Mary Donahue

(LCSW)

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Florida. I earned my Master of Social Work degree from Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1997. I’ve been a practicing therapist in community mental health centers, hospitals, private practice and residential rehabilitation treatment facilities. I have extensive experience working with those who are coping with depression, anxiety, grief/loss and trauma. Issues related gambling addiction and narcissistic abuse syndrome are also a speciality of mine.

My treatment approach involves providing empathy, deep understanding and compassion. I combine nurturing and support with practical skills that can be taken and applied to everyday situations and challenges. I feel very strongly that the most important aspect of counseling is the connection and comfort you feel with the counselor you choose to embark on your journey of healing. I believe challenging experiences are opportunity for growth and a third objective party that can offer prespective and support that can be extremely enlightening and beneficial.

In terms of availability, I check and respond to messages at least twice daily, seven days a week. I offer live chat, phone and messaging sessions each morning weekly ,a couple evenings a week and Saturdays.

I look forward to working with you!

Mary is the first counselor that I feel truly comfortable with and that gets me. I am so grateful to have her helping me on my journey of healing.

Mary Donahue is such a great counselor. She's very understanding and patient and she gives amazing advice. She understands that I don't have much to say if there's nothing going on but she always reaches out. It's always great to have her as an option when I start to feel overwhelmed. I'm in school for Psychology and can only hope to be as good of a counselor as she is one day.

Mary is wonderful. She is very perceptive and gentle. She understands what I'm trying to express; has sound advice, and a comforting energy. I look forward to talking with her before every session.
