Susan Ridenour


About Me

I am a clinically licensed therapist in Kansas and Missouri with over 40 years of professional healthcare experience. As a clinician with a strong background in human development, I have worked across life span and condition, focusing on issues related to aging and the family system over the past 8 years. Practice settings have included hospitals, inpatient psychiatric and addiction programs, schools, and working with people in home/community. I also maintained an independent practice in Leavenworth and Lawrence, KS for 8 years. In order to strengthen my understanding of the healthcare system to better assist my clients, I completed intensive leadership trainings and entered the field of managed care, which provided me an opportunity to impact care on a larger system level. Ensuring all individuals have access to quality healthcare continues to be my primary passion as a therapist. My specialty areas include helping clients with transitions of care, life changes related to aging and illness, relationship issues, coping with grief and loss, and working through career challenges. I consider sharing in people's stories an honor and a privilege, and strive to create an open and safe environment, without judgment. This is your time! It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.
