About Me

I picture life as a journey and am passionate about accompanying individuals in their quest for a fulfilling and purposeful life. I see the counseling relationship as collaborative, and I seek always to create safety and rapport, in a non-judgmental setting. I enjoy working with clients in restoring hope to brokenness, and healing from pain. I have worked with individuals for 16 years who struggle with various challenges including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, grief and loss, addiction, psychotic disorders, mood disorders, and relationship issues, among others. I especially enjoy creating a safe environment in which people feel valued and accepted unconditionally. I believe in a strengths-based approach that raises a sense of self worth and confidence in the client. I also like to encourage the practice of holistic health principles for daily living that promote life and growth such as mental, emotional, physical, social, and spiritual resources.

Written by P.A. on Jul 28, 2020 after counseling with Susan for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and anger management

I've only had a couple of luve sessions with Susan, but many many exchanges via chat etc. She is extremely attentive, polite, respectful and non judgemental. So far my time with Susan has helped me better navigate some of the areas of my everyday life that need work. She's also helping me to figure out who I am as a human being as opposed to a human doing, the latter historically being how I used to describe who 'I am.

Susan’s compassionate listening and support during our sessions leaves me feeling as if I have a supportive person alongside me all the time. I take comfort in knowing that anything I need to process or work on can be addressed via a message or in a video session.

Susan is a necessity to my healing. She listens to me and understands the issues that are causing me trouble. She talks through my problems with me until I feel better. I highly recommend Susan and will continue my therapy with her until I am healed.
