Megan Goodwin, Psy.D.

Megan Goodwin View Specialties

Dr. Goodwin entered into this field because she believes in the power of human connection and the importance of interpersonal relationships of all types. It is her goal that through the process of therapy, clients will have stronger, more compassionate relationships with themselves, and the people in their lives.

Dr. Goodwin's theraputic approach uses evidence-based treatments that have a compassionate, strength-based leaning. She is trained in CBT (Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy), an approach that focuses on how thoughts, feelings and behavior interact. She also employs Positive Psychology principles, an evidence-based treatment, that focuses on increasing client's self-compassion, tapping into client values, strengths and goals. She believes strongly in finding the balance between action and acceptance, both in therapy and in life.

Dr. Goodwin is warm, active, and non-judgmental. She understands that starting therapy can be daunting and stressful and does her best to make the process as comfortable as possible. She will happily provide a free phone consultation so that you can decide if you'd like to schedule an appointment. The first session, an assessment session is provided at half of the regular rate. This is done in the spirit of encouraging people to take that first step, often the most difficult step of all, to pick up the phone and call (or email).

Dr. Goodwin also conducts bariatric surgery psychological evaluations. Please inquire if you are interested.
