Jordan Goodman, MS, LCPC is a professional musician, licensed psychotherapist, and recognized leader in the field of therapeutic drumming. He founded Beatwell in 2009 and has since shared the power of rhythm with thousands at conferences, medical settings, universities, and more. He has been trained by the world’s leaders in both the evidence-based healing effects of rhythm and drum circle facilitation.
Jordan believes life improves when we feel meaningfully connected. He has found rhythm, our universal language, to be one of the most effective and efficient ways to achieve this. His interactive Beatwell Playshops help participants rediscover their innate ability to simply “play” in community. Programming often includes experiential exercises and facilitated conversation focused on mindfulness meditation, authentic expression, leadership development, and stress reduction.
Jordan has been featured on Maryland Public Television, live on Baltimore’s Fox45, in Baltimore Sun’s “10 To Watch Under 30,” JMore’s “10 Leaders Under 40,” and frequently in Baltimore’s Jewish Times. He has shared multiple keynote addresses at Maryland Psychological Association conferences, been hired to train health professionals of Sheppard Pratt and Kennedy Krieger, and regularly shares his work in lively university guest lectures.
In addition to Beatwell, Jordan continues to perform drums in a rock band, headlining multiple area festivals in 2019 and receiving radio airplay. Until recently, he was responsible for Communications and Branding for Ring of Honor Wrestling, one of the world’s premier pro wrestling companies. He led the overall branding and promotion of their event at Madison Square Garden in April 2019, selling out the historic venue in less than 20 minutes. He was also co-host of the Chocolate Croissants podcast which attracted over 100,000 downloads from over 160 countries during its year-long run.
