My name is Donna, and I've always known my life purpose is to assist others. ​ This is evident from the various roles I've had in business, marketing and customer service, along with seventeen years working as a Secondary Education Teacher. During this time, I have had my eyes opened to the many mental, physical, social and emotional concerns the youth of today have and continue to experience. I have experience working across diverse cultures and with the LGBTQI+ community. My mission is to assist you on a deeper level to be empowered, find hope, and strengthen your belief in self to improve wellbeing.
I use a variety of therapeutic approaches, such as Person-centred, Solution Focused, Strength-based, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Emotion-focused Therapy, amongst others. The knowledge, skills and understanding I have obtained over the years will enable me to best meet your needs.  ​
People seek counselling for many reasons, it's not just when they may be experiencing mental health concerns. If you decide to seek my counsel, my role will be to assist you with strategies to become empowered to help yourself. On this journey I can help you with setting personal goals, exploring what works best for you, and reinforcing your success.
