Hello! My name is Sue, and I’m a Licensed Clinical Psychologist.
Working in the field for almost ten years, I thoroughly appreciate the opportunity to work with others who need support. Psychotherapy can help make a change and leave a lasting impact on one’s life. Therefore, I see therapy as a partnership of working together to create goals and using evidence-based treatment to help one meet those goals.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which I specialize in, aims to address the connection between our thoughts, behaviors, and emotions and make dynamic changes to help improve one’s life. Also, I have experience using Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Motivational Interviewing and use different techniques depending on the specific aims of treatment. My goal when working with someone is to help them learn tools and strategies to think better, feel better, and eventually be their own therapist.
Additionally, working with adolescents and adults and those experiencing anxiety, depression, anger, relationship issues, behavioral issues, academic stressors, occupational stressors, and life transitions is my specialty. Psychological assessment and teaching are included in my experience.
Being collaborative and making the therapy experience positive, rewarding, challenging, and meaningful is what I strive for. As a Psychologist, I strive to be empathetic, open-minded, warm, accepting, and comforting, but I can also be described as funny and a little nerdy! Genuinely, I love my job and feel fortunate to be those willing to be open, put in the effort, and trust me to help them make a change.
Having received my Doctorate and Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology from Widener University and my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from King’s College, I have had various training experiences throughout my education and career and have experience working with a wide variety of populations, backgrounds, and socioeconomic statuses.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my two small children, husband, and dog when I’m not at work. I’m a homebody and enjoy binge-watching good TV and movies, cooking, and organizing everything! Being outdoors and enjoying the beauty of nature with long walks and fresh air are things I enjoy.
Dr. Susan Minnick can provide telehealth sessions to anyone living in Pennsylvania and in-person sessions at the Hershey therapy office.

Life transitions encompass many things, including starting or ending a romantic relationship, changes with work or school or making any big life change, such as a move. Often we underestimate how these changes will affect us emotionally until we find ourselves struggling with the ups and downs of the life transition.
While we don’t provide couples counseling at Move Forward, many individuals seek counseling to discuss how they can have healthier relationships. Our therapists can help you learn new ways of communicating, setting boundaries, and other ways to have more positive relationships with others.
