Hi, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, licensed in Georgia with 20 years of experience working in the mental health field. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including but not limited to depression, anxiety, past trauma, grief/loss, aging and coping with life changes
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral therapy, client centered therapy and motivational interviewing. I believe in meeting people where they're at and do my best to tailor my approach to ones individual needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I frequently remind clients that the journey of 1000 miles begins with that one step. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Donna is amazing, she us very attentative to my individual needs
Donna has been amazing to work with. I feel very comfortable talking about anything on my mind, and she listens with a warm and sympathetic ear while offering alternate insights or framing when I need it. She always seems to have options for me to practice new skills or even simply try them out to see what works for me.
She has been amazing so far, and has really helped me be able to talk through my issues
Donna had been very patient with me as I open up and we get to know one another
Donna goes above and beyond to listen and help me understand my situation. She sends me coping skills that has helped me tremendously.
Donna is amazing. In the past, I have felt that I didn't connect with therapists and that they didn't have an understanding of my childhood, regionally cultural nuances, etc. I was so thrilled to find someone who shared many life experiences and was able to connect on a level that made me feel very understood. Love love love her! Looking forward to continuing our work together.
Donna has been extraordinarily patient and helpful with my problems. She's very patient with my confusion and difficulty expressing my thoughts. I feel that I've made great progress and that this therapy has made my life so much better!
She lets me ramble and get all my thoughts out and helps guide me to a solution without giving me a straightforward answer. I love when she does that. It helps me more. She talks to me like a friend but also like a therapist should and it makes me more comfortable
Donna is extremely responsive, compassionate, and professional. She makes me feel like a priority and gives me things to work on between sessions to build the skills and habits I am trying to integrate into my daily life
Great listener highly recommend always checking on me randomly and sends me resources to work on to better myself as well!
Donna is earnest and genuine. She’s helped me a great deal and I do not hesitate to recommend her.
Donna (Joy) has been nothing short of patient, warm and understanding. I have come such a long way in my mental healing and confidence in myself in the last 3 months with her, that’s major for me!
I moved to another state so I will not be able to continue work with Donna, and I will miss working with her dearly. She is a caring and patient counselor, I wish her the best!
She’s a great listener and doesn’t mind honesty
She is wonderful. She gives me the chance to talk about what’s on my mind, and if I’m totally blank, she has a topic for discussion ready to go. Amazing follow up and worksheets and goals…..everything. Really recommend her.
Donna has been amazing, she’s helped me outline my goals and has given me resources and ample support to reach those goals. Even in the moments where I may fall a bit short or feel like I fail, she is always there with an uplifting spirit and helps to get me back on track and acknowledge the progress I’ve made. I am happy to have started using Better Help, she’s been so helpful!
I’ve really enjoyed counseling with Mrs. Dunn. She has helped a lot with my stress and anxiety. She’s very sweet and gives really great advice. I also enjoy the tips she sends! I usually write them on my mirror so I can read them to myself!
Mr. Dunn is always so helpful and she helps me to see the big picture! She has given me tools to help with my anxiety and depression and she is always so understanding. I really appreciate the time she takes with me and she also sends messages and helpful tips throughout the week which helps me to stay focused on my recovery! It's a journey and I'm so happy she is helping me along my journey to recovery!
She’s been nothing but fabulous
She is prominent and she knows her stuff. I would highly recommend her.
she wonderful and I love how she helping me goal setting.
Donna is AMAZING - she has helped me work through so much anxiety, and I have also noticed myself thinking more positively with sharper tools than I had before when I go into conversations that spike my anxiety. I can better approach situations now, that used to cause me to freeze in the past. I recommend Donna Dunn for anyone who finds themselves to be over-thinkers. She is attentive, supplies guidance in a timely manner, and helps line up all the chaos that is in my mind. ⚡️✨⚡️
Joy (Donna) is a very caring person. She and I have some similarities in common which I think makes her a better, more relatable counselor. She relates ideas and concepts in ways that really sick in and hit home. I'm a difficult patient sometimes - I have a problem with consistency - but she stays after me in a loving and not at all pushy way. I appreciate that she cares enough to continue to reach out, even when I've sort of disappeared.
She's made communication a breeze!
Not threatening, obviously intelligent but doesn’t rub your face in it. Meets you where you are. Down to earth ☺️
Donna is a great counselor she understands we’re I am coming from she never judges me and is always open ears to whatever is my concern
I enjoy my time with Dona she seems to be very knowledgeable and gets me probably better than I get myself she’s a great listener.
Donna has been a great help to me. She knows how to work with me to develop my skills at managing anxiety and boosting confidence at a good pace without going too fast.
Donna has been immensely helpful. Practical and caring.
She is very easy to talk to and offers great information to assist with my needs.
I have only been talking with Donna for a week but she is very responsive and helps me see things from a different perspective. She provides me with tools to help myself and the support to help me understand it all.
I’ve enjoyed working out my thoughts with Donna Dunn. She’s warm and open. I quickly felt at ease.
Better Help is amazing!! It’s the best program there is when traditional in office visits are either not available, too expensive or you just want a new way to do therapy. I strongly recommend!!
Joy is amazing! She makes me so comfortable to just get it all out and not feel judged. I love the worksheets that she has sent. They help keep me focused on what my goals are with therapy. I feel that I’ve made great progress with her.
She has been very responsive and supportive in every way. She keeps sessions comfortable and empathizes with me. Every session has been helpful in some way and I feel better than I have in weeks.
Very helpful and Donna is always quick to respond. She is very knowledgeable and has offered so many avenues of resources that I can look in to for help.
She is extremely attentive and listens to everything you have to say. Focuses on what’s important and helps guiding you through the situation. Very positive and a very good listener which helps in a way for you to talk your heart out.
Donna is the best listener and right off the bat made me feel super comfortable and heard! She’s been great at helping me re-direct my thoughts and focus. I like that I can just chat and she asks questions that keep me on track or help me see what I’m saying in a different way. I also appreciate the variety of worksheets she has sent me. They’ve been incredibly helpful to me, especially with organizing my thoughts. I just recently felt ready to go back to therapy and Donna has really made me feel like I’m healing and moving forward.
Absolutely the best! She's easy to talk to, listens well, and works hard to ensure the tools she's giving you work for you. Highly recommend!
