Relationships can be difficult for a variety of reasons. When we begin working together, I like to focus on strengths and goals that you have for yourself as well as each other. Providing a safe and secure environment for you to express your feelings, fears, frustrations, and doubts is one of the most important parts of the counseling sessions we will have with each other. I focus on building the communication skills between you, identifying skills and strategies to help regain the relationship you once had, as well as guide you into building more assertive behaviors with each other and increase your own self esteem so you feel confident within your own self.
I currently hold an MS in Psychology from Misericordia University and a Masters in Rehabilitation Counseling from the University of Scranton. I am presently a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor as well as a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have been in the field for 10 years. I presently specialize in trauma informed practices and utilizes CBT, strength based, and motivational interviewing techniques throughout my work. Over the last 10 years, I have gained experience within the field by working in various levels of care and with a number of different populations.
I have training in a range of modalities including art therapy, parenting skills, grief counseling, solution-focused, strength-based model, family therapy, existential therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy.
My goal is to build a rapport with you to help you identify your inner strength, a healthy set of boundaries, and guide you into becoming more confident with yourself to challenge yourself to grow and overcome your present struggles.

We’ve had just a few weeks of sessions and Tanya Goodman has made me feel more heard than I have in years. She’s really helping me identify some key things that I’ve needed to work things out.
Tanya is awesome. She is very easy to talk to and communicate with. We had a great connection and she has greatly helped us as a couple. I would strongly recommend her to anyone.
