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 an expert in human behavior, a fantastic listener, and she’s absolutely brilliant. I have seen her at many critical moments during my life and I always leave feeling powerful and motivated to handle whatever comes my way. She is the perfect blend of clinical knowledge, humor, compassion, and tough love when needed. I would recommend her to patients of any age seeking to improve their mental well being.

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!

I first met with Dr. Kashani eight years ago after battling a horrible anxiety disorder. Donna has truly saved me in so many ways. Since I’ve been working with Donna, I’ve developed the tools I need to cope with my anxiety. The first time I left her office I felt like a huge weight had been lifted and my life was going to be worth living! She’s treated me with the upmost respect and care. She is the most helpful, knowledgeable and passionate doctor I’ve ever known. I am so lucky to know her!

Dr Kashani provides over the top care and continues to be a huge part of our family's support structure following a tragic event. She easily identifies with adults and children and cuts to the point with each obstacle in order to find a better solution. She has a unique way of connecting with children (even resistant ones), so that the child almost doesn't even realize they are in therapy. She has given us the tools to be a better couple and parent team. We strongly recommend Dr. Kashani.

Working with Donna has been an absolute pleasure. It can be very difficult finding a psychiatrist that you can really trust and connect with. After just my first appointment, I was very happy with her and felt confident in our compatibility to work together. Not only is she very understanding and helpful but, you can tell she is a woman with lots of experience. She provides intellectual feedback and works closely with you to help further the understanding of yourself. She is awesome.

I have been a patient of Dr. Kashani's for a few years. The most important requirement I had while looking for a psychiatrist was someone who I didn't feel judged by. She was amazing at reassuring me that there was no judgement and that she has heard it all. Thanks Dr. Kashani for guiding me through some very turbulent years.

Dr. Kashani is the best adolescent Psychiatrist. In addition to prescribing medications, she is very knowledgeable and gives input about all areas pertaining to adolescence. She is easily accessible and responsive to her clients' needs. I would definitely recommend her.

Dr. Kashani was very patient in figuring out what was at the root cause of our family’s issue. She is a great therapist and doctor, something you rarely see in a psychiatrist together. She changed our family dynamic significantly for the better. Being a parent from out of state and very concerned for my son in college, I now feel a sense of relief knowing he is seeing such a competent doctor. Couldn’t recommend Dr. Kashani more highly!

Dr. Kashani has worked with my daughter through some situations, she was amazing. Having prior experience with another health professional on the same issue, Dr. Kashani was able to quickly access and give advice for my daughter swiftly. Her attentive style was exactly what we needed to make progress. In addition, she was able to keep me informed and help me understand the issue, and most importantly give me feedback to support.
