About Donna Ciccone
Hello and welcome! I am a licensed clinical social worker and energy psychology practitioner whose passion is to help others to have the opportunity to learn to heal themselves. I work collaboratively with my clients on a wide range of difficulties such as depression, anxiety, life transitions, relationship challenges, grief and loss. I have thirty years of post-masters experience including work in the hospital setting, emergency mobile crisis outreach and school social work/Child Study Team. I received my Master of Science in Social Work from Columbia University.
I started my practice, in Montclair, NJ in 2000. In the past several years I have combined a conventional approach to psychotherapy with mind-body techniques and energy psychology methods. The results have been amazing!
While it's not possible to provide guarantees, I have successfully helped many of my clients transition from feeling helpless, fearful and “stuck” to a place of power, freedom, creativity and self-love. I use a process that is designed to help my clients clear and release limiting beliefs, reach their goals and aspirations and to discover new things about the beauty and power of their spirit!
There’s nothing else in this world I’d rather be doing!
Since my teenage years I've had an interest in how the body heals itself (I have my mother and grandmother to thank for that!) and I was always up for trying the latest approach whether that be "health food" as we called it back then, Applied Kinesiology for nutrition, whole food supplements, lymphatic massage, yoga and meditation. While in college, on my own journey of self-inquiry, I began to learn firsthand the process of emotional healing through my own work in psychotherapy and other healing modalities. I enrolled in psychology and social work courses and realized pretty quickly that this was what I wanted to do; it was crystal clear, like a calling. Learning that there were so many possibilities in how I experienced life and that I, and I alone, was in charge of creating my own happiness, inspired me to want to join with others to help them to do the same.
Over fifteen years ago I began working with a practitioner who uses energy psychology methods of healing. I was able to do some deep emotional work where I released long-standing and recurring limiting beliefs about myself and my worldview. It was amazing to me that in doing this very simple, yet quite powerful process, all of the negative aspects of the issues were completely gone leaving room for positivity and inspiration to flow! My personal experience with these powerful methods led me to using them with my clients and become certified as a Diplomate in Comprehensive Energy Psychology.
