My name is Donna and I am here to provide a safe and supportive place for you to work on what is important to you. I believe change comes from inside and that support and guidance can help us reach our goals. I approach counseling from a strength-based perspective and trauma-focused lens using EMDR, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and DBT. If you are having difficulty coping with life's problems, or experiencing a sense of unhappiness, choosing counseling is a brave choice. When we feel in control of our lives and less troubled, we feel better mentally, physically, and spiritually.

My approach to therapy comes from the belief that within each of us is an inner wisdom, that when accessed will guide us to new insights, answers, relief and even healing from our burdens and struggles. I believe we are all designed to find healing, when we do our own, honest "soul searching" or inner exploration. Richard Schwartz, developer of the Internal Family Systems model, stumbled upon an approach to navigating our internal systems through work with his clients. He discovered that we all possess the positive qualities of calmness, compassion, confidence, courage, etc. when connected to this source of inner wisdom.

“The past is just the past,” they say. You’ve tried to let it go, ignore it, bury it away, but it still seems to haunt you. Growing up you saw the fights, cleaned up the messes, felt the pain of hurtful words, and covered up so many cuts and bruises. You did what you had to do to survive and got out as fast as you could. You were determined that your life would be different. And for the most part it is. Unfortunately, the emotional remnants remain; anxiety, feeling like you’re “not enough,” the disconnect from others...You’re ready to finally shed these struggles, but you need some help getting from here to the life you want.

It hovers over you like a dark cloud. The pressure of trying to meet everyone's expectations (including your own) is too much to handle most days. And when you can't fulfill these expectations, the guilt & shame of not being good enough creep in. No matter what you accomplish you still feel inadequate. There's always a nagging feeling that something's wrong with you. It's exhausting, and you're tired of feeling this way each day. You wish you could have support, but don't want to burden others with your problems. Who would want to listen? In spite of being there for others, it seems that when you need help, it's nowhere to be found.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
