Goodman Psychotherapy Associates offers individual and couples therapy.

What to Expect AT My first session

The first session will last between 45 min to an hour and will focus on getting to know each other and planning treatment goals. Together you and Dr. Goodman will go over the forms and clarify any issues. During the first session you may be asked questions about your symptoms, your relationships, your past experiences and your family history among other subjects. You will have a chance to ask any questions you'd like. This is when we will figure out if we are a good fit. If not, Dr. Goodman will offer referrals elsewhere.

  • issues with racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia and other discrimination

Not a good fit for Goodman Psychotherapy Associates

Because of the limits of this private practice, people struggling with these specific issues may be better served elsewhere.

  • severe eating disorders
  • anyone requiring more than weekly contact and who needs greater access to their providers
