While I believe theoretical frameworks are useful, much more significant is the relationship that develops between me and my client. My therapeutic style is dynamic, directive, intuitive, and there are also moments with my clients where laughter can be the best mental health "medicine."
I work with my clients in a strengths-based environment conducive to self awareness and self growth. Prior to becoming a licensed psychotherapist, I spent several years in the corporate world as an employee, a manager, and an executive manager for companies that include IBM, Trammell Crow, and New Balance Athletic Shoe Co. With this experience, I am able to deeply understand how our mental health and well-being can be affected by our work and, affect our work.
I'm also a partner in a long-term relationship as well as a mom so the complexities of being in both of these roles are greatly appreciated by me, both directly and indirectly.

Donna has helped me get through the most trying times of my life. She was very present to me and constantly supportive and encouraging, helping me to change my perspectives and view things differently. This has helped my relationships, especially my relationship with myself. I have learned so much from her, and I have grown significantly in this time together. I will always be indebted to her for what she has done for me. Thank you, Donna!
Donna has helped me understand myself and has helped me find actionable ways to improve my life. She's made opening up about everything so easy for me, and her expertise is invaluable. She is both intensely forward and compassionate simultaneously.
Donna helped me to get through the darkest and most devastating period of my life. I was paralyzed by fear and uncertainty in every way because my life had been turned upside down . When I began sessions with Donna it was difficult to get out of bed and I slept more than ever before because sleep had become my way of escaping from what my life had become. I wore the same clothing for days and I couldn’t go leave my house even for the short time it would take to check my mail. I saw an ad for Better Help and I was desperate, I knew that I needed counseling but I couldn’t leave the house. Being matched with Donna was a blessing, she helped me to see that my life was worth living. Our journey together gave me the guidance to find my way to a better place than I had been before tragedy struck when I was certain that only death would free me from my pain, I’m eternally grateful for such a sincere and caring counselor. Donna, you’re the best!
Donna is a skilled therapist who understands the deep seated issues underneath problems. She helps one break it down and is the very best therapist I have ever worked with.
Donna is an extremely talented counselor. Working with her has changed my life.
Really works for me. Have been in professional, one on one in person counselling and actually found this better.
I have been working with Donna long enough now to recognize the positive changes in myself and couldn't say enough about this form of therapy and how much it has helped me. I recommend it to my friends and anyone who thinks they may need to talk to someone. It has offered me a place to "spill my guts" so to speak and not feel judged or misguided. It's like journaling in it's truest form, but the journal actually responds and helps you.
Donna is phenomenal. I feel she completely understands my situations and can suggest such great approaches to all of my current issues. She's adaptive, consultative, compassionate, caring, intelligent, friendly, humorous and an excellent human being. I am thrilled to be working with her.
Donna is awesome and so very helpful in my life! I highly recommend her.
Donna is amazing!
Donna is so compassionate and experienced. I feel safe telling her anything b/c I know she won't judge me. She truly cares.
Working with Donna has been absolutely wonderful! She has encouraged me to continue on the healthy path I have set for myself and has been insightful and attentive when helping me deal with the many issues I am currently facing in my every day life. The advice and direction I have received from her has been outstanding and I can honestly say that she has had a profoundly positive impact on overall mental and emotional wellness. Thank you, Donna :)
Donna has been very helpful in getting through a difficult time in my life, and sorting through my feelings. Her responses are thoughtful and she has pushed me to really take care of myself and take more control of my life. I feel like I can tell her anything and not be judged.
Donna is my saviour! She is the best therapist I have ever worked with. She is very result-oriented, great with listening, has actionable steps to actually make my life better. Also, Donna is very thorough and she has a knack for for counseling. She is also very passionate about her work and follows up regularly and gives me exercises that actually make a difference. I can go on with more praise for her. But, you get the idea!
I really like the examples that Donna gives me so that I might be able to relate to how and why others as well as myself make certain decisions or take certain actions. I like having the logical, emotional and clinical way of thinking about the way things work.
My experience until now (only 3 sessions) is that Donna is very pleasant to work with and easy to connect with. She is very flexible when it comes to adjusting the therapy. She has a sense of patient's readiness and nudges the right amount. We haven't fixed me yet, but we're moving along :).
I have been with Donna for a couple months and I am so very pleased. I had a "on-the-couch" therapist in-person for 5 years and we made some progress, however, the work Donna and I have done in a couple short months has been transformative and soul-shaking. She knows very well when to listen and when to coach and push me out of my comfort zone. She's compassionate, funny, and I look forward to our weekly meetings.
She's very insightful, helpful, and patient.
Donna is an exceptional therapist! She takes the time to understand you and what the underlying issues are and works with great care and diligence to follow up on your progress and also, gives me assignments and is a great listener. Since she has experience with working in the technology field for a long time, she and I have an incredible frequency match! I will follow up with a more detailed review!
I have been working with Dona for about a month and she is great. She gives great advice very caring and supportive.
I have been working with Donna for about about a month. She is very thoughtful and caring she is very non-judgemental and takes the the time to listen. I have issues with trust and she makes it easy to trust. I don't know where I would be without her.
