Trying to find just the right fit in a counselor can be an intimidating and overwhelming process. Speaking with someone about things that are troublesome, that you have been struggling with or that you can't seem to change can be difficult. I aim to make that step easier and less awkward. We will develop a working relationship that is non-judgmental, relaxed and goal focused.
I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the state of Kansas with over 25 years experience. I earned my Masters degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Kansas. I have worked in both the inpatient and outpatient setting. I currently provide outpatient therapy in a private practice environment. I have helped adults, children, couples and families. I have experience with stress-management, anxiety, depression, self-esteem along with relationship, parenting and adjustment issues.

I am 38 years old and this is my first time in therapy. I was so nervous about how and where to start. Susan has made it feel easy. I appreciate her and her calm demeanor and insight.
