About me

Hello! I’m Sue Goetz

I'm a psychotherapist for adolescents and adults. I've been working with teens, adults, and families for the past 15 years, and have been privileged to be a part of wonderful transformations in the lives of folks from all walks of life.

Teens

Parents… Are you worried about your teen? Have they pulled away or started acting up?  Maybe they don’t seem like themselves lately and you have to wonder what is going on. I’m an experienced, licensed psychotherapist whose been in full-time private practice for 11 years, and I work with teens, young adults, adults, and families.

Adults

I love working with adults of all ages and from all walks of life. I can help you see difficult issues in a new light, find solutions that may have escaped your notice, increase fulfillment in your interpersonal relationships, and provide a safe, judgment-free environment for all this work to take place.

EMDR

Do you ever look back on a past experience and wonder, “Why do I keep thinking about it” or “It’s over now, Why is this still bothering me?” Do you ever re-experience these things in the form of nightmares or flashes of the painful memories that intrude on your day? Would you like to be free from these or other unresolved issues? If so, EMDR may help.

When Anxiety Attacks

The problem with writing a blog entry on anxiety is that there will always be more to say. How can I possibly cover everything that’s important to say? I can’t, of course, and, while that honestly caused me some initial stuckness, I decided it might be most helpful to focus on how to...
