Ken helped me dramatically reduce my day to day anxiety by teaching me many techniques I am able to use during different situations when I feel anxious. He has been understanding and objective, not only empathizing with my struggles but providing me with concrete ways in which I can overcome them. His help has been crucial in helping me work towards improving my anxiety and depression.

Ken is very good at helping people with anxiety disorders, and he’s good at coaching people through techniques to combat their anxiety. But if you’re looking for a traditional talk therapist, definitely look elsewhere. He lacks patience and compassion. He always seems to be on a tight schedule and has a set agenda. You will leave his office feeling like you’re no more than a walking mental health condition, rather than as a PERSON who suffers from a MH condition.

After biting my nails for 60 years, Ken got me to stop in 4 sessions. He is easy to talk to.

Ken is professional, effective, and a good listener. He specializes in OCD, and he truly knows his stuff when it comes to anxiety and OCD. He is very trustworthy. Saved my life in a way.

Great therapist for anxiety related issues. Ken helped me conquer my fear of driving on the freeways. After experiencing a panic attack and not driving the freeways for over a year, I can now drive most freeways and am no longer constrained by this issue. He offers practical tools and advice and is there with you every step of the way. Highly recommend.

First of all,I am greatful to have Dr. KEN AS MY DR./GUIDANCE. Although, I did have set backs he would always lift me up with useful tools. That monster will try to give you the opportunity to feel your worst!Trust me I know! My motto: Just step onto the plate and I will strike your a** out! You have returned my real me... back to me! The hardest part is letting go.. I mean the office visits.. I know I will make it on my own. But, I know someday there will be no monsters lingering here! Thanks

There are honestly so many great things to say about Ken I would need to write a book about his gifted ability help others. When I first started meeting with him my life was spiraling out of control. I was having constant panic attacks that led to not being able to be a productive person. I could not go to school or do anything productive but lay in bed in misery. With Kens guidance and immense wisdom he gave me hope and helped me over come my fears and am happily living and enjoying life again.

I went to Ken because I was suffering with acute anxiety. He was extremely knowledgeable, patient, and supportive. In moments of panic I'd reach out to him via telephone or text and his gentle, reassuring voice calmed me. Ken taught me how to manage my anxiety with a variety of tools. This was valuable, because I didn't want to take anti-anxiety meds. I wanted to learn to cope. The coping skills Ken taught me cured my anxiety disorder. I no longer suffer from acute anxiety. I'm very grateful!

My 12 year old son experienced anxiety attacks and fears in recent light of terror attacks and travels this summer. As the days passed, things were getting worse and out of control. We met Ken and immediately saw results the same day. I saw my son doing breathing exercises talking to his monster and using all the tools Dr. Goodman taught him. In 6 sessions my son is a new kid. He is excited about life again! As my son said, "he is awesome and he is the best."

my experience with Ken was amazing. The group therapy really helped me with my social anxiety and some of my other anxieties. I am not completely 100% anxiety free now but I have the steps to get there. I learned so much and I hope to stick to everything I learned. I highly recommend taking this group therapy class with anyone with social anxiety. Yes, it's very uncomfortable but it is very rewarding.

Ken completely changed my life. I could go on & on about how he helped me deal with anxiety that was ruining & controlling my life. He gave me the tools to be able to conquer both my OCD & anxiety. Ken has made me feel so supported. Before Ken, I was absolutely miserable & couldn't enjoy things in life. It interfered with daily activities & many relationships in my life. After Ken & the treatment, I am able to enjoy life, friendships, and even work. I will reccomend Ken every chance I get!

I would recommend Ken Goodman without hesitation. I have known Ken for over 14 years. I have seen him, my children have seen him and I have referred friends and family. Ken not only listens, he offers advise, thought provoking questions and tools for getting through situations. Ken was able to give me tools that I can use ongoing for my anxiety that are invaluable. Whether it's simple anxiety attack or a major ongoing situation I know what tools to use thanks to Ken.

I was a mess when I met Ken: high blood pressure, anxiety,sleeplessness, only tools i had were medication, I didn't want prescription drugs all the time. My primary suggested Yoga & Anxiety Therapy, I found Ken on the internet. Within weeks I had tools I could use to talk me down from stressful situations -breathing exercises & mantras. Ken didn't try to psycho analyze me, he's more like an MD, without drugs - the tools he gave me will last a lifetime. I'm a different person now thanks to Ken!

My son started seeing Ken for his OCD about a year ago. Before my son began treatment, his OCD was taking control of his life. Ken taught him the skills necessary to take control of his OCD. Ken is an extremely effective therapist who genuinely cares about his patients. I highly recommend Ken to anyone struggling with anxiety or OCD.

I've been seeing Ken for almost two years now. To put it bluntly, he is responsible for helping me to reclaim my life. I have lived with a serious anxiety disorder for my whole life, which eventually led me to living an agoraphobic life. I rarely left my home for years, and eventually stopped altogether. Ken has taught and gifted me with the tools I needed to help me save myself. I'm now an active member of my community, doing volunteer work and even traveling all over the world! Thank you Ken!!

Words cannot express how grateful I am for Ken. I was not mentally stable when I started as his patient and he has helped me turn my life around. He helped me through crazy bosses at work and through a divorce. I can't thank him enough for what he has done for my life. He is an amazing therapist and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!
