Dr. Aurthur Goodwin

(DPC-Doctor, of, Professional, Counseling, LPC)

About Me

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.

Counseling Background

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.

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.

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 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 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!!!

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.

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.
