I have enjoyed a long career working with children, adolescents & adults in a variety of settings (schools, residential treatment centers, outpatient clinics). As a therapist at Jewish Family Service, I see a variety of clients who are addressing issues related to depression, anxiety, family/relationship/parenting problems, adolescence, past trauma, etc. I use a combination of cognitive-behavioral and supportive therapy, with an emphasis on Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, to help my clients discover new & effective ways to manage their emotions, cope with life's stresses, and take committed actions to attain their goals.

I teach clients the six core concepts of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to help them manage their troubling feelings/thoughts/urges, identify their most cherished values, and then take committed actions to live in alignment with those values. I also teach parents the very effective Nurtured Heart Approach to parenting.

Deborah R. Goodman's Groups

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

A didactic group to teach you how to accept those things out of your control, and commit to changing those things that can be changed to make your life better. Two primary aims: 1) to help you create a rich, full and meaningful life; 2) to teach a set of skills that will allow you to handle painful thoughts and feelings far more effectively, in such a way that they have much less impact and influence over you. This skills based group runs for 8 weeks, once every quarter.
