Don Hagen

Honest, Sincere, Believable: the read you need.

Voice Description

AudioFile Magazine Reviews (2013):

"Don Hagen delivers this gem of a book with a steady supply of the therapist's warmth and wisdom. Hagen's appealing tonal complexity and emotional depth convey the comforting reassurance you'e expect from a 77-year old psychiatrist."

"With his intelligent phrasing, clear enunciation and mature-sounding sonority, Hagen's performance promotes engagement and thoughtful reflection."
