Susan is one of the most amazing kind therapist. She listened very intently. She held me and supported me in ways I couldn’t of imagined through a very difficult situation in this time in my life. I couldn’t of asked for a better outcome.

Susan is nice and patient, she listens when I go off topic and rants but is always able to pull me back to what I was talking about beforehand. Which is nice with my Adhd.

Susan has helped me immensely with my anxiety and intrusive thoughts. I am new to therapy and she offered many resources to help me get started. She listens without judgment and is willing to offer many solutions to problems I was having.
