My name is Susan and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, stress and anxiety, career related concerns, family and other relational issues, self-esteem, acculturation and transition related to immigration. I have also worked in individual, family and group therapy sessions in an outpatient setting. Additionally, I have also devoted a significant amount of time in working with international students and immigrant populations.
I have a warm and interactive style of counseling and draw from different therapeutic approaches based on client's presenting concerns, goals, and motivation. I aim to provide the best level of care to my clients as they work to become the person they want to be. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, solution focused, psychodynamic, and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Dr. Boafo-Arthur is kind and insightful, and seems understand me more than I understand myself, which is very comforting because I feel so understood during our sessions. She can decipher the underlying meanings of what might seem like a confusing jumble of words and emotions and use that to help lead me in the right direction towards self-discovery and improvement.
Susan is simply marvelous. She is amazing at encouraging me and making me feel safe. She makes me feel like a friend of hers and helps me to see new ways for my thinking. I give her my highest recommendation.
She is truly great at what she does, my first session was great, I explained and she listens and just like that from my explanation she was able to figure out exactly what I’m struggling with and I thought that was so amazing. I’m grateful I’m going through my counseling with her and I pray to receive all the healing I need and seek.
She is definitely the best I’ve worked with. She is very understanding and great at explaining how to work through things. She provides excellent resources and really listens to you
