We blend diverse backgrounds into our counseling practices by offering inclusive and culturally responsive services and respecting our clients' and supervisees' communication styles, traditions, and values.

Cultural Humility

We prioritize building trusting relationships with our clients, where they feel safe to explore their personal experiences, and together we work collaboratively to support their growth and development.

Collaborative Growth

We provide personalized and client-centered care. We understand that seeking help can be difficult, which is why we strive to be flexible and responsive to our clients' unique needs and experiences.

Personalized Approach

Hello there! I'm Autumn Goodson, LPC, NCC. I'm thrilled to be a counselor from the vibrant city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

I received my Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Duquesne University.

Currently, I'm pursuing a Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision from the same university, which helps me stay current on the latest counseling theories, research, and practices and equips me with the skills to train and supervise counseling students and practitioners.

Finding a counselor that gets you should be easy. 

Hot take...

In my clinical experience, I've worked with clients on a range of issues. I'm particularly interested in cultural sensitivity, attachment theory, trauma, and supporting communities of color through my research.

As a high achieving person of color, I know how hard it can be to find a counselor who truly understands and validates your experiences while also encouraging you to reach your full potential. That's why I created Counseling for the Culture.

Whether you’re living your best life or crying for the fourth time this week, this is a judgment-free space where you can be authentic. So come kick back, remove your mask, and get ready to put in work.

I'm here to support you every step of the way!

My therapeutic approach and style adapts based on the needs of each client and the changes they would like to achieve.

Primarily, I use a person-centered approach because it prioritizes the foundation of the relationship between the counselor and client. I may also use narrative, expressive arts, and multicultural therapy elements during sessions if I see fit.

Each approach is filtered through a culturally sensitive lens, paying particular attention to the intersections and dimensionalities of identity, such as culture, race, gender, age, personality, religious beliefs, physical presentation, and sexual orientation.
