About me

Welcome to Betterhelp! My name is Susan Wolanyk and I am an LPCC-S in OH with 10 years experience working with moderate to severe mental illnesses in a community setting amongst a diverse population of Hispanics, East Europeans, Blacks and new immigrants from around the world. So many clients were filled with shame and fear which birthed in me a compassion and patience for our human vulnerability. I am a third generation immigrant and familiar with immigrant challenges that occur for each generation. My masters program also heavily stressed clinical humility in dealing with hurting people. My work focused on grief and loss, depression, anxiety, trauma and abuse with adults and teens. This is a second career for me after working in corporate settings while raising five children. I use an eclectic, person-centered approach which involves working with what motivates you and utilizes your unique, individual strengths. I will come alongside and have hope for you when you can’t believe what you want is possible. My goal, as a therapist, is to find solutions that bring lasting change and set you up to take your unique place in this world; a world that needs you and your gifts. My specialties are transitions, life adjustments, parenting issues, anger management, grief and loss. immigrant issues. Working together, we will build a strong therapeutic alliance based on mutual regard and respect. Congratulations on taking action to build your best life!
