Donny Simpson

(LMFT)

About Me

My name is Donny Simpson. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I graduated with a Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Grand Canyon University in 2012 and Bachelor's Degree in Human Services from Cal State Fullerton. I was most recently a Child Welfare Social Worker and continue to manage Social Workers in Children and Family Services.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and I have worked with clients with a broad range of issues, including anxiety, depression, stress management, relationship/marital and family problems, work-related stress and issues unique to the LGBT community. I also specialize in working with families involved in the Child Welfare system including reunification and/or adoption. It is my priority to maintain a judgment-free space, a space that is challenging but comforting, and a process that is enlightening as well as retrospective.

My approach to therapy is laidback and conversational while providing goal-directed treatment using a combination of Cognitive and Solution Focused Therapy. I take a collaborative and supportive stance in my approach to therapy and I have been told that I am comfortable to be with and easy to talk to. All treatment is planned with the goal in mind and progress is made toward reaching that goal.

I look forward to working with you!

Sometimes I feel like I don't have that
Person to talk to,. Especially now with everything going on in the world. I have a tendency to keep. Things inside and Donny brings it out of me. I allow myself to open up no matter how embarrassing.

Donny takes into account that there are layers to us all and helps determine how to help by asking relevant and insightful questions. He is kind and patient.

Donny has been helping me work through the grief of losing my 6 year old grandsons death and helping me to cope with taking care of my bed bound 77 year old mother that has Alzheimer’s as her caregiver.

Donny is a joy to talk to; he is very knowledgeable, responsive, and checks in if I haven’t messaged him in a while, which are all very important to me. Thank you for listening and supporting me Donny, during this unsettling time!
