I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Jacksonville Florida with over 20 years of experience working as an Individual and Family Therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, and trauma issues which includes physical trauma and emotional trauma.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity and compassion. I do not believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, and trauma focused counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

I started using the app in 2020 when I was going through, not only a pandemic, but also terrible postpartum with my first child. After waking up at 3 am for the third night in a row with terrible intrusive thoughts about myself and my family, I just typed “help” into the search bar in the App Store. Better help popped up and I signed up right then and there. It saved my sanity and 3 years later, now with baby number two, Susan has talked me down from many panic attacks, horrible depressive episodes and celebrated my triumphs. I’m so very great full for her and for better help.

Such a great counselor . To vent with, receive input that’s non bias and understands the issue

I’ve really enjoyed having Susan as a therapist. She’s really good at knowing when I just need a vent or a chat versus when I really need to work on something. She’s easy to talk to and has helped me immensely. I would definitely recommend her!
