About Me

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!

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!

Susan is excellent listener. She lets me speak and softly interjects when she needs to add something of value. Gives great advice and coping skills. HIGHLY recommend.

I think Susan is a great listener and has a breadth of knowledge and experience that has proved to be invaluable to me. I appreciate her compassion and ability to guide me through some tough situations I’ve had to deal with. Overall Susan is a great person and I’m happy to have her in my life

Susan is compassionate, understanding, and very easy to talk to, even about very difficult topics. She listens without judgment and helps me better understand myself and my relationships. She is great about pointing out my strengths and encouraging me to be kinder to myself, which has helped me develop my self esteem. I always feel heard and respected during our sessions. Susan is wonderful!

Susan helped me through a rough patch that definitely isn’t over, but she gave me the strength to continue through it. I have to quit therapy due to financial reasons, but i hope i will be matched with her in the future. I will miss the positive reinforcement, the support, and the overall companionship and mentorship she provided me with. She is great at what she does. :)

Susan has been a great help to me through a rough few months recently. It’s like talking to a good friend you can be totally candid with. We are building a really warm and open therapeutic alliance and I look forward to our interactions each time.

Susan is fantastic. She's helped be bring some closure to my life. And I can't wait to see where she helps lead me.

Written by K.I. on Oct 20, 2020 after therapy with SUSAN for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, and coping with life changes

Susan holds a personal,safe and non judgemental space that invites awareness, acceptance and healing. Susan is so supportive and really lets me know that this is a team effort. She is incredibly atuned to
how I am feeling and knows when to take things slow ,when it's time to give me an assist so that I may
move forward and when to just tell it like it is. I look forward to
speaking with her and appreciate hearing her perspective on things. She's the real deal.

Susan is definitely a very understanding and warm hearted person! Even though my journey just started with her, by communicating with her, I feel like I am growing as a person, and most of all I am being supported and understood.
I definitely recommend her!

I was lucky to be matched with Susan, she’s exactly what I needed. Gentle but with perfect understanding and gives healthy, straight forward advice. 10/10

After speaking with her over the phone I felt a 100 times better and finally had some clarity and direction.
