My formal education has prepared me to counsel individual adults, adolescents, and children; groups; couples; parents; and families. I have completed specific course work in working with at-risk youth, LGBTQ population, individual with gender related issues, chemically dependent individuals, individuals/group in crisis situations, and clients with personality disorders. Currently, I hold a doctorate in professional counseling and a license of professional counseling. I currently work as a director of therapeutic service and student support service for a achievement school district in the Delta of Mississippi.
I have worked with the following populations: Elderly (Caring Days, Community Counseling Services), Intellectually Disable (Community Counseling Services), At-risk youth children/adolescents with behavioral, emotional, and psychiatric issues (Diamond Grove Center), addicts, and college population. As previously stated, I offer individual, group, and family services to individual with personal, behavioral, emotional, and psychiatric issues. My theoretical orientation is Reality Therapy, which is cognitive based in its approach, due to my alignment with William Glasser perspective on human nature and behavior. His beliefs align with not helping people find defenses for their negative or inappropriate behaviors, but helping them acknowledge their behavior as being inappropriate or negative and then to learn how to act in a more logical and productive manner.

Dr. Goodwin is thoughtful, attentive and kind. I think he understands what I’m going through, and he makes sure that I’m getting what he thinks is best for me out of the therapy.
How did we get so lucky to be paired with Dr. Goodwin?! My boyfriend and I love our sessions with him. We find the time so valuable, and we've learned so much together. Dr. Goodwin makes us feel heard, understood, and comfortable, and he gives great advice. I love his perspective on love and life!
Always a step ahead.
Dr. Goodwin is extremely welcoming and very easy to talk to. He never made the experience awkward and made himself extremely accessible when my boyfriend and I needed him. He has a very kind and upbeat additude while keeping it professional in all our sessions. He's honest and knows how to ask the right questions.
Dr. Arthur is understanding, knowledgable, and caring. My girlfriend and I find it extremely comforting to talk to him.
Thank you for the words of motivation. They help create perspective.
Dr. Goodwin has been an amazing resource for myself and husband this year. He took his time to understand and get to know us both. And gave us the tools to be able to work out our issues. He created a safe space for us to share. And objectively also helped us individually work on our gaps. It feels really great to have a neutral party helping us in the present and giving us tools to help us moving forward. It’s been a great experience!
