I have 22 years experience working in crisis intervention; depression; anxiety; grief/loss; divorce; gender identity/gay orientation issues; co-parenting; relational problems; domestic violence; trauma; sexual abuse; fertility/adoption; and career/life transition issues. As a Licensed Psychotherapist, I have experience working with individuals; couples and families. I am extremely ethical and am non-judgmental.

Susan is so easy to talk to, she really cares about her clients. I am so lucky I have her as a therapist. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs someone to talk to .Especially someone who may be hesitant about seeing a therapist. She doesn't make you feel nervous at all.
