Donna Folcarelli, LICSW
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
By working together, I will help you unearth long-standing behavior patterns and negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
I believe that each of us has more inner strength than we know. The key to unlocking this strength is recognizing what triggers our behaviors and addictions. I work together with you every step of the way. I develop treatment plans which are tailor made to fit the individual. I utilize cognitive behavioral, client centered, psychodynamic, strength perspective and solution focused approaches. My goal is to help you gain insight, self discovery, and identify positive qualities while empowering you to be your best self.
I grew up in a dysfunctional family and at a young age tried to make a difference in life. I was always trying to help my family, friends, and anyone who came in my path with a problem. Along the way, I encountered my own struggles and created huge hurdles which I had to surmount. Good , bad, or indifferent these hurdles allowed me to get where I am today, and I am a strong believer we learn from all of the above. My life hurdles allowed me insight and empathy to help others. Motivation, determination, dedication, and a will to change and help others got me through. I obtained my degrees when I had three children, and although at times it was hard and seemed out of reach, I pushed forward. Life at times is hard, but I believe anything is possible. I also believe that together we can accomplish anything. I do not give up on anyone, and I know we can get over those hurdles together. If you are willing to try, I will walk with you every step of the way.
