Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I found Don after praying for a therapist that met my needs, a Christian, out of town (for reasons I will not go into) and office hours for those with odd work schedules. God lead me to Don, he fit my needs perfectly. He worked with me until I felt that I was in a place I was comfortable. The EMDR therapy is truly a lifesaver. I could not get my narcissistic husband to go with me to therapy but I learned to love and care for myself. I am better today than I’ve ever been. Thanks Don

Donald had extensive knowledge to share with me, all while balancing a professional environment and allowing me to speak openly at my own pace. Our meeting felt like I was speaking to a dear friend. I would definitely recommend his services to any person/s seeking marriage and/or family therapy.

We started seeing Mr Short for marital issues and ended up learning more about ourselves than we ever could of imganied. He’s so compassionate and loves What he does and that’s helping people to their fullest potential I did EMDR Therapy and it was amazing Things I’ve carried around for years I now have learned to let go of We went in broken and scared for a divorce and we came out falling in love all over There’s not enough space to tell just how great he is. His advice is invaluable AMAZING!

I have seen many psychologists and therapists throughout my many years living with Bipolar and PTSD. Mr. Short was the ONLY one, from Acadia Parish to E. Baton Rouge Parish, who was able to not only help me, but continue to maintain stability in my life.

Mr. Don is a great marriage counselor. He's not pushy and you don't feel pressured to go like many other counsellors do. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that is having problems in their marriage. Even if you aren't having problems, he's a great person to listen to anything you need to talk about.
