My name is Donna, and I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Tennessee. I have over 16 years of experience working in the mental health field. I have worked in a variety of settings including residential, outpatient, inpatient, and in-home care. I have the most experience working with depression, anxiety, grief, and addictions.
I use a person-centered, motivational, and integrative approach in treatment. This means I begin where you are and tailor the treatment approach to your needs. I primarily use evidence-based techniques including cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused counseling.
I would describe my style as warm, compassionate and supportive. Collaboration is important, together we can work on establishing concrete goals and steps for you to help overcome your current problems. I look forward to working with you to reach your emotional and mental health goals.
Thank you for taking care of yourself and seeking the support you need.

Donna, is just excellent in every aspect. She is very professional and personable. Her suggestions, recommendations and support have made me achieve goals that I never thought possible. She is a wonderful listener and soon becomes easy to speak with.
I’ve been able to quit an addiction that never seemed possible. I cannot thank her enough!

She has been a great help to me since we started therapy. She listens very attentively and doesn't pressure me when I need a moment to respond. She encourages me every session and congratulates me on the progress I have made. I feel very fortunate to have been matched with her.
