I am a counselor with 13 years of experience in Colorado. I have worked as a school based therapist providing therapy to students for about one year. I have also worked in a medical setting delivering behavioral healthcare to patients for over 3 years. I now work in a practice with other counselors providing therapy and supporting families experiencing poverty and mental health issues.
I love working with teens and adults providing person centered therapy. All of my clients guide their own process. I strongly emphasize autonomy in every aspect of one's life. I have worked with clients from all walks of life and find value in every facet of their story. I work comprehensively with trauma, depression, and other anxiety disorders. I have educated a great deal of my clients on what healthy relationships look like and if they are in an unhealthy relationship. I provide education and support around co-dependency.
My name is Susan Simianer and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Colorado. I live in a small town with my husband and my chocolate lab Izzy. My kids come home and visit often. They are in college in Grand Junction and were teens not too long ago. I used to live in Denver, so I understand living in cities and rural areas very well. I obtained my master's from Adams State University in 2013. I have been in practice for over 13 years working with adults, children of every age, and families.
My sincere hope is to be able you to become more resilient and sustain and/ or create healthy relationships with those you care about. Helping you identify your values, strengths, hopes and dreams, and gaining skills to help navigate this world with more confidence.
I would love to hear more about your goals and how I can be of help. I look forward to meeting you.
