How Can

I Help You

Connect better.

Be better.


Dr Rabenstein-Donohoe's work centers on sharing how to connect better through writing, media appearances, consultation, and seeing patients in her private therapy practice.



Based on more than two decades consulting, practicing, teaching, and conducting rigorous results driven research – Dr Rabenstein-Donohoe helps companies prepare for transitions/ challenges, change, and grow their productivity through increased ability to connect. Over the past 20 years, she has worked with a wide range of clients including hospitals, detention centers, partial programs for children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorders, inner-city schools, private college preparatory schools, college counseling centers, community mental health, community organizing NGO’s, and as a consultant for companies who want to improve productivity through increased communication. Dr Rabenstein-Donohoe loves to bring seemingly different groups together towards a shared goal.


Please reach out for references etc as these are confidential relationships and therefore we do not advertise the companies we work with. Instead, upon request, we will provide you with contact information  to speak with someone with a similar organization we have worked with in the past as we keep contact information for those who have offered to provide testimonials as needed. 

Writing / Teaching

Dr Rabenstein-Donohoe studies relationships between people and the ability (or inability) for individuals and groups to deeply connect through interpersonal communication. She is particularly engaged in harnessing bias to help groups reach higher levels of communication – and thus productivity. Dr Rabenstein-Donohoe's research findings (along with co-authors) have appeared in the Journal of Psychotherapy, The Clinical Psychologist, and Urban Education as well as an edited book, Bringing Diversity to Feminist Psychology, and many more. Additionally, she has presented at more than twenty conferences throughout the world. Dr Rabenstein-Donohoe is currently affiliated with the City University of New York.