She's great ... super friendly and professional :-)
I have been working with Donna Keen for a little over a month now and she is very caring and very insightful. I have issues with trusting people and she has made it very easy
She is very great therapist.
I enjoy my sessions with Donna. She provides thoughtful topics and great suggestions.
She is a great therapist she makes it easy to open up.
Donna is a very caring and skilled therapist. She gently leads you to where you need to go without any shaming. I was pleasantly surprised that when I started therapy during a weekend, when I was having a family crisis, she got back to me the same day. She is a gem. 5+ stars.
Wise, compassionate, understanding and not the least bit judgmental. I feel totally safe with her and trust that she knows how to help me.
Donna is the best.
Donna has truly been an amazing therapist. I took a break from our correspondence for a number of weeks while I moved on to apply the strengths fostered under her care, in various areas of my life. When new challenges inevitably arose from this journey, I turned back to Donna and she immediately provided the support and insight I very much needed. I greatly appreciate her attention to detail and feel that she truly has a "big picture" perspective of my life. I started off this week feeling on the verge of a breakdown and am finishing it with a breakthrough: I feel gratitude, I trust my own strength, and I am empowered to calmly attend to my needs without giving in to harmful impulses. Donna absolutely makes a powerful difference in my life!
Having Donna as a therapist is like having a great friend - but one that HAS to listen and be encouraging when you drone on about all of life's trials and tribulations. She is funny, warm, and insightful but is not afraid to call you out on your false assumptions and nudge you in another direction. So glad I found her!
Donna is a good therapist. She doesn't force anything on you and makes good suggestions.
To open a heart is a marvelous thing, and to see inside is amazing. Donna is more than a counselor, you see, she has heart with the things she is saying. So few times do we know how hidden are we, away from the world as we see it. Donna can help open your eyes and what it is you want, you will be it.
I was so lucky to have been paired with Donna Keehn. She has helped me so much to see the real truth and she makes me think and work on me. Thank you for your help.
She is very caring and awesome!
Donna is an incredibly skilled therapist and a lovely person. We hit it off immediately as she is extremely intuitive and open - she made me feel comfortable, understood, and supported right off the bat. She's not afraid to give real opinions from her professional and expert perspective, which is exactly what I wanted. I wasn't just looking for someone to let me blab on and on with no insights coming back at me. Donna has helped me tremendously in a very short time and I look forward to the work we've set out to do together in the days to come.
Donna has been absolutely wonderful and has been an amazing person to unwind to. Her responses are very helpful and in the short time I've known her, I feel like I trust her completely. Thank you!
BetterHelp matched me with Donna Keehn based on the answers. Their method worked beautifully because Donna has proven to be the perfect match for me. She has a way of cutting through the emotional rhetoric and focusing on helping me use my head to find the right solution. Donna helps me stay away from rehearsing the hurts of my past which cannot be undone or changed and keeping me in the present.
She has given me assignments that are geared at keeping the focus for healing placed on me, which is great because I can't change a thing about anyone other than myself. I've worked with her for nearly a month and by following her directives and doing as she's guided me to, I've made a lot of progress during that time. My 20-minute phone session with Donna was more effective than 50-minute in-person office sessions with other therapists. I am very pleased with Donna Keehn and I highly recommend her.
Donna is fantastic. Professional and very quick to respond with good advice. I feel very lucky to have her guide me through some of my challenges.
She is kind and gives me somethings to think about. She makes what I am thinking is right for the most part.
I am deeply grateful for having been paired with Donna. She is a tremendous help. She doesn't beat around the bush when it comes to getting me to stay on topic. I can literally feel myself becoming a better person day by day.
Accurate, empathetic, intelligent, bold
Donna Keehn has a gentle but strong nature about her. She has been helping me so much by asking a question that spurs deep thought. She also answers back without making me wait a long time which is very helpful as I work through my issues. I would recommend Donna in a heartbeat.
Very good service...highly recommend.
Donna has been phenomenal! She is always very quick and responsive. She also has great dialogue skills and speaks with true empathy and compassion; she genuinely seems to care about her clients. From the start, Donna was able to make me feel instantly comfortable. She possesses strong interpretation skills as well as an ability to intuitively understand my way of thinking. I would truly recommend her to anyone!
Just after I started chatting with Donna on the first day, I felt some relief on having someone that can help me on my very stressful relationship situation. She is very responsive and asks very relevant questions to figure out the root of your problem and educate you on it.
Donna Keehn has been very warm and supportive, and offered real solutions to interpersonal relationships. I give her a huge thumbs up!
Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!
Donna's approach is very helpful and I have found her very easy to connect with.
Donna has been infinitely helpful and has great ideas to help me manage my anxiety. She's very thoughtful and intelligent. This process is assisting my recovery a great deal.
Donna is very dedicated to helping you get at the root of your issues and examine your feelings critically. She's excellent at keeping you focused and accountable, yet always responds with kindness and empathy.
I have really enjoyed working with Donna. She offered me a compassionate ear and gentle, helpful advice.
A very understanding, connected and supportive counselor. So much more than I was expecting from "online" counseling!
