Susan Goldart has been a therapist working with individuals and couples for more than 30 years. She creates a trusting, collaborative relationship with her clients, through which they can heal from current and past challenges, and make changes to improve and vitalize their lives.
With couples, Susan teaches partners how to create safety for one another and relate with empathy and understanding rather than with judgment. Keenly aware of the courage that each couple brings in coming to therapy, she helps them to define and address their unique goals. Susan works with committed couples of all sexual orientations, at all stages of relationship, to enhance their emotional and sexual intimacy. She helps couples heal from betrayal when there has been a rupture due to infidelity. If a couple is moving toward separation, Susan guides them to create and maintain respectful relationships, in which the needs of their children are protected.
With individual clients, Susan works with concerns that often create life stress. These include issues of relationship and sexuality, career, and the negotiation of life transitions. When clients are experiencing anxiety or depression, Susan helps them explore the past in order to let go of old thoughts and feelings that interfere with the present, and by challenging negative thinking, she facilitates positive behavior changes.
