Donna V. Norona (She/Her)
“The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only their potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them.” ― Thomas Merton
Hello! Thank you for visiting my page! As a longtime educator, my students have inspired me to make this leap into psychotherapy. My interests include, but are not limited to, faith, culture, trauma, grief, attachment issues, client-centered therapy, and play therapy. I was born and raised in the Philippines and am fluent in Tagalog and Cebuano. With compassion and genuine concern, I commit to listening and giving a safe space for my clients to talk, explore, and process concerns that have brought them to the clinic. I believe each one of us has the power to create meaningful changes in our lives. I look forward to being a part of your journey towards self discovery and empowerment!
