    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!

    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.

    Before meeting Donna I couldn't even stomach the thought of going to see a therapist. With that being said, now I look forward to seeing her on a weekly basis. Donna is low key, thoughtful, caring, smart,sympathetic, empathetic, and has a sense of humor. I feel she sincerely wants to help and guide you through anything going on in your life. Don't hesitate to book an appointment. She is AMAZING!
