About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed in the state of Indiana. I have 15 years of experience working as a therapist with a wide range of clients. I have worked in a school-based setting and have a passion for helping children and their families have the best life possible. I also currently work with adults as well. I work with a variety of diagnoses, including anxiety, depression, PTSD and many others.

My counseling style is relational and warm. To me, the best therapeutic work is done in a casual, laid back atmosphere where the client feels heard. I believe in approaching issues with a balance of sensitivity and firmness. I have a passion for helping people heal not only their mind, but their body and spirit as well. The three have to be balanced for someone to be living their best life.

I am so proud of you for wanting to take the step of doing counseling to make your life into what you want it to be. When you are ready to take that step, I am ready to walk along side you in your journey.

I look forward to meeting you!

Susan is kind, understanding, non-judgmental and very good at listening. She provides support and good insight, along with being knowledgeable of holistic medicine that I find helps support my mental health journey.

I’ve had several video sessions with Susan, and have been very pleased. She is very kind and attentive, and in only a few sessions I already feel like I’m on my way to be the best person I can be. She is usually available to chat any time, as well. This has been extremely helpful for me and although I haven’t been in counseling long, I would recommend her service.

Work with me!
