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.

LPC #2158 (Expires: 2022-06-30)
Dr. Goodwin has helped me identify my biggest challenge that has helped me with my anxiety. He is not judgmental and give me hope that I will be able to live a better life.
I’ve only participated in betterhelp for about a month now but already I feel like I’ve been incorporating what I’ve talked about with Dr. Goodwin in my present day life.
Aurthur is that friendly listener who listens to everything you’re saying. He has been wonderful to talk with for these past few months.
I’ve really enjoyed talking to Dr.Goodwin. He’s a down to earth person and therapy feels like a natural conversation. I’m happy I was matched with Dr. Goodwin.
I cannot speak highly enough about Dr. Goodwin. He has a knack for getting to the core of every issue and finding resolution. He is down-to-earth and very easy to talk to; I find I can be completely transparent with him. I am so grateful to BetterHelp for getting me connected with him!
Approachable, knowledgeable, and dedicated are all ways I'd describe Dr. Goodwin. He immediately took steps towards improving my quality of life with thorough work.
Dr. Goodwin is the best investment I made for myself this year. His support, directness, and candidness have made my life manageable after working two very stressful jobs and having close bereavement. I cannot recommend him enough. He’s everything I needed in a counselor and everything I was seeking in one as well.
Dr. Goodwin is such an intelligent, sensitive and laid back soul. Dr. Goodwin is incredible at his profession, creating a really warm and safe atmosphere to share in. He is a blessing in hard times.
Really pleased after my first session and looking forward to continuing to work together.
Dr. Goodwin is a godsend. He has been an angel in a very dark place for me these past few months, and I would refer him to anyone who has or has had issues to go over that may be weighting down their lives.
Thank you for being there for me.
Dr Goodwin is professional, kind and caring. He really listens and pays attention to you and your issues. I would highly recommend him.
Dr Arthur is a wonderful person and so easy to talk to. You can see from his life experience that he is able to relate to any situation with compassion and understanding. Thanks for all that you do.
Dr. Goodwin is awesome! I’m one of those people that fell in the skeptical group of what these therapy sessions could offer me. My skepticism led me to say “oh I can find therapeutic things online” but Doc really connected with me. He knows what to say not just to tell me what I need to do or think about. He encourages me to think about some idea or aspect and forces me to connect to the healing I need. He’s been respectful and courteous. A really supportive person and I do enjoy our live chats as well, as he actively listens to what I have to say or what’s on my mind.
Dr. Arthur Goodwin made me feel comfortable from the very first session. He is always there just to listen me talk about my feelings and things that are going on in my life. He has helped me a lot in just this short amount of time that I have been meeting with him. I would highly recommend him as a councillor!!!
Wonderful person. Listens to me, takes care in the things he says to me,
Always available and proactive at reaching out when I am disconnected. He ensures that I am okay and provides words of encouragement. Understands all the factors to maintain healthy relationships and understanding not only the why behind actions but also tactical things to do to improve.
Persistant and caring...
Arthur is extremely attentive and always takes time to push me to work on myself. He doesn’t just validate everything he encourages me to find the truth in everything and be real.
My experience with Dr. Goodwin was very positive overall. He was very welcoming and understanding with my struggles and concerns. I would highly recommend him to other BetterHelp users.
Arthur is attentive, supportive and compassionate. He's helped me tackle many of the issues and I've found myself on a path of improvement and self-actualization. Thank you Arthur!
Dr. Goodwin is so great I highly recommend him he’s a great listener very wise definitely one of the best
I just started working with Dr. Goodwin, but so far I've enjoyed it.
Within few sessions, Aurthur added a positive change to my life! Great listener, very passionate and caring. He is a life changer!
He was a perfect match for me!
They are fantastic. It has been helping me a lot to talk with Dr. Goodwin.
He has been listening and he has a pretty good idea on how to work with me. He has found ways that I am comfortable following. Overall a real good doctor!
So far the help I have received from him has made a very big impact in my life.. I’m still learning.. he supports me and he respects me in any decision I make and he has made it clear that the decision is ultimately mine but he will support me no matter what it is.. I have been to previous councelors who have told me what to do and what not to do..
Dr Goodwin is an excellent counseler. His method is very down to Earth. I also like that he gives additional reading to continue to work on things that we work on during our sessions. Highly recommend.
