About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas. I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Master's degree in Counseling. I have been working as a counselor since 2003 upon receiving my degree in Counseling from the University of Houston Victoria.
I utilize an integrative, eclectic approach depending on your individual goals and preferences. I am certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and use this type of therapy as a foundation. Additionally, I have experience with many other types of therapeutic modalities which I combine with Cognitive Behavioral techniques, depending on your needs. My approach to therapy involves first getting to know you and understanding your goals, then using tools, techniques and homework between live sessions to help you mobilize your own self healing. My goal as your counselor is to provide a safe environment where we can work collaboratively to help you resolve life's challenges.

Susan is an incredibly gifted and brilliant therapist. She has a unique ability to share techniques that can be applied in practical ways yet make profound changes. I’m grateful to have found Susan and hope others have the opportunity to experience her amazing modalities and kindness!

Susan has been a beam of sunshine! She listens and relays relevant stories and has a way of making me feel like I'm not alone in this!

Susan is an expert at her craft. Just two sessions in, I could already tell she's experienced. She's very thorough in her approach but makes sure you're comfortable all throughout. Honestly, Susan has changed how I approach my personal issues. She guides me into understanding myself more as well as how to go about my problems using healthy techniques. In addition, she's very receptive to my thoughts and ideas, so it's so easy for me to open up to her. I could really feel she wants to help me get better, which I don't always get to see in other therapists. Susan also gives useful insights into what I'm experiencing. She makes my personal struggles appear surmountable to me.

I really enjoy working with Susan, we are a great fit and I feel like we can break down my issues so I can work on them and she gives me guided homework (my choice) to help me notice unhelpful behavior and look at how else I might approach a situation. My chosen style is CBT and Sudan is very good at it!

Susan is kind, empathetic and caring. She goes the extra mile with counselling and you can tell she truly cares and wants to see positive progress with her clients. Her style is gentle and compassionate and I truly felt heard and listened to. I would recommend her to anyone!
