Donna Strom

(LPC, NBCC)

About Me

I am a National Certified Counselor and a Licensed Professional Counselor with active licenses in South Carolina and Georgia. I have a Masters degree and Educational Specialist degree from the University of South Carolina. In the past I have served as a School Counselor, a Director of School Counseling, and an Assistant Superintendent. I retired from the school system in 2015. During the years in the school since 1996 I worked part time with the Center for Care and Counseling. In 2014 I opened my own private counseling business which has been phenomenally successful. Due to the pandemic I took coursework and began part time Telehealth. My interest in BetterHelp is to reach more via Telehealth.

Donna is very sweet and extremely professional.

She knows how to be helpful and mindful of your situation and listens intently as to what you are saying.

Donna was incredibly helpful in my road to healing. Specifically focusing on my anxiety, she was able to give me tools to help quiet my anxiety and also helped me develop new habits and thought patterns that will likely be a source of growth for the rest of my life.
