About Scott Donovan,

Personalized Attention for All Your Needs

I am currently seeing clients through telehealth in Texas and through telehealth and in person in California. I take Kaiser (Southern California) IEHP (California), Lyra (California and Texas), and cash payments (California and Texas). My name is Scott Donovan and I want to walk with you through your struggles. Are you struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD, trauma, or your relationship, and do you have a desire to work on change? Are you willing to work on weekly goals and attend weekly therapy sessions? Then we may make a good team. I specialize in individuals, families, couples, and groups. Don’t you feel that it is time to make the changes you are so desperate to make?

I am trained in CBT Essentials. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a common type of talk therapy done with a therapist that helps one become aware of inaccurate or negative thinking, so you can view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them more effectively.

I am also trained in Trauma and am currently trained in EMDR therapy. To find out more about EMDR please check out this link to see if EMDR is right for you.

I am compassionate and understanding. If you are struggling with something and you are willing to make a change and work on that change, then let's discuss it and see if we are a good fit, send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you and hope that we can work towards your goals for something different.
If this sounds like you, take the next step and contact us.
I look forward to hearing from you and possibly working with you.

Individual Therapy

We believe that individual therapy is the relationship between the therapist and the client to create, together, a working plan to move away from the pain and work towards building new coping skills. We implement compassion as we process your concerns and will work together to move through the process. Individual therapy has several components that work in partnership to attempt to reach goals.
