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.
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!
Donna is awesome and I appreciate her help
Donna has helped me to navigate a very difficult time in my life. Her balanced, objective view of my situation and her encouragement to go slowly, have self-compassion and focus on what is working has been a life-saver.
She’s so kind
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.
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!
She has been a very responsive counselor. She listens and offers great advice. I trust her.
