Eudaimonia Psychology® utilizes the methods and tools of Positive Psychology, in order to live in a state of “well-being”. It’s the understanding that if you change your thoughts you will change your life. Through the process you will come to the understanding that life’s challenges will consistently come into your experience, and no matter how painful they may be, it is up to each individual to take 100% responsibility for where they are in life, and own the decisions they have made. It’s about practicing a state of well-being in which one does not pursue happiness, one exists in it – and accepts unpleasantness as a necessary developmental stage for growth. This does not mean that you won’t feel pain. It means that you’ll have the tools to manage the pain, and understand the necessity of negative emotions – learning how to walk alongside them, without fear of failure and demise. Eudaimonia Psychology® provides each and every one of us the ability to #DecideAndThrive.
Yes, Dr. Donna D offers couples therapy. Her couples program works in four session cycles. To begin, she will meet with the couple for one 90-minute session. This is followed by a one-hour session with each partner, separately. The fourth session consists of a 90-minute session with the couple. From there, the sessions move forward in cycles of four sessions, until both parties are confident that they have acquired the tools and skills needed to successfully continue on their path to a healthy, safe, loving, and intimate relationship.
