About me

I'm a LIcensed Clinical Social Worker with over thirty years experience working in a variety of counseling settings and hospitals with adults, children and families who are experiencing a wide range of issues and problems. During our first meeting, you can expect a brief review of information you've already provided about your personal history and current circumstances and to discuss your reasons for seeking counseling along with the goals you'd like to achieve (if known). Based on the information you provide, we'll develope an agreed upon strategy for obtaining these goals. In addtion, most of the time, at the end of our first meeting, I can give you an estimate of the number of meetings it will take to get there.

I have Bachelor's Degress in Psychology and Sociology and a Master's Degree in Social Work. I have taught in my profession at the undergraduate and graduate levels, am an approved Clinical Intern Supervisor and have been a fully licensed clinician for decades. I strive to assist all those who work with me in resolving the issues that have brought them to counseling to ensure they feel benefited by the experience.

Susan changed my life. I actually feel like I have one. She is inspiring and thoughtful and remembers everything I ever told her. She is so smart and kind.

Susan is very intuitive and quick thinking. Easy to talk to and truly listens. Due to her impressive resume and years of experience she understands my problems and issues without me even having to explain them in crazy depth. It’s refreshing to feel understood without having to overly explain myself. I highly recommend Susan as a seasoned therapist and expert in her field. It’s nice to have someone who probably has “heard it all” and is open minded enough to offer multiple solutions to ones problems and issues.
