Dr. Donovan's background is in General Practice however he has extensive experience and knowledge in the area of Behavioral and Mental Health medicine. He is well versed in the assessment and medical interventions for individuals who present with psychological disorders and who may gain from psychotropic medication in conjunction with psychotherapy.
As we are all too aware, many of our patients who would gain from medical support for their conditions are too often financially unable to obtain this intervention.

Diane Foley, M.A., LMHC
Licensed Mental Health Counselor
Are you struggling with anxiety and depression? Have you experienced a loss recently or in the past that you are trying to process? Are you a parent struggling to navigate the challenges of day to day conflicts? Do you struggle with decision making and relationships? I hope that I can help you manage some of these struggles.
I have spent my career as an educator and mental health clinician engaging with individuals and families while they seek guidance in these areas. My experience in schools, homes, and agencies has allowed me the opportunity to help these individuals find hope and reach goals.
I graduated from Harris Casel Institute of Nursing with my CNA in 2016. I later became a trained MA for Urgent care. This all led me to became an Office Manager here at New Hope. I have extensive training in scheduling and insurance billing, combined with many years of customer service.
I am here to answer any questions you might have about billing or scheduling. Please call me in the office and let us get you on our schedule.
