My name is Larry Goodman. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have been in private practice since 2001.
I provide empathic and directed counseling and therapy for Men and Women and offer a unique, focused approach for Couples who are struggling.
I see patients from Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, La Quinta and Indio and from all over the Coachella Valley as far away as Beaumont and Murietta.
I specialize in helping women and men change long-held and troubling beliefs that leave them feeling "controlled", like "second-class citizens", "walking on eggshells" and "not good enough". These feelings describe what many women in relationships experience and it is exhausting. I also help men with anger and frustration (a cover for fear) begin to deal with underlying issues (old beliefs that they don't deserve or are not good enough) that prevent them from experiencing the joy of relationships.
With couples, I intervene with effective tools to improve communication, trust, intimacy and self-confidence, and build healthy boundaries, all of which which helps to improve the quality of the relationship.
In addition, I offer counseling and therapy for teens and children in Rancho Mirage. For more information on counseling for teens and children and their families, please see www.child-teen-counseling.com.
