Donna Arking's bio

This content was provided by Donna Arking " I am a clinical social work therapist with a wealth of knowledge, experience and dedication to my work with children, adolescents and adults. I am well trained and adept at the treatment of numerous types of behavior problems, emotional disorders and relationship difficulties. I am as comfortable with 4 year-olds as with seniors, as attuned to families and groups as to individual clients."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Donna Arking "I consider effective therapy to be an enlightening, enlarging and empowering process.  I believe I'm happy to say that recent scientific studies on neuroplasticity back this up.  I am optimistic, that virtually all people of all ages have an innate capacity for growth and positive change and because my work over the years has allowed me to witness changes that people do indeed make in overcoming significant obstacles, resolving crippling symptoms following trauma and  in being able to lead more fulfilling lives.


Essential to effective treatment is the trust that develops between practitioner and clients.  I do my very best to be worthy of clients' trust and when the inevitable breech occurs, to find ways to repair the bonds so that progress can resume.
