Hailey Goodwin, MA, LCMHCA
Hello everyone, I’m Hailey and I graduated with my Master’s Degree at UNC Charlotte for Clinical Mental Health Counseling. My undergraduate education was also completed at UNC Charlotte where I studied Psychology and found my passion for counseling.
My interests include working with clients struggling with eating disorders, body image issues, self-esteem, depression, anxiety, life transition, and relationship struggles. I enjoy working with clients of all ages but have a particular interest in working with the college aged and young adult populations. Growing up a competitive swimmer and knowing the challenges that come along with the pressure of being an athlete as well as the transition out of being an athlete, I hold a special interest in working with this population, as well.
I came to find my passion for counseling through my own mental health journey and desire greatly to help you with yours. Having been in your seat I understand the fear of what this process might bring about and am committed to listening and walking with you in this process. I am dedicated to building a relationship with you that constructs trust and a better understanding of your story along the way.
In processing your experiences you will learn new ways to cope, how to challenge negative thoughts, find a place of stabilization in recovery, create balance in a life you feel fulfilled in, and learn to live fully.
Outside of sessions, I am most likely spending time with loved ones. I also enjoy staying active and although I grew up a swimmer, I like to say COVID brought me my love of running and being outside. I am always on the go and enjoy spending time with friends, family and my husband, Micah. I am a true lover of vanilla scented candles, ice cream, journaling/writing, a good cup of coffee and serving/helping others. You will always find fresh flowers in my apartment; my favorite bouquets are from the local farmers market. This is a special form of self-care that holds an underlying reminder of just how beautiful growth can be.
