Please join Samantha and Denise as they welcome Alonna Donovan Makinso  for an in depth discussion about Adult Children of Narcissists. Alonna holds an M.A. in clinical mental health counseling from the University of Cincinnati and professional counseling licensure in both Ohio and Virginia.  She is the owner and founder of Life Tree Counseling, LLC, currently located in Cincinnati, Ohio with an additional anticipated location in northern Virginia. With the partnership of her therapy dogs, Quigley and Lydia, Alonna provides mental and emotional health counseling services to clients who are seeking to nurture their mind, body, and spirit.  She serves as a treatment provider for clients suffering from anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, and personality disorders. Alonna’s work centers around helping clients heal the wounds of the past, make peace with emotions, find and deepen meaningful connection in relationships and enhance their overall quality of life. Her practice caters to the needs of sexual minority populations and non-traditional relationships, including adult individuals and couples practicing consensual non-monogamy and the LGBTQIA+ community at large.  Alonna believes that healthy, meaningful connection to other people, animals and nature is vital to our wellbeing and that we best facilitate our personal growth when we invest in the holistic nurturing of our physical bodies, mental health, and spiritual selves.
