Dr. David Goodman

Psychologist

About Me

I earned a PhD in school psychology from Loyola University in Chicago in 1994 and a master's degree from Indiana University in educational psychology in 1989.

I started my career nearly 30 years ago as a school psychologist and worked with children in the Chicago Public schools from 1991 - 1994. I did my residency in clinical psychology in 1995 at St. Therese Medical Center (Waukegan, IL) on a children's psychiatric floor. From 1996 to 2004, I was the clinical director of a youth development program based in Milwaukee, WI. Since 2006, I have continued to work with children, teens, and their families in an outpatient mental health setting.

I focus on building my clients' self-esteem and work with them to develop their skills and acquire tools for positive socialization, anger management, self-motivation, and emotional regulation. I teach young people how to use cognitive-behavioral techniques, and with children who have reached middle school age, I add insight-oriented counseling approaches

I treat everyone with respect and I craft each and every session in a way that addresses each client's specific needs. I’m available for online therapy sessions with individuals anywhere in Wisconsin, in which I am a licensed psychologist, #2581-57.

He’s a great therapist! I appreciate him being a great listener. He asks good questions that will help you reflect and see things in a different light. He gives great advice and does not hold back on honesty.

Dr. Goodman is the most patient and kindest therapist that I ever met. His professional and compassionate approach to a patient's challenge is really encouraging and motivating.

He doesn't hesitate to challenge you to change your perspective for your own greater good.

Dr. Goodman is amazing! I saw him 6+ years ago and he helped me through a very tough time in my life. I was so happy to be recently reconnected with him on teencounseling.com. He's easy to talk to, always listens and has great advice. I always leave feeling much better!

David is a fantastic therapist. I had my doubt about therapy generally but after a couple of sessions with Dr Goodman I really started to understand why I was feeling the way I was. I really benefited from our weekly sessions and have learnt skills that will help me deal with some of my challenges for years to come! Thank you Dr Goodman.

My first session with Dr. Goodman went much better than I had expected. He made me feel very safe and allowed me to express my thoughts and concerns freely. I needed someone to listen to me, and he did that wonderfully. I am more hopeful now, that Dr. Goodman will be able to help me with my issues.

Written by C.H. on Apr 16, 2022 after therapy with David for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, eating disorders, and anger management

I was abandoned by a long time therapist and came to Dr. Goodman afterwards. He's done an amazing job at making feel safe in therapy as I try to unwind a mess of issues.

Written by E.M. on Mar 22, 2022 after therapy with David for 7 months

In the short time I worked with Dr. Goodman he helped me so much, I will admit that I definitely looked forward to our meets. He was so amazing and after a while I didn’t see him as just a therapist, I saw his as a friend. I would talk about him whenever to got the chance, the difference that he made on my life was amazing (I’m starting to tear up just writing this). I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking into this program :)

My mental health has improved tremendously with Dr. Goodman’s help. He listens and understands my issues and provides great advice on how to solve them. I want to say I owe a lot to Dr. Goodman and anyone seeking therapy wouldn’t go wrong with choosing him as their therapist.

Unfortunately the platform’s predatory billing practices made me decide to quit therapy. Again, I’m very thankful to Dr. Goodman and I wish him all the best.

Dr. Goodman has is incredibly helpful, supportive and reliable. I am very grateful for his help in my mental health journey.

Written by E.R. on Dec 31, 2021 after therapy with David for 1 month on issues concerning relationship

Dr Goodman is an incredible psychologist and has helped my husband and I more in 2 months than any other psychs have in 15 years. He was able to finally assure my husband that he does have depression, which, in turn, has helped him move forward and accept Dr Goodman’s help and implement all of his suggestions. He was clearly able to articulate how alcohol has played a part in his depression and has given both myself and my husband tools for how to deal with his depressive days (which used to be weeks before we started talking to Dr Goodman!) we cannot recommend him highly enough!

Written by B.R. on Dec 13, 2021 after therapy with David for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

Very Happy with expertise and delivery.
