Ratings for Dr. Donyce L. Brenneman
Dr Brenneman formed an opinion about me and if I dared challenge that opinion I was abruptly told I was being defensive, which, of course made me defensive. She didn't understand me on any level and tried to force me to admit to being something I wasn't through bullying me. I didn't find her understanding or compassionate in any way. I have never been told by a therapist that they were losing patience with me, and she said it in a borderline frightening way. She made my PTSD much worse. It has taken me months to reverse the damage that she did to me and I'm still not quite there. . Thankfully I found a great therapist to help me fix all this damage she did. I find her to be somewhat dangerous, especially to someone in a fragile state, which most people are when they enter therapy. One of my top 10 best decisions of my life was to stop seeing her. I still get shivers at the thought that I subjected myself to her for the amount of time I saw her.
Dr. B has helped our family immensely. We are all living more joyful, productive lives because of her insight and guidance. She is very caring and compassionate. She is very affirming and brings out the best in all of us. She has helped our family go from dysfunctional to functional. We will always be very grateful and thankful. She was the perfect therapist for us!!!!
I am where I am today because of the help of Dr Brenneman! She showed me the tools I need to make healthy lifestyle decisions and taught me about forgiveness! Some days were hard but through it, I am a better person! God has given her a gift, I am forever thankful!! ❤️ She would go out of the way and it didn't end at the door. Genuine person I trust and she has a special gift indeed!!
I have to say that Dr B has been a tremendous help to me and my family, I believe that she more than likely save my daughter from dying, from her eating disorder. Br B not only helped my daughter , but also gave the time to help others in the family learn to cope with issues too. She always went out of her way to be there for my daughter, even coming in on her days off just to accommodate my daughters college schedule. I find this therapist to be compassionate, intelligent , and very faithful. She has also counseled me with marital issues and other personal matters. Yes you can trust this therapist. She has always found time to fit me in her schedule no matter the issue. Some patients may say she is not punctual, I say it is because she takes the time to talk to you deals with your problems and time is not always on her mind. It's about the quality of your session that matters! She has been there for myself almost 24/7 at times always checking in to see how I am doing! I would recommend this therapist especially to those dealing with eating disorders. She has many, many years of experience!
She was constantly late every time I had an appointment. She didn't listen to what I thought my needs and issues were, instead forcing her ideas on me. She had this idea about the root cause of my issue, which she would not adjust no matter what. I didn't feel like I could trust her. She would very offended and hurt if I ever said anything disagreeing with her. I would NOT recommend her at all.
Dr Brenneman is not the typical therapist. She takes the time and effort to really get to know me and what my issues are. She doesn't always say what I want to hear. I had years of therapists who did that and I never got better. She says what I really need to hear so that I can make the changes in my life so my life can be what I really want and need.
Dr. B. is a wonderful therapist. The traits our family appreciated were her wisdom, compassion, caring, and faith. She brought our family through some really tough times. When I look at where we were a year ago compared to now, it takes my breath away. Sometimes she may not say what you want to hear, but what you need to hear. Isn't that the way it should be?
This was my first time and it almost tvurned me off therapy. She was often late and ended too soon. I feel she forces her specialty issues on you. And when told her I wanted to stop coming she took it personally and was very rude. It was very disappointed because she seemed like a nice pick :(
