Susan is an excellen Therapist. She is kind and maks me feel at ease and Icould immediately trust her. She is a great listener. She guided me in facing and understanding my emotions and their origin, making me aware of what triggerd them and helping me detach from the facts that caused them. She offered me excellent solutions to deal with those emotions so that it would be easier from me to overcome them and let them go. In the process of my therapy with Susan I have changed for the better and I can smile again now. I highly recommend her.

Very helpful! I was going through difficult family and interpersonal issues. I’ve had therapy in the past, which I realize now may have taken longer than it should because theu were trying to have me come up with my own insights, which is hard to do. Susan is great in that she gives great insight, identifying things quicker and offering “tough love” solutions and tools that may be difficult to hear, but I felt better after one session.
