Dr. Danielle Goodwin, Psy.D.

Dr. Goodwin is the owner and Clinical Director of Journey to Psychological Wellness, LLC. She has worked in the mental health field for more than 20 years and has been licensed as a Clinical Psychologist since 2003. Her extensive training and clinical experience consist of treating children, adolescents, and adults from diverse cultures and backgrounds in both rural and urban areas in outpatient, inpatient, residential, and school settings.


She completed her internship in an inpatient state psychiatric facility where she provided treatment to adolescents and adults. While completing her residency training in the Baltimore City Public School System, she also fulfilled the requirements needed to become a Certified School Psychologist.


While working in this setting, she served as the School Psychologist for the Special Education team. Her duties consisted of completing psychoeducational evaluations, counseling students, and developing Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) that address each student's needs and providing crisis intervention services.


She also provided individual and family therapy to children, adolescents, and adults; completed psychological evaluations; and conducted social skills groups for children and adolescents in an outpatient program affiliated with Lehigh Valley Health Network for more than 9 years.


Dr. Goodwin works with various social, emotional, academic, and behavioral challenges. She specializes in working with individuals who are diagnosed with Anxiety, Panic Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Depression, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, and Learning Disabilities. She also works with individuals who are experiencing relational and/or social challenges.


Dr. Goodwin's comprehensive approach to therapy is to provide you with strategies you can implement in your everyday life so that you can learn how to independently cope and to work on creating effective change to assist with optimal functioning. Within the therapy session, she provides a nonjudgmental and empathetic disposition so individuals feel safe and comfortable. She respects each individual's background and experiences, as she believes each individual is unique because of their particular journey in life.


She strives to establish a trusting relationship with each individual, as this is instrumental in feeling comfortable with sharing thoughts and feelings so you can work towards personal growth. She feels that honesty, trust, and motivation are instrumental to one's progress in treatment. Although she primarily utilizes interventions from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, the type of therapy utilized and interventions will be determined based on each individual's needs. She also believes that collaboration with professionals that include Physicians, Psychiatrists, and School Personnel is integral to providing effective care.


Dr. Goodwin is married to a military Veteran and they have triplets. As a family, they enjoy attending Navy football games, traveling, watching movies, and enjoying nature. During her leisure time, she enjoys going to the beach, yoga, gardening and spending time with family and friends.
