Dawn M. Donnelly M.A., LPC

I have been working in the mental health field since 2006. I received my Masters in Counseling from Fordham University in New York and received my LPC at Montclair State University in New Jersey.

My therapeutic approach embodies psychodynamic and holistic strategies.  I am fully committed to my clients and their therapeutic goals.  I provide a warm and supportive environment while encouraging and gently challenging my clients when necessary.  Aside from talk therapy I integrate creative techniques  like  drumming and therapeutic games when needed.   I am able to form a trusting and open relationship with my clients from the start of our relationship and give them the support and confidence they need to terminate successfully when that time comes.

I have worked with individuals struggling with depression, PTSD, anxiety, self-esteem, intimacy, career challenges, relationship issues, weight/health concerns and substance abuse.  I am also skilled to work with individuals that have had a severe personality disorder as well as a chronic mental illness and LGBTQ related challenges.  Over the past year and a half, I have started to integrate EMDR into my practice.  I have a great passion for people and guiding them “to live their best life.”
