Dr. Donahue is a licensed clinical psychologist in the State of Maryland who specializes in anxiety and mood disorders, trauma-related disorders, and emotion regulation difficulties. He provides cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to adults, with a specific emphasis in mindfulness and acceptance-based approaches to problems in living. His practice philosophy is to work with clients in fostering greater awareness and tolerance of difficult thoughts and emotions, while promoting behavior that is more in line with their values. At the first visit, clients can expect to collaborate with Dr. Donahue in assessing and understanding the issues that brought them into treatment. A treatment plan will be developed based on that understanding with regular progress monitoring occurring throughout the course of care.
Dr. Donahue received a B.A. in psychology from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey and a Psy.D. from La Salle University. He completed a predoctoral clinical internship at the Bureau of Prisons Federal Medical Center in Devens, MA and a postdoctoral fellowship in PTSD research and treatment at the Portland VA Medical Center. In addition to clinical practice, Dr. Donahue is presently an assistant professor at the University of Baltimore, where he teaches in the Division of Applied Behavioral Sciences, supervises counseling psychology graduate students, and conducts scholarly research.
