Giving Individuals the Support They’re Looking For

I Provide Support for All of Life's Transitions

Helping People Deal With Grief, Trauma, and Life Transitions

My name is Donna Tallon, MA, LPC, CDWF of Hope Counseling Colorado in Denver, Colorado. I am passionate about helping individuals connect with their best selves.

I offer my clients a path to understand their challenges. My goal is to help them realize that all they need is within them.

My Approach

I view therapy through the lens of developmental needs that may or may not have been met in your family of origin. I use the methods of Pia Mellody of The meadows for Truama and Addictions, the work of Brené Brown™ for shame resilience and worthiness, the work of Interpersonal Neurobiology to understand the neuro psychology development, EMDR and Mindfulness Self Compassion for self soothing. I also incorporate the Enneagram of personality as a means to understand one’s self and others, specifically to highlight one’s strengths and to address challenges more accurately and efficiently. My extensive work with grief and loss is a resource for any loss you may be experiencing.

Putting Your Needs First

Your emotional and relational well-being are important to me. My specialization gives me better insight into helping people cope with various life challenges. Together, we will work to meet your specific needs and help you become your best self.
