I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, having earned my license in 2000. I received my Master’s Degree from Nova Southeastern University in 1997, and have worked in mental health since that time, in both inpatient and outpatient settings.
I have experience with a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, personal growth, and coping with medical illness such as cancer, heart disease, or postpartum depression. I also help couples improve their relationships, or can help individuals work through when a relationship ends. A specialty of mine is blended families, which present with unique dynamics from “intact” families, and helping divorced parents work effectively as a team.
My approach is with empathy and compassion, along with a direct and straightforward style, so that together we can challenge negative, ineffective thoughts and patterns and bring positive change to your life.
- Relationship issues
- Self esteem
- Career difficulties
I also have experience in Stress, Anxiety, Family conflicts, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Anger management, Bipolar disorder

Donna is very understanding of what I’m going through. She is supportive with questions and makes me think about actions to take. She is wonderful help!
Donna responds to my texts quite quickly. Seems to understand my issues and gives me learned advice how to manage them.
Have already encouraged others to use Better Help. And if you aren’t feeling the magic with the first connect, don’t settle. I know easy to say when you are feeling small... and lost, but I did come back and found my perfect counselor... LOVE DONNA
Donna has been helping me a lot figure things out and reduce the anxiety in my life, work through my past, taking the leap of faith and trusting in my relationship. She responds quickly and easily understands my situations. Highly recommend Donna!
Donna is helping me see why I’m struggling with my situation and is asking very thought provoking questions to get me to a better place.
