Life transitions and struggles offer the opportunity to find greater clarity of purpose, more meaningful relationships, increased confidence, and personal satisfaction. To be human is to feel emotion, both the highs and the lows. We are all connected through not only these experiences, but through the relationships with those around us. Therapy is a unique and personal journey built on mutual trust and respect. My perspective is strengths-based, LGBTQIA-affirmative, and integrative. I work with individuals of all backgrounds, bodies, and beliefs.
My approach is individualized and collaborative. My goal is to provide a co-creative, connected experience that is emotionally safe, affirming, and protective, for you to gain insight and resiliency. We will work together using a respectful, caring and listening approach.
My studies have included training in minorities and domestic violence, dialectical behavior therapy, trauma focus CBT, play therapy, communication and conflict resolution. In addition, I am an experienced clinical supervisor, a certified rehabilitation counselor.

Susan is wonderfully patient, understanding and really made me reevaluate and assess a difficult situation at the time. It was the first ever counselling I had ever received from anyone & would truly recommend her. Thank you Susan
Dr Byers has helped save my life.
Dr. Byers has helped me tremendously with issues that I have in my daily life and it's made it easier to function with my diagnosis usually holding me back.
She has been incredibly kind and understanding, it can be really hard opening up to someone who isn’t. She’s also very helpful and gives me great resources for self care.
Dr. Beyers is a treasure trove of insight and transformative information
Dr. Byers was the perfect fit for what I needed in a counselor. I would definitely recommend her to others!
Dr. Byers is a wonderful, caring counselor who has a great connection and understanding of her patients
We just started working together and it’s been greatly helpful. I look forward to seeing what kind of progress we can make together.
Dr. Byers is great, she understands a lot of the meaning that I don't even realize I am putting behind my words and provides help based on that when I am hesitant to volunteer information.
Our interaction is still short but so far she made me aware of things I never considered to be damaging my life, work wise, relationship wise, it made hopefully that there is a solution. I'm looking forward to our future sessions.
Great helpful and responsive counselor.
Dr. BYERS was very helpful, interested and understanding. She helped me alot and is still helping me get thru a rough time.

Dr. Byers is excellent I’m very happy with her- she is so helpful.
