Licensed Professionals to Guide You

Life can be difficult. Speaking with a professional psychotherapist can help. As your therapist, I care about your well-being, provide all the tools you need to seize the day, and teach you how to tackle even the most traumatic circumstances.

I’m not the kind of therapist who simply asks, “How do you feel about that?” I will tell you what I hear and what your body language/facial expressions say. Based on this, I can give you the education and resources I think will be helpful and ask you to try some techniques to see if making small changes can help.

About Donna 

I graduated from Syracuse University and have been a therapist for over 30 years, beginning my private practice in 2001 in Tampa, Florida. Since then, I have moved a few times but settled in Northwest Arkansas. I have worked in agency outpatient counseling centers in New York, Maine, and Florida and I’m licensed in AR, FL, ID, and MO as a Clinical Social Worker.

During my career, I have always provided face to face therapy. But, in the current health environment, I will provide all services via teletherapy.

To ensure our sessions remain private, I always use a HIPAA compliant video platform. Meanwhile, clients can use a smartphone, computer, or any other device that connects to the internet. We have found that teletherapy is just as effective as in-person office visits and most people find it more convenient, time-efficient, and private. Face to Face counseling may be resumed 6/2021 in Northwest Arkansas.

I accept many health insurance companies including:

  • Ambetter

  • Blue Cross Blue Shield

  • Cigna

  • United Health Care. 

I also provide EAP services.

My Therapy Style

 

I truly believe people have the need to be heard, understood, validated and supported in their mental health journey. I am very blessed to be given the opportunity to help people heal, grow and gain insight into themselves, as well as others, and to enable them to build strong, healthy relationships. I feel that it is very important for a person to have a trusting, nurturing and safe relationship with their therapist to enable them to express every thought, feeling and behavior honestly. I strive to meet clients where they are and work with compassion, understanding and acceptance. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy to achieve the changes needed to empower my client’s to make the changes needed to meet their mental health goals.
