About me

I am a licensed mental health counselor in the State of Michigan, with over twenty five years of experience, working with individuals from all walks of life. I have worked in hospitals, community mental health offices, substance abuse treatment centers, and in the homes of hospice patients. I have assisted individuals with depression, anxiety, and abuse issues. I hold a special certification in substance abuse. It is a CAADC - Michigan Certification for Advanced Addiction Counselor .

Many adult survivors of childhood abuse look for ways to numb themselves in toxic ways. I can help you heal from this trauma that may still impact you as an adult. It is understandable to respond with anxiety, anger or a general feeling of depression. You don't have to settle for this.

My communication style is kind and warm. I don't stigmatize and make assumptions. I treat others in a respectful manner, just the way, I would like to be treated. My style is to connect with you and look for patterns of behaviors that don't work and need to change. We work together to figure out, what would work best for you, so you can have the life you want. I will offer you support for appropriate change.

I appreciate you reaching out for help. Everyone needs help at some point in their lives. It isn't easy to make change but we can do it together.

At this time, due to licensing requirements, I am limiting myself to clients from the State of Michigan.

Thanks, Susan Gill, MSW, LCSW, CAADC.

Susan has helped me work through so many things I've been struggling with on a daily basis. She's helped me make progress on problems which have been eating away at me for a long time, especially trauma I've experienced.

Ms. Gill is definitely an experienced person; she was able to offer me some perspectives that I wasn't aware of. Not sure what I was expecting since this was my first time trying therapy, but overall I think it was productive. Thanks Ms. Gill!

Work with me!
