About Donna Cavalluzzi

I work with adults and adolescents struggling with the pain and challenges of the stressors that come with life. A safe space and warm environment is provided, which will allow you to engage with me in your process of change. My treatment approach is based on your individual needs, concentrating in psychodynamic and relational psychotherapy. However, going beyond technique and theory is what makes therapy work – it’s the realm of the trusting relationship: the ongoing human-to-human connection that provides the foundation for change. Change can be difficult, whether positive or negative, and therapy invites you to sit with your emotions and tackle the obstacles that may be hindering your growth. I use an integrative approach to understand your life experiences and how they are affecting your present functioning. Without a therapeutic relationship, there is no therapy. I combine empathy with humor to help you feel comfortable and bring a humanistic approach into the room.

My daughter ( 17 yrs.), husband and I have been seeing Donna Cavalluzzi for almost a year now. She has been and continues to be a great support system for our family. We feel comfortable discussing anything, we never feel judged. She is a great listener and helps our family navigate the ups and downs that life presents. Sometimes you just need someone neutral and objective to shed light, and offer different perspectives. She offers great insight and intelligence and is clearly well versed in therapeutic practice. It’s difficult to find a great therapist, where the chemistry feels just right. Donna Cavalluzzi is an outstanding therapist. We recommend her highly to anyone looking for outside support.
