What people are saying.

When I came to Donna, I came seeking freedom from a pervasive addiction to cigarettes. What I got was a map to freedom from a life of crushing depression and anxiety, a happier and healthier family, and a solid knowledge that all of that was always and will always be inside of me and will never elude me again. The work that we did in a few months was far more powerful than a decade of talk therapy, reaching immediately to the core of my troubles without the weekly emotional hangover that one can get from hashing over the past again and again, week in and week out. She pulled out the joyful, secure spirit I always knew was inside of me and taught me to sweep away the fears and psychological rubble that resulted from years of trauma. I cannot begin to express the level of gratitude I feel towards this woman and the incredible services she provides. She is absolutely priceless. ~ Sarah B


Donna has a passion to help others find their power within to heal past hurts and to look at painful choices we've made in life.  She's been given a gift of insight that allows her to see what we sometimes can't.  She was created a safe place where you can open up and speak your truth without any judgement.  She helps you sort out the things that are holding you back from enjoying life to the fullest. With her guidance, I've found a beautiful, spiritual awakening to the power of inner healing.  Now that I'm able to understand my triggers and see I have choices regarding them, I am beginning the healing process.  I also now understand how vital setting boundaries with others is for me to grow.  Thank you Donna for honoring your calling to help others find more balance, faith, centeredness, calm, harmony, strength, joy and hope! I'm forever grateful.

 I've seen several hypnotherapist and none quite as amazing as Donna. She listens with warmth and understanding and designs the program specific to your needs. Donna's practice is about empowering you to heal, to move beyond whatever is holding you back and embrace the space of self assurance and well being. Seeking out Donna was one of the best decisions I've made for myself and I am eternally thankful for the modality of Hypnotherapy and all it has done for my life.

Donna is a Sacramento hidden gem. I've been teaching and use meditation for over 25 years so when I give Donna five stars it is a reflection of the value her services provide. She is seasoned at setting the energy and tone at the beginning of her sessions. She is also great at asking questions, listening, and helping her clients develop and achieve their personal goals. If you are looking at an inwards journey, exploring yourself and unlocking your inner wisdom and power, I'd recommend connecting with Donna.

I have suffered with depression and anxiety for my entire adult life.  Talk therapy and prescribed psychotropics drugs have been my method of treatment.  Sometimes a brief reprieve but they would always return. I heard about hypnotherapy from a friend. I had a consultation with Donna wherein she explained the process and gave me an overview of what her steps for me would include. From our first session she was able to synthesize and give order to the origin and resulting behavior of issues that were impeding my growth.  She not only helped abate the problems she gave me HOPE.

Having a session with Donna is like being in an oasis. Her ability to be present with you and with whatever you're going through creates a space that feels safe and serene so that you can feel comfortable enough to look at the issues in your life and begin to heal and then grow. I have, with her gentle guidance, had the courage to see when I'm lying to myself or in denial and begun to recognize the self sabotage more easily and shift into a place where I can make healthy honest choices for my life. I'm feeling stronger, more vital and in the driver's seat of my own life thanks to the support I have received in session with Donna. So grateful - Jeanie W

Bilateral Tinnitus. I came to Donna seeking hypnosis for the relief from the constant ringing in my ears. Unable to cope with the symptoms I was becoming depressed, couldn't sleep, and started isolating. Emotionally I was becoming despondent. I was desperate for an answer. Within several sessions utilizing hypnosis and reiki Donna was able to help me obtain relief to the point were my Tinnitus was barely noticeable and at times not noticeable at all. I have chosen to continue with Donna as a life coach as I have started a journey of self discovery. I am 62 yrs old and I am learning more about myself and my truths then I have at any other time in my life. I say it often to Donna and I mean it deeply: I will be eternally grateful. Thank you Donna.

I felt relief and calm throughout my body and mind just walking into Donna’s office. The warm space and devoted and professional attention made me feel like I was in just the right place for me. I was amazed by how she was able to narrow down the complexity of my situation to something tangible to work with in a short period of time, and she supported me into a place of deep clarity during my session, of which I am still working with the benefits and insights of over a week later. Her explanation of hypnosis as therapy was really understandable and dispelled my reservations about it, as I experienced the deeply meditative benefits of her guidance and the supported access to a healing inner world within myself. Thank you Donna for your caring practice, I look forward to doing more of this work soon! ~ Maya M

As a guy i always struggled to face my anxiety, it was the typical thing to ignore it and be tough. But the more i ignored it the stronger and selfdestructing it became. Donna has helped me face my anxiety in a healthy professional way that diminished the symptoms and helped me become a stronger well balanced man because of it. Stop ignoring and avoiding the emotions that you struggle with. There is help and it takes steps but once you face your emotions it is then when you can be truely free. Thank you Donna for helping me on this journey. GIVE DONNA's SESSIONS A TRY, SHE IS A MIRACLE WORKER!! ~ Jay N
