Donna Widman

Licensed Professional Counselor - MA, LPC, NCC

A trusting therapeutic relationship is essential for successful therapy. It’s  my goal to develop strong working relationships with my clients based on creating an environment that’s comfortable, open and free of judgment. I believe a supportive environment will help promote overall wellness, hope, growth and insight as you develop new tools for meaningful change and growth.


My experience includes working with issues related to depression, anxiety, grief and loss, bipolar, self-esteem, chronic health concerns and self-exploration. I work primarily with adults and elders. I utilize an eclectic approach to ensure each client's therapeutic needs are addressed.


My philosophy of treatment emphasizes a strength-based model for change that empowers clients to build on current strengths and develop new tools and insight to achieve positive outcomes.  I am also trained in ART (Accelerated Resolution Therapy).

You have taken the first step in navigating change. Have you been feeling depressed, anxious, overwhelmed and stuck? Have you suffered trauma? Life is full of challenges, but you don’t have to face them alone. I am here to provide support and guidance in a nonjudgemental and safe environment.  Together, we can explore what challenges you may be experiencing that may have become a road block in living your most joyful and purposeful life. I’ve worked with individuals who’ve experienced such things as anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, mood disorders and substance abuse.

I take a holistic approach to healing that includes the mind, body and spirit. I have been trained in evidenced-based treatments to include cognitive behavioral therapy, EMDR and motivational interviewing. I also use brief solution focus therapy to aid you in achieving your therapeutic goals.

Navigating change can feel overwhelming but know you don’t have to do it alone. It’s important to build a strong therapeutic alliance based on mutual trust and respect. This is your journey and I am here to offer support and resources to help you live the life you want.

Clinical Therapist - LMSW, PLC

What’s holding you back from making decisions, achieving your goals and maintaining the kinds of relationships you want? Sometimes we end up struggling with the same issues over and over even though the circumstances, situations and people in the scenarios have changed. It can be difficult to recognize the patterns that keep you from living your most authentic life. Therapy is an excellent tool to increase clarity and identify areas of change and growth that will help you get where you want to go. I have more than 20 years of experience as a clinical social worker in a variety of settings, including community mental health, outpatient treatment and emergency psychiatric assessment. Working within the framework of a growth mindset, I believe positive change is achieved through compassionate curiosity in a supportive and nonjudgmental environment. .Together, we’ll bring awareness to how your thoughts, feelings and behaviors affect your choices, your relationships and progress toward your goals. I work with people of all ages and am especially passionate about helping adolescents and parents improve their relationships to develop positive coping strategies, increase resiliency, and foster mutual respect. As a parent, I understand it can sometimes be difficult to communicate effectively with those we love the most.

Give me a call to talk about your goals and challenges. We can arrange an intake appointment to gather information and identify areas for change and growth. Treatment is individualized, flexible and collaborative

Life experiences can sometimes be painful and difficult. Having a counselor to help process the associated emotions can be very helpful. I find that developing a supportive, empathetic, open and honest therapeutic relationship with clients is essential for growth and reflection, and provides an opportunity for you to develop skills to manage challenging thoughts and feelings.  

I have experience working with individuals who are navigating feelings of depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, trauma, traumatic brain injuries and  life transitions, along with issues related to mood, substance use, chronic health problems, self-esteem, grief, relationships and gender. I utilize a variety of therapeutic approaches to help you process feelings, manage thinking, and achieve personal goals and emotional well-being. Among the techniques I use are trauma informed, CBT, person-centered, motivational interviewing and solution-focused. 

I offer a safe environment to help you develop the tools you’ll need to feel empowered and comfortable with your journey through life. I look forward to speaking with you.

Clinical Social Worker/Therapist, LMSW

I believe life is both wonderful and challenging. During challenging times people often feel stuck - it's an awful place to be and finding someone to help you out of stuck can be of great comfort and assistance. I provide compassionate, supportive therapy in a professional and comfortable environment. I explore thoughts, feelings and behaviors that cause people to become stuck and work on practicing new thoughts, feelings and behaviors to become "unstuck". Therapy is a collaborative and dynamic process and I enjoy working with a wide variety of individuals to assist them in getting the most out of their life.

I am a Master Level Practitioner in ART: Accelerated Resolution Therapy. Accelerated Resolution Therapy, often referred to as ART, is a form of psychotherapy with roots in existing evidence-based therapies but shown to achieve benefits much more rapidly (usually within 1-5 sessions). Please visit: for additional information.

I've worked over 20 years on inpatient psychiatric units and mental health clinics providing a wide variety of clients with competent psychotherapy. Having worked on inpatient psychiatric units, I have first hand experience with most psychiatric illnesses and insight into when a referral to a psychiatrist or inpatient treatment is necessary.

Susan DiMarco

Clinical Social Worker/Therapist, LMSW

Every day we face stressors that wear on us and leave us feeling overwhelmed, anxious & depressed. Dealing with stressors on our own can feel impossible to move forward without help. I believe it is important we work as a team to identify areas of your life needing extra support, and finding manageable small changes which will lead to big positive outcomes. Together we will help you find a working plan to alleviate your stress and anxiety and achieve your life goals. Whether you're dealing with a big life change or every day worries and stressors, put me on your team and together we will illuminate your path to healing & growth.

I provide a safe non-judgmental space to explore your feelings, emotions, stressors & goals. I believe in a person-centered approach, working collaboratively with you to find a treatment plan with which you are both comfortable & successful. I bring 10 years of working on inpatient psychiatric units, working therapeutically with a diverse range of diagnoses.

I look forward to working with you!
