It is my genuine hope that you will embark on a therapeutic path that will offer you a renewed sense of understanding , self-appreciation, and some level of satisfaction in your life.

Susan is extremely empathetic, wonderful listener and a true guide , I would say she has a commendable strength of attaining insight into a person’s thought . Loved being under her compassionate guidance . Will definitely refer her to everyone and would come back to her if I ever need her again in my life.

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.

She really listens to what I have to say and gives suggestions on how to deal with the issues at hand. She asks questions to make sure she understands what I’m saying correctly.
