Donna Crawford, is a resident therapist at Village Counseling Center. Donna holds a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology from Trinity Christian College. Currently she is completing her training in Clinical Christian Counseling Ph.D. program at Cornerstone University. As a therapist, former teacher, and mother of five Donna brings many years of experience working with children, emerging adults and families. Donna’s passion for counseling comes from her own healing and growth journey. She is committed to living her life intentionally and deeply connected with others.
Donna is an eclectic therapist that incorporates elements from a range of therapeutic techniques, with the goal of establishing an individual course of treatment that is personally tailored to meet the needs of each patient. The unique customization helps to facilitate relief, growth and healing to the client as quickly and effectively as possible.
Working with both men and women, Donna has experience with trauma, loss, abuse and neglect, anxiety, depression and self-esteem. She especially enjoys working with clients to make lasting life changes in their interpersonal relationships. An additional area of interest is working with the traditionally underserved.
Donna believes that in order for clients to experience healing and lasting change they not only need support and victory over their daily challenges, but they also need to understand the root causes. With balanced focus on current issues and at times a dive into the narrative of the past, we work towards transformation.
Donnas creates a safe, caring, trusting space for clients to wrestle with self-limiting beliefs and behaviors. She works to help the client take an honest look at the obstacles that are keeping them from living a healthy, vibrant life that they are longing to live.
