About Donna Dempster Gundy

MEd, LMFT

Individual, Marriage and Family Therapist

I graduated from Smith College and from Columbia University with a degree in Counseling Psychology. After working for several years as a high school guidance counselor, I left for postgraduate training with the Center for Family Learning, a clinical institute dedicated to the advanced training of marriage and family therapists. As a current member of the faculty, I have been a research member of the Child and Adolescent Project, the Chronic Illness Project and, for the last decade, the Marital Project. The projects are designed to research issues that confront families with the goal of developing protocols to help therapists help families and couples. My expertise is in couple issues such as communication, affairs, substance abuse and step family issues. I work with adolescents and children within the framework of the family as well.

I have a practice in Rye, NY and Essex,CT and am licensed in both states. Since the advent of Covid I have been practicing via telehealth, so I am able to see couples from both states.I am married with three grown children. I believe that anyone seeking treatment should be comfortable with the person they see and vice versa. Every first session is a consultation where we both decide if we want to work together. Most insurance plans accept me out of network. Please feel free to give me a call with any questions any time.
