Professional statement

Dr. Ericka Goodwin is a Harvard-trained, Double board-certified Psychiatrist that is passionate about helping you be better, do better, and live better. With over 16 years of experience as a traveling psychiatrist, she has a unique perspective that is enhanced by her relatability. In a time where everyone is busy and overwhelmed, Dr. Goodwin makes it a priority to create a safe space for you and hold space for you. She offers online sessions to clients in Arizona, California, Connecticut, Georgia, Massachusetts, Missouri, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

She believes in more than just medication. Dr. Goodwin’s philosophy is “minimal medication for maximum effect.” She believes that good mental health is a human right and is making it accessible to you. She will patiently guide you through a customized strategy to get you the better mental health you deserve. She utilizes psychotherapy, mindset solutions, and medication, when necessary. A significant amount of patients in her practice are not on medication.

Dr. Goodwin is a graduate of Spelman College and Emory University School of Medicine. She then completed her General Psychiatry Residency at Morehouse School of Medicine and a Congressional Fellowship. She finished her education with a Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship at Harvard University-Children’s Hospital Boston.


Message to clients

I believe mental health is a human right and is essential to having good quality health. You deserve to have the opportunity to have the life that you were created for, and I want to be part of your journey to have optimal mental health.

So many people are struggling, so the people you may have reached out to in the past for support may not have the capacity to fill that gap for you. I am here to create a non-judgmental safe space just for you so that you can be at your best.

Since I am trained as not only a Psychiatrist but also a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, I have a deep understanding of the full life cycle and how your childhood impacts your life now. I also am invested in developing custom treatment plans that include multiple interventions, including therapy and lifestyle interventions, to get you to your goals. I can prescribe medication, but in “minimal medication for maximum effect.” I’m not a fan of giving medication just because or giving people more medication than they need.

I would be honored to have the opportunity to be part of your mental health journey.
