I have been working with Donna for about 4 months. She has helped me a lot. She is very warm and caring. She is a great listener. And is always available for her clients. She even encouraged me to go on to school to pursue my Master’s in Social Work, which is what I’m doing right now. Donna is the absolute best at what she does!
