family/social life has been tough but Donna has given me useful tools and mindset to keep me level and positive.

Donna is well versed in therapy and is able to gently guide me back to my goals without ever being dismissive. Evenings work best for me and being able to meet then is wonderful and I don’t feel that I am imposing or being rushed. It wasn’t easy to ask for help and I was initially reluctant but Donna is really welcoming. I feel I can now trust her completely with my personal information and that she is a person of true integrity!

Very much enjoying the journey so far.
