Donna is wonderful! She makes my ridiculous insecurities and fears feel normal and teaches me how to deal with them. She’s so easy to talk to and has made me feel comfortable from our very first meeting. She’s really the best, highly recommend!!!

Donna is such a warm-hearted therapist. Her kind and paitient guidance supported me through one of the darkest days of my life. She is more like a long time friend, she would listen to me, and would support me to be me. Every time she clears things up for me and respects and suppotrs me and makes me feel I am valued.

She saved my life!

When I talk with Donna I always feel like she’s attentive to what I’m saying and understands what I’m trying to say. She is amazing and she’s really helped me in the amount of time we’ve had together.

Written by L.O. on Apr 28, 2020 after counseling with Donna for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety

Just what I needed. She provided numerous recommendations and resources from apps to books to exercises. I have finally begun to manage my anxiety quicker than I have in the past with other counselors. She picks up on things through cancer I would have never though were a trigger for me. Very happy for her guidance.

Although I have only had two appointments with her, I can tell she truly cares about me. She is a good listener and responds quickly to my messages.

Even though we are thousands of miles apart, (Donna in USA and me in UK), I feel as though she is right there for me. Very quick to respond. Kind, thoughtful and vastly experienced in my area of troubles. Donna really gets it.

Donna is very easy to talk to and I felt very comfortable with her right away. She has given me insight into certain issues that is so different from the way I saw them, which is very helpful. She is fast to respond to messages and checks in between sessions, which I really appreciate.
