I've know Dr. O'Donnell for over 15 years. He is an incredibly intelligent, sensitive and well-informed psychologist who has dedicated himself to integrating emotion focused & somatic approaches and empirically informed approaches. He is one of a handful of colleagues that I reach out to discuss cases. I endorse him as a psychotherapist wholeheartedly and without reservation.
