Hello parents! My name is Donna M Adams and I have a total of three Masters' Degree's the first one is a Masters' Degree in Guidance and Counseling, Masters' Degree in Human Services and a Masters' Degree in Clinical Counseling. I am Licensed in Missouri, Nebraska and South Carolina as a License Independent Mental Health Practitioner and a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have been trained extensively in depression, anxiety, relationship issues, self-esteem, school issues, cultural issues and trauma. As a parent myself, I know the challenges that arise when raising children.
The teenage years can be especially hard, due to developmental, cognitive and environmental changes and stressors. I have worked with adolescents since I started in this field from the outpatient setting to residential treatment. Some children and youth experience difficult times in their lives and this can cause a feeling of loneliness and feeling like they are alone. They may also feel hopeless, disoriented, or challenged by life issues and social woes as a teen and young adult. But, just for a second I want you to imagine a space where you can share your feelings, your concerns, and your thoughts with a professional. A space where you feel comfortable to share and to discuss difficult issues in your life. I am here to help.
I have been working in the mental health field for 30 years and have been working as a clinical therapist for 25 years. I have had the pleasure of working with adults, teenagers, and children (ages: 3-17). I have had much experience working with the transitional age youth population (ages 13-25). I understand that teenagers at this age often feel misunderstood by their parents and society as a whole; I can provide support to not only the youth but also the family helping to build good communication skills along with appropriate interactions in the family.
As we begin counseling, I would like to find out more about your child or youth, their needs, strengths and areas where you feel you and your family need the most support. We will work together to come up with goals, as therapy is a collaborative experience. I have a compassionate and understanding ear, as well as the knowledge and resources to help guide change.
I am here for you and your child with genuine care and compassion.
