Rhoda Donnelly, LCSW

Let's  work together to develop the positive, joyful, and successful life you desire.   

My 25+ years of experience have given me insight into helping you manage the things that overwhelm and burden you.  

I use solution-focused, future-driven, positive psychology to help you build the future you want.  

My expertise is in treating anxiety, grief, depression, suicidal thoughts, children with ADHD or behavior concerns, as well as parenting and family issues.  

I am also a certified Life Coach to help you meet your life goals, and a certified Hypnotherapist to help reduce anxiety and/or stop smoking.  

Pet Therapy

Jasmine is a sweet Jack Russell mix whom I rescued in 2010.  She earned her Courteous Canine Certificate from the AKC and enjoys sitting with anxious adults or children as they participate in therapy.  Jasmine also enjoys performing tricks for treats - a fun way to build a child's confidence.  Jasmine is available on a limited basis, so please ask for her in advance!

Location & Hours

I currently see only a handful of clients every other weekend.  

Please call or text me to see if I have availability at this time.
