I’m having some troubles getting my format right for using

Your only problem is that the
-4 in your string needs a leading zero, as @deHaar indicated in his comment, i.e.
DateTimeFormatter formatter = DateTimeFormatter.ofPattern("yyyyMMddHHmmss.SSS'['x':'z']'"); LocalDateTime ldt = LocalDateTime.parse("20200915095318.883[-04:EDT]", formatter);
