Dr. Donna believes that everyone can benefit from therapy, as everyone has experienced the feelings of being stuck, lost, and out of touch with what life is all about. Therapy helps to clarify situations and provide perspective of what is real vs. subconscious irrational beliefs of the past that hold individuals hostage and prevent them from living their best lives.
Dr. Donna's techniques cover several areas of specialty including:
The ancient Greek philosopher, Aristotle, created the word "eudaimonia" from the root word "daimon" – which means "power" or "true nature" or "spirit" – and "eu," which means "good." Through the practice of Eudaimonia® Psychology principles and tools, you’ll be able to decide how you want to respond to life’s challenges, and thrive as a result. Dr. Donna's unique form of psychotherapy was built on the foundation of Positive Psychology. She founded Eudaimonia® Psychology to share the additional methods and tools she created, which further enable people to live a joyful life – despite their circumstances. To exist in a state of "calm" regardless of what life throws your way.
Eudaimonia® Therapy created by Dr. Donna
Practical, step-by-step, results-driven psychotherapy, designed to help you continually live joyfully. When working with Dr. Donna, clients enter a program, committing to five sessions at a time, thus ensuring clients that this is quick and profound therapy with a definite end in sight.
Your reality exists in the conversations you have about your environment and circumstances you find yourself in. Eudaimonia® Clients are able to have objective conversations with their therapist. The focus is on what you want out of life, not what you don’t want, taking 100% responsibility for your circumstances today, leaving your past behind you and finding the strength to walk into the amazing future you were destined to enjoy.
Hypnosis is a completely natural state characterized by deep physical and emotional relaxation. Hypnotherapy is an effective form of therapy that can help people more easily overcome obstacles and break bad habits that are preventing them from living the life they desire. Hypnosis is not a state of unconsciousness but rather a different level of concentration and awareness. Hypnosis can help you to lose weight, stop smoking, reduce stress, increase sports ability, increase job performance, and increase self-esteem. It has also been used to manage pain, recall forgotten experiences, and explore past-life regression.
Dr. Donna created and taught a fifteen-week Dream Analysis course on the graduate level at SUNY Stony Brook. Dreams can be helpful in understanding our underlying emotions. Once we define something, it’s then easier to not only address the issue, it’s also easier to create a solution – using Eudaimonia® Psychology methods and tools. An on-line Dream Analysis course for the seeker, and one for the clinician, is slated to be released in the upcoming months.
Narcissists intentionally target kind and capable people, who are often unaware of the narcissist's psychological composition, and the immense emotional damage they can cause to those they set their sights on. Narcissistic Abuse Recovery allows the client to understand the dynamic they are currently, or were recently, caught up in and provides them the tools and methods to set themselves free.
All relationships, even the best ones can be challenging at times. Dr. Donna provides a variety of relationship psychotherapy options for people who are struggling, not only in intimate relationships, but in all relationships, whether they be extended family members, work environments, neighborhoods, or any group situation where participants are unable to resolve relationship challenges on their own in a healthy, loving, supportive and effective manner.
The term "Conscious Uncoupling" hit audiences in the 1950s and is used quite often today as divorced couples find it important to co-parent in a healthy way for the welfare of their children. Divorced couples work together to find common ground in which to communicate and move forward in life without alienating and emotionally damaging their children in the process.
Couples getting ready for marriage engage in counseling to make sure they are well understood by their partner by learning basic communication skills, which include caring and compromise. Division of labor in relationships are explored as well as love languages and constructive arguing. If you are good at constructive communicating, you will be great at loving!
Dr. Donna provides effective, customized psychological approaches that are designed to effectively move professionals and businesses beyond common upward limiting beliefs, taking them to the next level.
A Eudaimonia® business culture will allow your executives to be more effective and your employees to be more productive. Communication is the key to growth in any successful organization. It takes a Eudaimonia® team to be innovative. It takes leaders who practice self-awareness to bring the best out of people. Healthy communication provides both.
