(MA, LMFT)

About Me

Welcome! It takes more strength and courage to pursue change than it does to remain in an unhealthy pattern or situation. I can offer a warm, supportive, safe, confidential environment conducive to growth and change.

I have a Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology and am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in both Michigan and Indiana. I have many years of professional experience as well as personal experience with difficult situations, transitions, life stresses, and living in another country and culture. If you suffer from trauma, depression, anxiety, parenting issues, communication problems, chemical abuse, or grief, I can help. If you are looking for help with growth in relationships, learning more about yourself, staying present in the moment, transitioning to a new life phase, and generally flourishing in life, I am here for you. I believe the relationship between therapist and client is key in the success of therapy. I have a relational approach to psychotherapy and can tailor therapy and a treatment plan to your specific needs. Together we can look at unhelpful patterns in your life as well as work to heal the hurt life brings.

I would be honored to work with you through this very personal process.

Written by L.A. on Mar 08, 2020 after counseling with Susan for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, and self esteem

Susan is absolutely incredible. When I first signed up and was matched with her, I had a lot of emotional baggage to unload. Long emails every day for the first few days. She not only responded, but her responses were dead on, thought provoking, and validating. We had our first phone conversation last week and it was like talking to an old friend. She managed to lift years of stress off of my shoulders with solutions I never would have come to on my own. She is absolutely the blessing I needed when it felt like my life was falling apart.
