About me

Embracing the path of outpatient mental health since 2006, my dedication to fostering healthy relationships has been a cornerstone of my practice. Throughout this journey, I've guided and nurtured over 100 couples through various challenges, providing a guiding light through complex terrain.

In this significant span of time, I've empowered couples to navigate an array of issues, including but not limited to:

(a) Enhancing communication skills,
(b) Harmonizing differing parenting styles,
(c) Managing anxiety stemming from extended family dynamics,
(d) Providing strategies to cope with a partner's mental health conditions, substance abuse, or personality disorders,
(e) Navigating financial stressors,
(f) Addressing the complexities of blended families, among many others.

My therapeutic approach combines the robust principles of cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic frameworks. I have the unique ability to translate these concepts into relatable language and seamlessly integrate them into personalized treatment plans that cater to the specific dynamics of each relationship. Rest assured, every strategy we employ is rooted in evidence-based interventions, ensuring that our efforts are grounded in proven methodologies.

A hallmark of my practice is an innovative electronic testing platform. This tool ensures a precise assessment of all dimensions of a couple's challenges, while also allowing us to quantifiably measure progress—a compass guiding us towards transformation.

In 2016, I gained certification in telehealth from the Telebehavioral Health Institute. Since 2020, this approach has been my primary mode of counseling, offering a convenient and flexible option for clients, couples included. It's important to note that my telehealth platform is specifically designed for couples. Regardless of the device used—desktop, laptop, tablet, or phone—every participant enjoys a clear view of everyone involved, fostering a sense of connection akin to an in-person session.

Taking those crucial steps towards change requires courage, and I commend you for considering this transformative journey. If you and your partner are ready to embark on this path of growth, empowerment, and strengthened connection, know that I am here to provide unwavering support.

The road ahead holds immense promise, and I eagerly anticipate the privilege of guiding you both towards a relationship that thrives. Let's embark on this journey together—I can't wait to start working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. David Goodman. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Regain might be different.

Dr Goodman gets to the heart of the issues very well and helps us each to understand where the other is coming from. I feel very heard and safe to speak how I feel in my sessions with Dr Goodman.

Dr. Goodman is the most patient and kindest therapist that I ever met. His professional and compassionate approach to a patient's challenge is really encouraging and motivating.

He doesn't hesitate to challenge you to change your perspective for your own greater good.

Thank you so much. Very insightful and helpful for us. Good advice with a bit of humor tied in, Dr. Goodman is very real and honest.

I enjoy my sessions with Dr. Goodman!

Dr Goodman is an incredible psychologist and has helped my husband and I more in 2 months than any other psychs have in 15 years. He was able to finally assure my husband that he does have depression, which, in turn, has helped him move forward and accept Dr Goodman’s help and implement all of his suggestions. He was clearly able to articulate how alcohol has played a part in his depression and has given both myself and my husband tools for how to deal with his depressive days (which used to be weeks before we started talking to Dr Goodman!) we cannot recommend him highly enough!
