I am:

Intentionally

My prefix has a purpose:

An intent implies an objective

My infix is an atom gained an electron:

A (negative) ion (anion)

My suffix together with two letters is a homophone for somewhere dark and deserted

ally, if you add v and e, you get valley, which is darker than a plain and most of them are deserted at the feet of a mountain

I am an adverb and I have a goal in mind

Intentionally is clearly goal-motivated
