About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with several years of clinical experience. My educational background includes a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have worked with a wide range of clients to include school aged children, teens/ adolescents, adults, and families. I have a special interest in working with individuals who have been impacted by traumatic/stressful experiences, self-esteem issues, relationship issues, depression, and anxiety.

Through counseling, I support my clients in finding their strength and create healthy perceptions. There is no single therapeutic approach for every client, so I use several different techniques to include: cognitive behavior, solution focused, mindfulness, client focused, and trauma focused cognitive behavior.

My passion in life is helping clients maximize each moment of their life by being whole, healed and fulfilled. I believe in meeting clients where they are and helping them attain their full potential. It is important for me to help my clients feel empowered and embark on a healing path to overcome their present life circumstance. My counseling style is relaxed, empathetic, fun-filled, and interactive.

I believe that therapy is a professional relationship in which both the therapist and client work together to set attainable goals that best fit the client needs. What you will get from me is a safe non-judgmental place to be yourself. I am a firm believer that you are the expert of your own life and possess the skills necessary to attain the best version of yourself. I look forward to taking this journey with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for LaDonna Holmes. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Written by E.M. on Sep 02, 2022 after therapy with LaDonna for 1 year on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and anger management

With each passing session, I feel more and more like I am enough. LaDonna’s caring and thoughtful advice has made me reflect on some of the harder things I’ve avoided, and has truly encouraged me to show up for me. I know I’ll get where I need to be with the tools she’s given me.

LaDonna has been a wonderful therapist who is warm, loving, and approachable. She is gentle and allows her clients to take however much time is necessary to say what they need in a session. She lets the client guide as much as possible in a session. It's like talking to an old friend!

She is an effective therapist. If you are willing to do the work by taking accountability using the techniques she provides she can help you to start and maintain the journey to transform your thinking, that inner voice inside that we all have which will start the transformation of your life from the inside out.
She listened to me, gave me a safe space to express myself free of judgement, helped me to identify what, why and how I was feeling from session to session, gave me techniques to analyse my past traumas, and experiences by helping to unlock my memory from things i had long forgotten or buried and gave me coping skills to use to get through the experiences I have today that were shaped from past traumas. She is a polite, wonderful, effective therapist and person. I recommend her to those who are ready to go on that journey of healing. If you're ready she's waiting to help you navigate.

This woman is AMAZING. I have been through many therapists and have never made it past the second session because a good fit was very important to me. LaDonna listens, understands. and gives me such reassurance and validation in overcoming my struggles. I feel like I have a friend who really is there and gets me. Umm 10 outta 10!
