Drawing upon 15 years of experience as a psychotherapist, licensed clinical social worker LaDonna Goldsmith continues to bring determination, follow-through and integrity to the field of social work. After going through therapy and finding herself, Ms. Goldsmith decided to pursue a career in therapy and reach out to others through her work.
