Having seen multiple therapists before Dr. Kashani, I never felt I got the help I needed until working with her. She made me feel understood, but also educated me so much more than I had expected. She helped me determine the root of my issues, and gave me tangible goals and strategies to use to work through them. After a year and a half of working with Dr. Kashani, i feel more confident in myself than ever. If I could give her more than 5 stars I would. Highly recommend!

When Donna started to work with my son I immediately knew everything would be turning around. He is bright but was not doing even close to his potential in his high school studies. She quickly diagnosed the issue and started a comprehensive plan that turned everything around. She has stayed with him as his doctor since then and he is now almost finished with his masters degree in a very challenging field. Along with being brilliant and amazing at what she does Donna is also a very caring and personable doctor who relates extremely well to teenagers. You will love working with her!

Dr. Kashani, or Donna as you’ll come to call her, is the most wonderful doctor you will have the pleasure of working with. She masterfully combined intellect, empathy, and wholistic thinking to provide a clear ladder to mental health and life success. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone willing to put in the work to reach their potential. She has become family.

Dr. Kashani is brilliant and changed our son's life. We sent him to another doctor before we luckily found Dr. Kashani. (The other doctor only seemed to care about the money he was pulling in. His office was shared with other doctors with a packed waiting room which was like a revolving cattle call and 15 minute appointments. The kids and parents all looked stressed and miserable). Our son was facing academic and bullying hurdles in middle school and high school, but Dr. Kashani always came up with the right solutions for him to handle them. She made him feel completely comfortable discussing whatever life was handing him and is still doing the same in his senior year of college with his relationships and future endeavors. He is happy and thriving. He's on the honor roll in a tough college pursuing his dream job, has a healthy relationship with a wonderful girl and has made many friends at school. Dr. Kashani has helped our entire family and we are forever grateful.

Dr Kashani has been working with my daughter, now 19, for the last 3 years. Both my daughter and I were immediately at ease with Dr Kashani starting with our first meeting. She is engaging, easy to talk to, insightful and one of the smartest people I have ever met. My daughter enjoys talking to her and feels completely at ease to discuss anything.

Dr. Kashani is amazing. She’s had a very positive impact on my teenager. She’s phenomenal working with teenagers and providing them the safe space to open up. My daughter has mentioned how thankful she is to have a doctor like Dr. Kashani that truly listens, genuinely cares and offers positive strategies. Cannot say enough what a wonderful doctor she is and how thankful we are to have found her.

Dr. Kashani has been a great support to our daughter. She is approachable and kind and has a very relatable way of interacting with teens. Olivia looked forward to appointments with Dr. Kashani and always felt heard, understood and supported. Her humor was an added bonus and made the sessions fun and enjoyable! As a parent, I also appreciated how Dr. Kashani was able to share and reinforce some essential things with our daughter that we also discussed with her - it often comes across stronger when another trusted source weights in on teen issues!

I saw Dr. Kashani for over 4 years and there is not 1 bad thing to say about her. She truly invests in her client's and is easily approachable. She was never too busy for whatever I was going through and even encouraged me to text her whenever if something was on my mind. She connected really well with me and I would recommend her to anyone. There is a reason she ranks #1!

I worked with Dr. Kashani to treat ADHD during high school and college, and depression, and anxiety, especially after my boyfriend passed away in 2017. She is the best! She goes out of her way for her patients, and truly cares for their well being. Even after I moved outside of California, she temporarily worked with me and helped me find the help I needed in another state. She is personable, extremely intelligent, and a truly great counselor!

Dr. KASHANI is a fantastic blend of empathetic confidante, plucky roommate, Yoda-like mentor, and George Carlinesque straight-talker. She is equal parts realist and optimist, a professional who cares like a friend.

Dr. Kashani has been my psychiatrist and therapist for a many years now and I can honestly say I don’t know what I would do without her. She is amazing at what she does, and her understanding of cognition and medicine is unmatched. She is direct, compassionate, extremely effective and truly makes her patients feel heard, loved, empowered, and aware. She heals. Dr. Kashani is one of the strongest, most intelligent people I know and I am so fortunate to have her in my life.

My family and I are beyond pleased with the care our daughter has received and continues to receive from Dr. Kashani. She has a warm, intuitive nature, which helps draw out important information that is necessary for a accurate diagnosis. She successfully diagnosed our child with ADHD and Dyslexia. With this important information in hand, we were able to customize her learning plan and obtain an IEP from school. I am happy to say, our daughter just made straight A's in her 6th grade report card!
