Donna Novelli, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

For 25 years, I have been passionate about establishing a trusting relationship and empathetic connection with the individuals that I work with in order for them to feel safe and heard in treatment. I believe that each patient is unique, and I work hard to develop specific treatment goals and strategies to meet my client’s needs. I am dedicated and motivated to staying current with new treatment strategies and attend conferences to keep me current with the newest and most effective therapy strategies. I recognize that psychotherapy can be an emotional and life changing experience. Whether I am working with an anxious child, a depressed adult, a confused and angry teenager, or an individual grieving the end of a relationship, I believe that through a trusting and compassionate relationship, healing and self-knowledge and personal empowerment can occur. I respect the fact that someone has chosen me as their mental health provider, and I will work diligently to help them achieve a successful experience in therapy. I see children, adolescents, young adults, adults and couples. I also do co-parenting sessions in cases of divorce.
