About Me

Hello and welcome,

My name is Dr. Susan Hanson. I’m a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the state of Illinois. As a parent and a therapist, I understand the need for teens and adults to continue to seek counsel & guidance as they navigate challenges in life.

This is the beginning of your journey, a safe place, for you to overcome complex behavioral concerns. A place where you can focus on successfully developing the skills needed to create the productive life that you want.

I offer Premiere Telehealth Treatment & Behavioral Health in a supportive environment. I specialize in mood & anxiety disorders, trauma recovery, military & first responders, family & relationship topics; boundaries, family roles, healthy communication, and more.

I refer out clients who have drug & alcohol addictions, and clients with suicidal thoughts, as their primary diagnosis or are a large part of their current lifestyle.

I've had hundreds of clients over the years, and every one of them has had their own story to tell. No two people have the same situation. The most important factor in effective therapy is when the therapist and client collaborate and create a sense of meaning and hope. I will help you learn how to successfully manage symptoms, overcome challenges, and develop the skills needed to return to the productive life that you want.

I am here to help you through this difficult time.
Start your journey now.

Dr. Hanson always offers great insight on the situations that I’m going through. She offers a lot of help outside of the weekly video session. She really seems to know how to help people and loves doing it.

I feel totally confident when talking and sharing with Dr Hanson. She listens and helps me to identify things and face issues that I hold back and needs to face. She's great, and I am very pleased to share this experience with her. I actually be looking forward to our next session, when I was such a skeptic before.
I appreciate you Dr Hanson and Thank you!

Work with me!
