About me

Hi ! Welcome to BetterHelp. I have been working at BetterHelp for the past 3 years providing individual mental health counseling. I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker and a Licensed Independent Chemical Dependency Counselor. I am grateful to say that I have worked in the field of mental health and addiction for 25 years, providing individual and group therapy. My approach to therapy is eclectic using models such as: Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness. I have also worked with family members and friends of people struggling with addiction and mental illness offering assistance with issue of codependency, communication and trauma.

In our sessions I will be vigilant in providing a supportive environment to explore your concerns, your goals and possible solutions. I believe in offering education on learning and using healthy coping skills. It can be fearful reaching out for help however learning about yourself with guidance is exciting and worth it.

I am looking forward to us working together!

Susan has been wonderful! She was able to listen, quickly assess my needs, and made recommendations for things for me to do that had an immediate and significant impact on my well being! I found her to be a great fit for me as her professional experience and situational examples where very relatable and relevant to me and my situation. I'm very grateful and appreciative for her help and support!
