Donna is amazing. She truly listens with no judgment and empathy. She has a gentle way of telling you the truth. I look forward to sessions because I know she will bring light to perspectives I had not thought about.

Donna has been nothing but supportive and understanding of what I need to better improve myself. I would highly recommend her!
My partner and I started going to sessions with Donna because of some relationship issues we were having and she gave us cognitive behavioral/ psychological tools that helped us to work through our issues with her and with each other on our own , so we have been able to better learn how to communicate with each other and grow closer as a couple. Donna’s down-to-earth and warm personality helped me open up more and feel safe to talk about my fears and flaws. She is so open and compassionate that I think she would be a great therapist for anyone!!!
This is my first time seeking out a therapist to help in guiding me to get out of my negative thoughts and to help me coping with life issues better. Donna has been extremely helpful, caring and attentive in her work with me. She takes her time to fully understand who you are as a person and how your issues are affecting you.
I'm blown away. I was helpless and hopeless. Donna is on top of her game. She knows her stuff. Highly recommend.
Donna was very receptive and explained complex ideas in thoughtful ways that made sense. Highly recommend, especially if looking for trauma-focused therapy.
Donna is very knowledgeable and has excellent material to help make sense of what goes in one’s mind and behavior! She is also very empathetic, kind and a great listener. She not only listens to you but offers scientifically and psychological insight on your problems. She makes you feel like you have a friend. I always feel 100% lighter, empowered and enlightened after my sessions with Donna.
I love Donna's ability to suggest additional resources and books that support my growth.
Easy to talk too. Appreciate our interaction.
She talks a lot of sense.
She’s very sweet and she’s very supportive
