I’ve had one session and already feel like I finally have a path to go on. I think our journey together will be very productive and can’t wait to start my journey.

Susan is very kind, gentle, and an excellent therapist. She checks up on me frequently and was able to accommodate my schedule and open up space for me when she’s fully booked. She has recommended books and worksheets that has helped me navigate through the challenges I faced. Thank you Susan for making me feel seen, heard, and giving me a safe space to process my thoughts (both positive and negative).

This is the first therapist I have found that doesn't seem to either pity me or just give me some random cookie cutter advice. I really appreciate that she actually listens.
