Sue Nestler

My name is Dr. Sue Nestler. I have had over 20 years of experience counseling adults, couples, children and families. I believe that everyone can feel free of excessive stress and lead a more connected, fulfilling life. We all carry within us the resources and inner wisdom that can help us find our true path in life and create the happiness we seek.

Perhaps you are facing a crisis or life transition, or you have been struggling with more chronic stress or depression. There are times when anyone can benefit from having a safe space to explore emotions and get feedback from a caring, experienced therapist. Together we set attainable goals that will increase your life satisfaction.

The Healing Power of Relationship

Therapy Palm Beach

Research is now showing what most of us instinctively know - that healthy, secure relationships are essential to our emotional and physical well-being. Without secure relationships, we are vulnerable to low self-esteem, isolation, depression and anxiety. Whether I am working with individuals or families, adults or children, I believe the most important aspect of my work is in creating secure, nurturing relationships. A trusting therapy relationship provides a safe space for healing and transformation to unfold.

I am a certified practitioner of Emotionally Focused Therapy, which has to do with what is most important to us - the attachment bonds we share with our loved ones. The need for secure attachment is as vital to adults as it is to infants and children. I help individuals, families and couples to become aware of repetitive patterns of behaving that have become self-defeating and isolating. Once people understand how they get trapped in negative cycles, we work together to consciously create new behaviors and patterns of relating. Experiences that occur during the therapy session help individuals and families find more satisfying ways of being and interacting. People grow stronger as they become more open and connected with self and others.

My practice is located in Palm Beach, Florida. The setting is beautiful and tranquil, and my office is extremely private.
