Dr. David Goodman

Psychologist

About Me

I am a licensed psychologist in Wisconsin and a member of the National Register of Health Service Psychologists since 2007. I have been helping adults (18+) with a variety of mental, emotional, and interpersonal problems for over 15 years

I am very easy to work with and I will always be sensitive to your needs and concerns as well as give you my utmost respect and compassion. At the same time, I'll challenge you, in an optimistic and uplifting manner, to overcome any of the obstacles between you and your living a more fulfilling life.

My approach combines cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic concepts, which I'll describe for you in common language and integrate into your treatment plan in a manner that meets your specific needs. I use evidenced-based interventions in order to make sure that what we are working on is backed by research. Also, I employ a user-friendly electronic testing platform ensuring accurate assessment of all facets of your problem and allowing us to measure your progress.

In 2016, I was certified in telehealth by the Telebehavioral Health Institute. Since 2020, it has been my primary counseling modality. My clients enjoy the convenience and flexibility telehealth offers, and they find no difference in the quality of counseling between the virtual and actual office.

It takes courage to seek help from another person and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
