Rachel Goldman, Ph.D., FTOS is a licensed psychologist specializing in health and wellness, including health behavior change, obesity, weight management, eating behaviors, and stress reduction. She is Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at NYU School of Medicine. Dr. Rachel has a private practice in NYC where she sees individual clients and utilizes cognitive behavioral therapy to assist clients in behavioral changes that will promote healthier and happier lives. She also provides consulting services to other professionals and corporations, including corporate wellness workshops. Dr. Rachel has been quoted in many health-related articles, including CNN, USA Today, US News & World Report, and Shape. She continues to be an expert guest on Sirius XM Doctor Radio discussing disordered eating behaviors, weight management, and behavioral change. Her work as bariatric psychologist was highlighted in the June 2016 APA Monitor on Psychology . She is also a Women’s Health Magazine Action Hero and National Fitness Day Ambassador.

What do I do best?

I am a clinical psychologist who specializes in health and wellness, specifically helping people change their behaviors to become healthier and happier individuals. I believe I am great at motivating others to change their lives for the better. I occasionally feel like a cheerleader, but I have realized that people don’t change their behaviors if they don’t understand the why. My job is to educate them on that why, help them understand that, and then help them find what motivates them to make the change.

What makes me the best version of myself?

A positive mind and believing in myself. A favorite quote of mine for as long as I can remember is by William Arthur Ward. “If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.” I truly believe in this and think that we can do anything we put our minds to. As I share with my clients, our thoughts, emotions and behaviors are all linked, so if we tell ourselves we can’t do something then we aren’t going to be able to, but if we believe we can and think positive words to ourselves, then we will achieve whatever we want to.

What are my aspirations?

My aspirations are to live the fullest life that I possibly can while helping others achieve their goals. It has also been a goal of mine to write a book as well as have a TV or radio show.  On a more personal level, I hope to have a family one day and to be able to be a good role model and teach my children that they too can achieve whatever they put their minds to.

My Biggest Success?

I have many things in my life that I view as successes. I have a doctorate in clinical psychology and have also completed 2 marathons, approximately a dozen half marathons, as well as a sprint-distance triathlon. These are all amazing accomplishments.

My Most Challenging Moment?

After working at a hospital for over 5 years and becoming the senior psychologist in my department, I made the decision to leave. This was a very difficult decision as I made this choice in order to follow my dreams and venture out on my own to start a private practice that would allow me do several different things I have always wanted to do. It is often easier to stay put where we are comfortable, but this decision allowed me to accomplish things I never thought I would have been able to.

My Motto?

Never Give Up

My Favorite People/Role Models?

I have many role models and people that inspire me, including family, friends, and even previous clients.  Everyone has their own unique stories and I think it is so inspiring to hear what people have been able to accomplish, especially given their unique circumstances. My mom also continues to be a role model. Since I was a child she always said to “reach for the stars.” She has always encouraged me to believe in myself and that I can accomplish anything I want to. Further, other women inspire me, including Sheryl Sandberg, Oprah Winfrey and Arriana Huffington.

My Favorite Places/Destinations?

I enjoy being anywhere that I can be outside and active. I actually love the city I live in (NYC) and enjoy being a tourist in my own city. I also love traveling and have enjoyed visiting Israel, Greece, Italy and Spain, as well as different places to enjoy hiking, including Asheville, NC and Glacier National Park.

My Favorite Products/Objects?

I love all things that help motivate people to get moving and be healthy. I wear an activity tracking watch every day and have made sure that most of my family members have one as well as we do step challenges and it is fun to get my nephews involved and active at a young age.

My Current Passions?

I am truly passionate about the work that I do and helping others achieve their goals. More recently, I have also started to do program development and create events that bring like-minded people together in order to create communities where people feel inspired and empowered. One such event is “emPOWERed” which I created with a friend in order bring women together, provide women with an emPOWERing sweat, and talk about ways to practice self-care that leave them feeling strong, powerful and connected.
