Dr. Donna has helped me with many issues in the past 6 years. I found her to be upfront, very sharp and was able to recommend how I should handle each situation. I recently moved to Florida and will miss my sessions with Dr. Donna. I highly recommend her.

I worked with Dr. Kashani to treat ADHD during high school and college, and depression, and anxiety, especially after my boyfriend passed away in 2017. She is the best! She goes out of her way for her patients, and truly cares for their well being. Even after I moved outside of California, she temporarily worked with me and helped me find the help I needed in another state. She is personable, extremely intelligent, and a truly great counselor!

My family and I are beyond pleased with the care our daughter has received and continues to receive from Dr. Kashani. She has a warm, intuitive nature, which helps draw out important information that is necessary for an accurate diagnosis. She successfully diagnosed our child with ADHD and Dyslexia. With this important information in hand, we were able to customize her learning plan and obtain an IEP from school. I am happy to say; our daughter just made straight A’s in her 6th-grade report card!

I first met with Dr. Kashani eight years ago after battling a horrible anxiety disorder. Donna has truly saved me in so many ways. Since I’ve been working with Donna, I’ve developed the tools I need to cope with my anxiety. The first time I left her office, I felt like a huge weight had been lifted, and my life was going to be worth living! She’s treated me with the utmost respect and care. She is the most helpful, knowledgeable, and passionate doctor I’ve ever known. I am so lucky to know her!

Dr. Kashani has been my therapist and medical doctor for the past nine years. I have the utmost respect for her both personally and professionally. Under her guidance, I have been able to achieve an emotionally healthy life that seemed completely out of reach nine years ago. I cannot stress strongly enough about the quality of care I have received from her. She has also treated both of my adolescent children and enabled them to be the strong independent people they were meant to be.
