About Me

Hi, I'm Susan, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of New York and I am so glad that you are considering reaching out to me! I hope that you will find me to be a good match for you and that we can start getting to know each other. I am confident that I can help you start feeling better and living life more fully!

A little about me...I received my Master's Degree in Social Work in 2000. Since then, I have worked in a variety of settings including outpatient mental health, foster care prevention, home based palliative care, bereavement services, and both inpatient and home-based hospice. My deepest passion and interest is in the area of grief and loss, and in helping people adjust to life altering medical diagnoses. I am also passionate about supporting my clients through the struggles of building a family, including pregnancy and infant loss and postpartum depression. Finally, I deeply enjoy working with young adults who are going through a life transition, such as adjusting to life after college, a move, the end of a significant relationship, or just feeling ‘stuck’ in their current situation.

In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, kayaking, swimming, and just being near a lake or the ocean. I'm a mom to two school-aged children as well as a Weimaraner, 3 cats, and 12 chickens! I am an active Girl Scout Leader and an avid reader. I enjoy attending continuing education seminars and workshops to deepen my knowledge and enhance my therapy practice. I often utilize mindfulness-based techniques in my approach and find that being in nature enhances my own mindfulness. I also like to use solution focused techniques to help my clients get to the root of their problems and quickly develop real-life solutions for managing them.

I look forward to supporting you through life’s ups and downs and helping you to fully live the life you deserve.
