Work with individuals is to support relationships with themselves and others.
Internal Family Systems Therapy
A transformative model of psychotherapy that accepts that the mind is naturally multiple and works with our internal parts to become integrated and whole.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies as well as commitment and behavior-change strategies to increase our ability to respond to situations in a more flexible way.
Explores positive and negative beliefs you have and helps your brain process your experiences to break through the emotional blocks that are keeping you from living an adaptive, healthy life.

Psychological Safety in the Workplace
"Donna’s 'Building Your Resilience in Difficult Times' workshop was full of helpful strategies for finding more calm and positivity within ourselves. She was welcoming and encouraging, and she created a safe space for people to ask questions and engage with the techniques she shared. I think everyone left feeling like they had some more tools in their toolbox. Highly recommended!" Tara Day, participant.
