Dr. Curran has been great to work with! She makes me feel comfortable and is very insightful. I share my journal entries with her so she can understand me better, which allows her to understand how to steer our sessions. She’s made my experience with therapy very comfortable.

Donna is very understanding but also gives me scenarios to think about. She is interested in my concerns and offers encouragement. I enjoy having her as my therapist!

Donna is always great in helping me process something no matter the topic even if it’s uncomfortable. She helps myself grow by working through the problems I feel in my life.

Donna Curran is the best therapist I’ve had. She is brilliant and insightful and such a quick thinker and analyzer. She quickly sees things from all angles and she works with me to come up with an understanding of my issues.

Donna is wonderful. She is kind, reassuring, comforting, supportive and professional. Donna taught me how to manage my anxiety and stress, and helped me gain more confidence in myself. This has been a life changing experience, all thanks to Donna!

Written on Sep 02, 2021 after therapy with Donna for 7 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, anger management, and career difficulties

My husband and I were having some marital issues due to toxicity in our upbringing. Alcoholism, mental and physical abuse along with never learning how to process emotions. This is not how we wanted to continue our lives, being angry due to things we had no control over as children. There was a breaking point and my husband took the initiative to start counseling for himself to save our marriage. I needed work as well so we decided to do this together! I've been married before as well as him. We both wanted this to work. I was never big on the therapy concept and neither was my husband. We were initially paired with a different counselor but for whatever reason she couldn't be our therapist. I believe now that was fate telling us she wasn't right for what we needed. Then we found Donna... She has been the most amazing blessing for us and we absolutely love her. She is very comforting and caring. Intuitive and easy to talk with. The way she has helped us with such grace and kindness is beyond measure. Not once have either of us ever felt misguided, unheard, or unvalidated by Donna. This woman has become such an integral part of our lives. She has provided my husband with tools and techniques to calm himself before speaking, helped both of us to open up and talk without judgement or scrutiny. To be able to communicate with ample amounts of acceptance, understanding and compassion. I find myself feeling an inner peace I've never felt and an ability to face confrontation in a healthy rational way. No anger!! Donna, if you read this... Know we value our sessions and time with you more than we can ever thank you for. Even if we just chat about the weather, you are so important to us and we deeply and truly appreciate your role in our lives. Thank you. To anyone else considering Donna, do it.

Written on Jul 07, 2021 after therapy with Donna for 11 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, self esteem, coping with life changes, coaching, and adhd

Donna has been flexible in meeting my scheduling needs, is a good listener and always offers wise, non-judgemental feedback.

Written on Apr 26, 2021 after therapy with Donna for 9 months on issues concerning intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, coaching, and compassion fatigue

After a very long time and multiple counselors I don't know how I was as fortunate to have donna as a counselor. With a new counselor indreaded revisiting all of the areas I tried with counselors in the past. With Donna it was like she just "got it" from day one. She's fair, understanding and has given me the tools to better work through my stuggles outside of betterhelp while being there for me at moments of major personal struggle and turmoil. Donna doesn't let me sit and wallow in anything though, she has constructively reminded me of where Ive been, where I'm going, and the positive qualities I have either gained or used through trying times. She has kept reminding me the power of positive thoughts and it couldn't have come at a better point in my life.

Donna has been extremely supportive in working with me. Understanding more about myself has helped me to show up better in my intimate relationship, but also in other relationships. The benefits I've realized from our working together far exceed to original intent.

Written on Jan 27, 2021 after therapy with Donna for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, coping with life changes, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Donna has been great to work with during my process of healing. I was resistant to start therapy and not being able to find the right therapist. However, I have had the opposite experience. I was matched with Donna and she has been delightful to work with. I believe that Donna provides a great balance of comfort and expertise. Even though it is virtual, I still feel supported by her via video chat. Her technique comes from the heart and you can tell that through her warm and kind demeanor. I look forward to continuing this process of healing with Donna.

I’m so grateful for being able to talk with Donna! She quickly notices details and connects them to the issues at hand. Lots of times her suggestions of how to look at this or to express that are spot on. She has clarified things, reassured me, and guided me in improving communication and strengthening relationships. All good!

She’s so kind

Written on Sep 28, 2020 after therapy with Donna for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Donna has helped me a lot through the course of our sessions. she has been very understanding and has helped me see things I couldn’t or didn’t want to see. She knows exactly what to say and when to say it. Without her help, I probably would have been in a really dark place by now but she has been excellent and I couldn’t imagine speaking with anyone else.

Written on Aug 12, 2020 after therapy with Donna for 2 months on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, self esteem, bipolar disorder, and coping with life changes

Donna has helped me tremendously. I didn’t know what I needed from therapy and I felt lost. Week after week, with her help, I steered toward self understanding. I can confidently say I am a better and happier person after my time with her.

Donna is a caring, open listener, who does great job at letting me vent but then knowing when to breaking and ask a question. Wonderful counselor!
