Hello! My name is Donna Cummings and a I am Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist Associate. I received my Master's Degree in 2015, after having worked in the mental health field for 9 years. I have experience working with addiction issues, depression, anxiety, building life skills, and promoting self esteem, self compassion, and other self worth behaviors. I utilized Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy. I believe in providing support, compassion, and therapies, as well as understanding diversity and cultural awareness in assisting my clients in reaching your life goals.
I began my career in mental health after realizing the lack of mental health services available in my community. I feel that there is a need and that everyone deserves to be able to access these services that can enhance their daily living activities and self care. I also feel that there needs to be a move towards normalizing counseling and removing the stigma historically associated with counseling . I will provide a confidential and nonjudgmental setting to assist you in moving towards your goals.
I look forward to working with you.

I've had about 3 sessions with Donna now and I already felt completely open and relaxed after the first one. She's a wonderful listener and has already succeeded my expectations for what I wanted (and needed) in a counselor. I look forward to our upcoming sessions and always end with a smile on my face. I'm so thankful Donna was selected to be my counselor. What a gift!
I appreciate that Donna always got back to me in a timely manner and that we were able to talk often. I enjoyed the worksheets she sent me and I always feel better after we've talked. I appreciate feeling heard, understood and encouraged while receiving helpful tools on moving forward.
Donna is great! I look forward to chatting with her because of the fact she is so personable and patient. It is rare to see a women of color sitting across the sofa from me. She is someone who gives sound perspective on the way out of grief and trauma not only based on her expertise but base on her life’s journey also. So grateful!
I really appreciate Donna's help and support. She is really good at helping me to understand my feelings and listens to my concerns, offering advice for new techniques to try and help my anxiety and depression and shows genuine interest and concern with events and feelings in my life
Donna is a great listener. She gives very helpful tips and feedback. She provides helpful worksheets for me to work on and she checks on me regularly. For personal reasons I have to stop counseling for now but when Im back again I would love to work with Donna again.Thank you so much for everything!
She's very sweet and is willing to converse with me about deep topics.
I have really enjoyed working with Donna. She is warm and friendly but professional, never makes me feel judged, and is constantly reassessing to make sure we are addressing the things that are really bothering me.
She listens and understands.
I am extremely happy that I am able to work with Donna Cummings! I have had different therapists in the past and although it was nice, it wasn’t a great fit. It’s not easy to find a therapist you can connect with and I was able to connect with Donna from the start. Donna is a great listener, she gives great feedback, she provides helpful worksheets for me to work on after every session (which I love) and she checks on my entries regularly. I can definitely see improvement in myself since I’ve began working with her. Thanks Donna!
