About Me

As a dually licensed professional counselor and clinical addiction specialist, I have been in practice for over twenty-five years. My strengths include providing warmth, compassion and connection. I have worked with a wide range of adolescent and adult challenges including anxiety, mood disorders, psychosis and substance abuse.
I strive to meet individuals where they are and work with them to achieve their goals whatever they may be. I provide a comfortable, non-judgmental space for individuals to open up and be themselves offering partnership in examining challenges and seeking solutions. I join with others to empower them to be their best selves.
Change is often difficult. To achieve meaningful and life changing results, it can mean moving beyond usual routines and comfort zones. If you are hurting or not satisfied with aspects of your life, I would love the opportunity to join with you so together we can be the catalyst for change and new possibilities.

It is nice to speak with someone that understands how I feel. I would recommend this site and my counselor to anyone having problems coping.

Susan has been so incredibly helpful with me. She really understands what I need to focus on and how to get me back to that point. She is super encouraging and understanding. I really have benefited from her counseling and the resources she’s provided me.

It’s been great speaking with Susan. She really listens and picks up on things that I haven’t even said but I’m feeling. Sometimes I feel like she can read my mind. She’s been great in directing me with different exercises and I feel relieved when I speak with her.
