About Sue

Dr Sue BreckwoldtPsychology has been my passion since high school when, as a senior,  I volunteered as a counselor for New York City Hotline.  This experience affirmed my desire to choose a career path that would allow me to help others navigate through the most challenging times in their lives, acquire deeper self understanding, coping skills, resilience and mastery in attaining desired changes.

In the relaxing and confidential environment of my Cresskill New Jersey office I collaborate with you to help you to achieve your personal goals for happiness.

My training includes psychodynamic, humanistic and cognitive behavioral orientations.   I use an integrative  approach tailoring treatment to your unique individual needs.

I believe that the most integral part to effecting desired change and healing is the special nature of the therapy relationship. The warm, accepting stance of the therapist whose focus is on you and the pursuit of your life goals and happiness, the alleviation of any distress or conflict and who works with you in a supportive, nonjudgmental way can make it feel safe to explore your most private concerns.

In my 20 plus years in private practice I have worked with adolescents, couples, families and adults of all ages. I also offer group therapy and have special training in EMDR and hypnosis.
