About Me

I am a licensed independent clinical social worker in West Virginia with over 10 years of experience working as a psychotherapist and counselor. I specialize in treating clients who have experienced trauma and abuse including clients whose history may include abuse in childhood that negatively impacts them today. I have also helped many people who have experienced drug & alcohol addictions, anxiety, depression, personality disorders and bipolar disorders using schema therapy, cognitive behavioral and mindfulness approaches.

I am a warm and interactive therapist who makes suggestions and gives assignments in order to help you to increase your ability to cope, to reduce negative symptoms and to improve your communication with others. My approach to therapy encourages honest and open communication between us. I want you to feel safe letting me know if I say or suggest something that you disagree with. This helps me to know how to best work together with you collaboratively in our therapeutic relationship.

It takes courage to begin the process of making changes that can lead to a more fulfilling and happier life. I am here to support and empower you in that process.

I look forward to working with you!

Written by D.A. on Jun 23, 2017 after counseling with Sue for 9 months stress, anxiety, and family

Sue was great! She really helped me through a difficult period in my life. She used a variety of techniques to not only figure out my issues but to also help me attack them.

Written by L.I. on Jun 20, 2017 after counseling with Sue for 7 months stress, anxiety, family, and self esteem

She's very compassionate and understanding. Even the things I think are trivial, she takes the time to listen to and help me with. She helps me untangle emotions that I've been trying to hide and for that I'm very thankful!

Very easy to communicate with! Sue is understanding, patient, really pays attention to the words you write and doesn't judge or criticize. Instead she helped me see things differently.

Written by M.A. on Apr 13, 2017 after counseling with Sue for 3 weeks self esteem

Sue is a great counsellor. Using email to communicate has worked well for me, as simply writing things down has been hugely therapeutic. Sue has always been very quick to respond, and her advice has been very empathetic and thoughtful.

Sue has been friendly, methodical and understanding of my issues. I love how accessible BetterHelp has been and Sue always makes sure to keep my engaged. Over the past few months, she's helped me turn around so much in a really positive way. Thank you, Sue.

Sue is a compassionate, understanding and empathetic person. I feel like I can talk to her about anything. She truly has a gift!

Written by M.I on Nov 26, 2016 after counseling with Sue for 3 weeks family, trauma and abuse, and grief

Sue is open and doesn't practice the top-down approach. It is far more empowering this way. She is timely and handled a large chunk of information well. Her experience does come through when she pinpoints certain things. I give her 4 stars because no one is perfect, so that is as high as it goes for me.

Written by K.A on Oct 20, 2016 after counseling with Sue for 2 days depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related, self esteem, anger, and bipolar

Sue is great, I love talking to her anytime I want or need to she's right there.

Written by F.R on Sep 29, 2016 after counseling with Sue for 3 weeks addictions, relationship, self esteem, career, and bipolar

I have really enjoyed working with Sue. At the start, I wasn't convinced by BetterHelp's approach, but now I really enjoy being able to communicate at any time or place I choose. Sending messages helps me reflect on my issues and writing them down in itself is therapy.

Sue has been very responsive and sympathetic, she offers insightful advice and suggestions. She also uses questionnaires and assessments for personal development and self exploration which I find very enjoyable to complete and very interesting. I would highly recommend this service and Sue is an excellent therapist.
