PHILOSOPHY:
Dondra believes that healing comes from being willing to a willingness to explore and feel one’s emotions.  Not examining one's feelings can often lead to unwanted or painful symptoms.  When we process our emotions in safe and compassionate relationships, we are able to get ride of those difficult feelings that weigh us down.  This creates room for new, more positive emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. 
 
Dondra believes that therapy offers an opportunity for people to open themselves up to ways they would like to show up in new and better ways in their relationships, at work, and for themselves.  Dondra believes that comes through consistently engaging with others who can help us put into words what we are seeking and help us move toward it through just-right challenges and goals.
