About Donald Rinker

Every human is a creative being, and each of us have different ways we channel that creativity into our everyday lives. Donald believes that each person is the expert on their own experience and that everyone has the capacity to become their best selves. By fostering and harnessing the creativity we all have, we can better craft solutions that feel meaningful to us.

Training and Education

Donald attended Loyola University Maryland, where he received a Master’s Degree in Clinical Professional Counseling. He received his Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Towson University, where he served the Counseling Center as a student advisor; in addition, he also served as a youth group leader for middle school children during his undergraduate career. His most valuable experience from this time was the opportunity to sit with people—adolescents and adults alike—and talk with them about the important things they thought were happening in their lives, and where they needed support to grow.
