My name is Donda Goodson and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Alabama.

I have worked with clients ages 4 to 74 with various issues to include anger management, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, obsessive compulsive disorders, trauma and stress related disorders, individuals struggling to maintain sobriety, those with ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorders and parents doing their best to parent but find themselves struggling and feeling frustrated.

Donda has been a delight to work with over the past few weeks. Each time we speak I come out with new questions, new answers and new exercises to work on. I have come out of these sessions feeling refreshed, recognized, and much improved as a whole.
She is so kind, patient, and seems to really want to help me.
Donda has really helped me work through challenges at the forefront of my life, and also some that I’ve been unwilling to look at myself, that were a bit more latent. She has given me excellent tools to use to manage my anxiety and depression and I feel better than I have in quite some time.
She is very helpful!
