Donna is exceptionally kind, compassionate, informative and professional. She has a knack for helping find the root of problems, yet her approach to conversation never feels intrusive. 10/10 would recommend!

Donna is compassionate, understanding and funny, I like that she understood right away how sensitive I am and knows how to guide to the right questions without making me feel judged and hurt. She is intuitive, supportive and I actually look forward to our sessions thanks to the progress I've made.

Particularly easy to unpack with. Her personable nature and relatability was refreshing, versus the feeling of being a goldfish in a bowl being scrutinized. Grateful for the support she provided.
