Susan Jenczka, LCPC
I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in Maine and a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist in New York state. I also hold credentials as a Music therapist, Board Certified and as a Fellow with the Association of Music and Imagery. I have been in private and agency practice for over 20 years.
I believe every human has the capacity to grow in personhood, to find joy in life, and make meaning for her or himself. I also believe for every individual there are a myriad of factors challenging the growth of personhood, joy and meaning making in their lives. Former and current clients, in my practice, who were seeking guidance, assistance, and compassionate listening have expressed a sense of being supported and development of greater insight.
My formal educational includes a BA in Music Education, MA Liberal Studies, PhD Arts in Human Development, CAS Counselor Education; MA in Music Therapy, Fellow - Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music, Mandala Assessment and Spiritual Direction training/credentialing. I hold credentials in the states of Maine and New York as LCPC and LCAT respectively. My continuing education also includes Trauma-Informed Care & Counseling, Domestic Violence & Intimate Partner Violence counseling training and Clinical Supervision training. I have practiced in the mental health field since 1996.
In addition, I have extensive education and personal experience in Jungian studies including lectures, seminars, conferences and analysis from 1988 to the present. A depth orientation or, as sometimes stated, psychodynamic psychotherapy informs my counseling and supervisory practices.
As a clinician and supervisor my role includes providing:
- reflective listening
- guidance when occasioned in goal setting
- feedback for reflection related to skill development
- support of creativity and development of problem solving
- encouragement of insight development
- motivation of personal resource development
I have great respect for those who seek assistance on life's journey and look forward to being a supportive presence and resource for those who come to work with me.

Susan has been a fantastic resource and therapist the last year I have been seeing her. Professional, friendly, and always responsive, while I know selecting a therapist is always a very personal choice Id recommend Susan to anyone interested in learning more about themselves and working through trauma.

Although I still have some sessions left with Susan, I can highly recommend her to others. She is a good listener and offers helpful suggestions when asked.

Susan is great. She’s always respectful and knowledgeable and brings joy to the sessions. Her sessions are very interactive which suits me well. We are using art therapy plus talk and meditation. It’s great and suits my personal needs well. I feel a real connection and understanding coming from her. She’s a tremendous help to me. Thank you Susan!
