About Me

Thank you for considering counseling with me. It's a really big step, and it takes a lot of courage to ask for help. I have a Master of Social Work Degree, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Florida and a Certified Hypnotherapist. I practice from a holistic perspective, because I believe that our physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual experiences are all connected, and what affects one aspect also affects the others. I have had extensive training and over 25 years experience with individuals, couples, families and groups seeking counseling for issues such as trauma recovery, grief/loss issues, identity and relationship issues, anxiety/panic attacks, eating disorders, life transitions and much more. I help you access and utilize your innermost strengths and skills to move beyond your current situation, gaining insight and growth in the process.

When we undergo challenging times in our lives, we can often feel isolated and alone and uncertain about where to start to make things better. It is important during challenging times to honor our feelings and be gentle and compassionate toward ourselves during the process. With compassion and understanding I'll offer the support you need to identify and utilize your strengths and skills to move beyond what you are feeling and experiencing. I’ll help you gain insight about what you're experiencing, attaining new skills and abilities in the process. Together, we will create specific goals you want to attain, and I'll give you assignments that will help you attain those goals. This can be particularly important when you are dealing with more than one specific issue, which can often be the case. At the same time, it is important to recognize that counseling is a process, and it's important to be patient and understanding with ourselves.

With respect to grief/loss, it is important to recognize that not all grief involves the loss of a loved one. While we commonly think of grief as what we experience with the loss of a loved one, we also need to grieve other losses, such as the loss of a job or relationship through breakup or divorce. Also, while there are formal custom/supports that help us process our grief over the loss of a loved one, there are no such supports in place for dealing with other losses. It is all the more important at such times to seek out the support we need to help us through the grieving process.

Again, it takes a lot of courage to ask for help, and I am so honored to be a part of your journey. Whatever challenges you are facing, I can help you navigate those challenges and regain a sense of control over life's circumstances and empowered to move beyond them. I'm so glad you're here, and I look forward to working with you.

Written by A.N. on Jan 13, 2022 after therapy with Donna for 1 year and 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, self esteem, and career difficulties

Donna has been an amazing support system. Not only do I feel comfortable talking to her but she naturally helps me confront the things that I have repressed for so long in a comforting yet challenging way. I would have never made the progress I did this year without her support. I am grateful to have her as my therapist. And our work will continue on together.

Donna is extremely knowledgeable and experienced. Her insight is impeccable and she listens and provides appropriate guidance and feedback. I think the world of Donna. For as long as Donna works at Betterhelp, I will continue to have counseling sessions with Donna. I appreciate you so much, Donna.

I have only been working with Donna for 5 weeks and I have come so far. My last therapist wasn't giving me what I needed and I am so grateful to be matched with Donna. She ticks every box that I have identified that I need for myself and we are a great team already. I am very grateful for Betterhelp.com and I have already recommended you to several people.

Written by K.E. on Mar 28, 2021 after therapy with Donna for 9 months on issues concerning relationship issues, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Donna has been the best partner in helping to guide me through the ending of an abusive relationship that I was in, through my healing journey and now in my process of manifesting and living the life I want. She has listened and worked with me and utilized methods that have worked for me and how I process my feelings and thoughts. Donna has helped me navigate this complex process in a professional yet gentle, caring and authentic way. Thank you Donna.

I feel a connection to my therapist for the first time ever. She really understands my beliefs and how I think, which is key to her guiding me in the right direction. I can’t be any more thankful.

Donna has been incredibly helpful! Love working with her!

Written by D.A. on Jul 29, 2020 after therapy with Donna for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and family conflicts

Opening our life to a complete stranger seemed unthinkable, but Donna is exceptionally easy to talk with. She offers tools which are extremely useful and sets goals which are reachable. She has the ability to shine light on what should have been glaringly obvious and helps you to solve you own issues through her guidance. I found her non-judgemental, and straight forward. Her experience and personality saved a 29 year relationship. Thank you Donna!

It has been a few weeks, however I am already feeling differences and closer to my goals.

Written by T.R. on Jul 17, 2020 after therapy with Donna for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, grief, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

My life has greatly improved since I've started my sessions with Donna. She provides sympathy, but is very goal directed, which I appreciate. She acknowledges my feelings but then helps me come up with a plan to fix my situation and live a healthier life. I've been able to work through certain traumas from childhood and instead of letting them weigh me down, I've been able to move on and deal with my issues head on. This is truly the best investment I've made this year, and it has increased my communication with others.

I've been working with Donna for over three months now. I like that she actually listens and provides helpful feedback. Donna asks the right questions and gives me "homework " to get me closer to achieving my goals. I think Donna is a very wise person and it's been helpful.

Donna has been great at helping me identify underlying causes for my anxiety and I feel like we have started to get to the root of the problems.

Written by J.E. on May 07, 2020 after therapy with Donna for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem

I've never really been a open person to talk to someone about certain things, always find a way to figure things out on my own but finally gave in because life became too overwhelming and really do believe my counselor cares even when something seems minor she checks in on me in those areas and I appreciate it.

Written by D.E. on Apr 30, 2020 after therapy with Donna for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, and self esteem

Donna Page is very astute to my issues and her recommendations or “homework” aids me in my progress towards dealing with difficult issues. Donna helps me clarify the real issue and ways to deal with my current dilemmas. I believe that she understands me and who I am. I look forward to our sessions.
