Dr. Barry Sussman
Psychologist, Personal Strategist, and Life Coach
Dr. Barry Sussman has been described as "a different kind of professional, one with a remarkable ability to quickly connect with a client, clearly decipher a situation, decidedly focus on a resolution, and positively guide an individual, a couple, or a family through dramatic and positive change."
A Powerful Combination of Training and Experience
Dr. Sussman's training and experience are unique. Originally trained in business, Dr. Sussman spent the first part of his career serving as principal advisor, consultant and peak-performance coach for hundreds of entrepreneurs, business owners, and professionals in almost every industry. In the process, Dr. Sussman built a 50 person consulting firm, and learned, first hand, about the struggles that come with trying to balance a busy career with a meaningful personal and family life.
An Emphasis on the Human Aspects of Success
Intent on providing cutting-edge solutions for his clients, Dr. Sussman returned to school mid-career to complete a Doctoral Degree in Psychology at Rutgers University's Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology. Dr. Sussman then moved to Boca Raton, Florida, and founded the Center for Psychology & Behavioral Medicine, Inc., which grew to be one of Boca Raton's largest and most respected sources for help with a wide range of problems.
Bringing Balance and Satisfaction to the Lives of Business and Personal Clients
Like many entrepreneurs and business owners, Dr. Sussman learned first-hand how difficult it is to focus on a career while maintaining a satisfying and healthy personal life -- particularly a marriage and a family. His own personal experience with divorce, as well as the impact of marital problems on the business and personal lives of his clients, lead Dr. Sussman to become a recognized expert in helping people create balance in their lives, regain harmony in their marriages and families, and, if necessary, survive a divorce or orchestrate a complete personal or career transformation.
