Couples Therapy, Marriage Counseling and Individual Therapy, Welcome To Donald Goodman, LCSW
Starting marriage and couples counseling or individual therapy is challenging. I truly believe that the only obstacle to overcoming challenges in life is commitment. My mantra for success is, “ In order to reach my goals, I am always willing to get up earlier and stay up later.” This basic principle is my commitment to a healthy life. I don’t always believe that it has to be difficult. However, I am always prepared to work as hard as I have to in order to reach my goals. As a therapist, I guide my practice in the same manner. You may come to me with a very serious challenge that takes time to address or your challenge may be resolved in only a few sessions. Together, we will determine which route is best for you and work towards acheiving your goals.
In order to reach my goals, I am always willing to get up earlier and stay up later.
The most important part of marriage counseling and couples therapy is making a connection with the client. As a father, husband, professor, and therapist, I pride myself on my ability to empathize with others. What I believe separates me from other therapists is the careful attention that I pay to this connection. When I enter a session with a client, I am present with them the entire time we are together and all of my attention goes into trying to understand their situation. Once the session is over, my attention to the needs of my clients does not cease. Whether it is returning a phone call in a timely fashion, keeping scheduled appointment, or being flexible with client’s life circumstances.
