I have the privilege of working Susan who truly embodies professionalism and empathy. Her expertise and knowledge in the field were evident, creating a sense of trust from the very beginning. What stood out to me was her skill in asking insightful and self-reflective questions, fostering a deep understanding of my thoughts and emotions. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a trusted and knowledgeable therapist; her approach has been invaluable in my journey towards self-discovery and growth.

I would recommend Susan, especially if you are struggling with lgbtq issues and self esteem. She has a very calming personality and is eager to help. When you talk to her you feel like you’re talking to a friend. She also does research to your specific needs and environment. Tremendous help, I would highly recommend.

Susan has been very helpful for me to go over things from my past and my current situations. She’s always supportive and kind and listens. It’s my first time trying therapy and if I’m reluctant or don’t know how to answer something she gives me different phrases and time to answer. She also gives wonderful resources and recommendations outside of us speaking with eachother. I got lucky being paired with her my first go!
