Donna is committed to developing collaborative, creative, loving and satisfying relationships. Prior to becoming a therapist, she spent over 7 years helping business leaders develop empowering and collaborative working relationships. She also facilitated weekend workshops on relationships for a number of years and she has been married now for over 15 years.
Donna works with each couple relationship as a dance, each impacting the other as a closed system. The individual can only change how they are participating in the dance, they cannot change the other person. When each individual learns to change, the whole dance of relationship changes. Eventually the couple is able to choose how they want to dance together.
Donna received a Masters in Counseling Psychology with a concentration in Somatic Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS). Somatic Psychology addresses the mind and body as integrated, with an emphasis on the reciprocal relationships between thinking, body shapes and emotional expression. Donna is a registered Marriage and Family Therapist Intern #66511 supervised by Catherine Singstad, MFT.
