Dr. Goodman's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Goodman "I have been a psychiatric member of the American Academy of Psychodynamic Psychiatry and Psychoanalysis since 2004."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Goodman ""Two people getting to know each other and dealing with what comes up along the way" is one of the ways I think about therapy. Some people seek psychotherapy because of an issue that is clearly about one or more relationships. (Examples are a breakup, trouble initiating relationships, or problems with coworkers.) Even if your main concern seems to be just about you (e.g., you are depressed or have low self-esteem), your relationships with others, including me, become an important part of therapy. Do you believe others have the same opinion of you that you do? What you experience as we get to know each other can be much more important than anything I might tell you. If you have trouble trusting people and I earn your trust, you may then be able to trust others. Another part of therapy is looking at beliefs about yourself and the world—some of which you may not be aware of. Examples are that certain things are not possible for you or that it is dangerous to get to know someone well."

Patient Comments (1)

I saw Dr. Goodman for a few months and I trusted him, but out of the blue during an appointment he accused me of lying about the drugs I was taking and said that I had called the pharmacy asking for more anxiety pills. None of this ever happened and the pharmacy doesn't know where he got that...more
