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!

Susan has been a fantastic fit for me. I can talk to her about any of my concerns no matter how big or small. Most importantly, I feel like she truly cares about helping me. She's not just giving me stock answers in order to fill a quota. She listens to me no matter how long I ramble on, and still manages to engage in everything I say.
Susan is very helpful and receptive. She creates a very warm, welcoming, and comfortable atmosphere and easily puts you at ease.
She is wonderful. Listens and offers guidance. Is able to really help you figure so much out about yourself. Loved my sessions with her. She opened my eyes to so much and I know the areas I need to work on. I understand why I do some of the things I do. It was truly a wonderful experience.
I have only had a few sessions with Dr. Boafo-Arthur to date, but she has been really great so far. I don't ever feel judged with her, she has given me some new perspectives to think about, and I am looking forward to the rest of my time with her.
The level of comfort and ease for me to open up to Dr. Boafo-Arthur was incredible. I was wary of the effectiveness of online counseling, but I have felt more accountability within myself using this form of counseling. More so than previous “in office” counseling that I have tried before.
She helped me realise what I could do to help myself.
She is very sweet, lovely and insightful. I appreciated all of the time she took helping me through a difficult time.
Dr. Boafo is very nice, she asks all the right questions. I feel comfortable talking to her.
Dr. Arthur is a wonderful woman. She listens and understands me and why I respond to people, places, and things the way I do. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a friendly face and personality who genuinely enjoys her job and listens like a friend.
I am at the beginning stages of this process and am finding it useful and informative so far. Dr. Boafor-Arthur is clearly experienced and well-educated in the field and I look forward to continuing my progress with her over the next few weeks.
An outstanding professional, compassionate, caring, and competent.
I have experienced positive changes in my life from working with Dr. Boafo-Arthur. She has helped me identify my stressors and mental traps that I fall into and has given me clear simple steps to take to feel better. She has helped me greatly.
So far I have spent one month talking to Dr. Susan Boafo-Arthur, and she is so lovely. She is so supportive and understanding, and she is very considerate and sensitive to my feelings. She is very, very, smart and also knowledgable about topics such as being a student in a different country and anxiety. I look forward to hearing her input every week. She is helping me work through problems related to living in a foreign country, generalized anxiety disorder, unhealthy behaviors in my romantic relationship, and my difficult relationship with my mother. She is not judgmental in any capacity and so it feels so easy to speak with her. I love it when she shares stories with me about her personal life because it helps me relate to her and feel more comfortable opening up. I highly recommend her as a counselor.
Dr. Boafo-Arthur has been highly reactive and proactive since the beginning of our exchanges. She has a practical approach that’s exactly what I needed and was looking for, and has provided me with actual tools to move forward. I hope we’ll be able to keep working together on my situation for a while as I’m confident she’s guiding me to progress.
Dr. Boafo-Arthur is highly qualified and this comes through in every conversation. She is analytical and perceptive, giving you the tools to self-reflect and work through any issue. She's also warm, funny, and positive. I learn something new about myself each time we speak.
Susan has been absolutely patient in hearing out my troubles, and has provided helpful information and her honest opinions, while being absolutely respectful of my choices as well. Thank you Susan!
