All Kinds of News for January 10, 2018
Bridge House (UT) announces the addition of two highly respected and talented clinicians to their team this winter: Paul Goddard, Ph.D. and Sarah Cetlin, LCSW. As the Clinical Director, Paul Goodard is guiding the clinical team, developing programming, running groups and managing a limited caseload. Sarah Cetlin, LCSW, is a full time Primary Therapist on the team and is taking new cases. In addition to Rod Andrus, LCSW, James Healey, LCSW and Karen Nickl, Ph.D., Paul and Sarah round out a diverse and incredibly experienced team of therapists available to guide the treatment team of all Bridge House residents through their assessment and treatment.
Paul Eugene Goddard, Ph.D. Clinical Director Paul has a love for supporting healing and growth in fellow travelers through life’s journey. He received his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology with specialization in Child and Family from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 1993. His passion for research stems from his deep commitment to providing the best possible care and treatment for all of the people with whom he works. As a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in Utah and New York, he has worked as a therapist, testing psychologist, clinical director and executive director for some of the nation's preeminent treatment programs. Dr. Goddard returns to Northern Utah to lead the clinical team at Bridge House with the balance of compassion and clinical sophistication for which he has come to be known by the clients and treatment teams with whom he works.
Dr. Goddard’s specialty is building trust with treatment-resistant young people, who sense his genuine care and concern, balanced with his belief in their ability to face their “monsters” and heal. In a world filled with dehumanizing messages, finding that which is best within and sharing it to make the world a more beautiful and joyous place is Paul’s passion. Bridge House is more than privileged to have him on the team!
Sarah Cetlin, LCSW, Primary Therapist - Sarah has been focused on providing integrative therapy for young adults and adolescents throughout her career. Following the completion of her master's degree in social work at New York University, she worked with homeless youth in New York City at a holistic healing and career counseling center. Wanting to bring her holistic approach to an institutional setting, Sarah then transitioned to hospital work at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York where she helped patients and their families manage mental health complexities related to chronic health issues. Most recently, Sarah treated clinically complex young adults and adolescents at a wilderness therapy program in Utah. A native New Yorker at heart, Sarah also values healing through nature and craves the outdoors in her own life. She is trained in EMDR and is a certified yoga instructor. Sarah believes that strengthening the mind/body connection in conjunction with cognitive behavioral, and mindfulness-based interventions leads clients to engage in their experiences and challenges. The integration of mind, body, and soul is integral in her holistic approach to therapy and makes her a perfect match for the immersion-based assessment model at Bridge House.
