Donna has been amazing with helping me overcome such trauma from my past life. She has informed me immensely of reason and understanding as to why I would do, say, or think in negative ways. I’m incredibly grateful for her help from helping me heal from my childhood, teen years, and adulthood. She’s amazing, she listens and hears all your emotions and what you’re saying to her. I would recommend her to my friends. Most especially because of her warm caring heart and energy.

After working with Donna for 5 weeks, I developed a sense of confidence in myself and my ability to use the skills that she taught me to cope with anxiety and negative thought patterns. Donna listens really well and has always provided me with worksheets and information that matched what I needed.

Donna has been very helpful. I had 8sessions of live video call with her and been sending her messages from time to time, and she always get back to me as soon as she can. Although we have almost 8hours time difference, we have been communicating consistently. I am very comfortable with her and I appreciate the way how she listens to me and checks on me.

Written by K.A. on Mar 22, 2022 after therapy with Donna for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, lgbt, self esteem, and adhd

I can tell that she really is listening and trying to ful understand my issues and feelings before delving into them, which I really appreciate. It doesn't feel like she's just going through a checklist, I really get the feeling she is spending the time to try and get to know me, which is difficult when not in person. It makes a big difference.

She is great.

Written by T.A. on Dec 29, 2021 after therapy with Donna for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, trauma and abuse, anger management, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Donna is an excellent therapist. This is my first experience with therapy, and shes literally changed my life. I went from being able to barely function socially to finally having a grip on my mental health and how my body reacts to negativity. She offers so many new things, and always makes sure to ask if its something I'm comfortable or interested in doing. She listens, my adhd makes it hard for me to know when to start talking, she heavily respects that and always leaves room for me to speak first. Shes an amazing person and super friendly and always reassures you

Work with me!
