The perfect tune up for our marriage
Donna Harris-Richards has really helped us improve area's of our marriage that had become a struggle. Donna walked us through how to better communicate with each other, which has really helped all area's of our relationship. She helped us see each of our parts and tendencies in many of our disagreements. She was unbiased and never took one side over the other, rather she was always on the side of our marriage. We were given many tools to help us in the future to continue to nurture and grow our relationship. We would highly recommend Donna to anyone trying to save or improve their relationship with their spouse and partner.

It was a pleasure to work with Donna. We learned so much during our 7 or so sessions with her and we appreciate the techniques she taught us. She has a wonderful, approachable personality and sense of humor. Would highly recommend working with her.

Donna helped me a lot through grief counseling after losing my partner, and later relationship counseling. Last I spoke with her, her specialty is now relationship and sex therapy. I cannot recommend her enough, she is such a great listener.

I have worked with Donna through the majority of my twenties. She has provided me invaluable tools, and worked with me through some of the most challenging times including grief, coping relationship dynamics, and managing personal growth. I have unpacked fear of my sexuality, and with her support now celebrate it and explore it confidently. I never stop recommending the value of therapy, and specifically Donna, to friends, family, and work colleagues. It was the healthiest commitment I have made.

I am a bit of DIYer, but we were 42 years into our relationship/marriage and facing a world of change. Newly retired after a lifetime of doing our own thing amplified our differences. The pandemic presented even more challenges. The house didn’t seem big enough for two big personalities. Thankfully, my wife isn’t a DIYer. She did extensive research (unbeknownst to me) and wrote Donna a letter, asking if she would consider taking us on as clients. What a gift. After 10 sessions, I am confident that we can make our relationship survive and thrive no matter what comes our way. Donna does her homework; she takes notes, and always circles back to what our goals were. She offered tools, provided exercises, made us practice new approaches, and provided feedback … all with a sense of humor. My wife and I are her biggest fans. If we ever need a tune-up, we know who to call. Thank you, Donna!

We worked with Donna for nearly 2 years and it made a remarkable difference in our relationship. We are two working parents with a toddler and an infant. Donna gave us tools to be better people in life and to truly communicate with one another. She mentored us toward a healthy, thriving relationship not only verbally and emotionally but also physically. She truly had our "marriage" as her top priority. It felt like she was rooting for our unity the entire time we worked together and we highly recommend her.

My husband and I saw Donna for multiple visits over about two months to help us deal with some issues with extended family. She was wonderful and I would highly recommend her services without hesitation.

Working with Donna changed my life. She's compassionate, insightful, funny, and she teaches you how to make change happen by using concrete tools we practiced together. Working with Donna has allowed me to become the person I've always wanted to be, and to begin living the life I've always wanted to live. I can not recommend her highly enough.

Donna is amazing! I honestly don't know what I would have done without her. With her help and guidance I made it through the worst time in my life. Easy to talk to, funny, bright, and insightful. I always felt safe and supported, but she will also push you to be the best version of yourself. If you're having a difficult time and need some help, look no further.
