I've had a very positive experience with Susanne. It's been a lot like having a wise friend who you don't have to worry you are boring or monopolizing the conversation with. I appreciate her grounded approach and feel I've gained many useful insights from our time together.

Susanne is a breath of fresh air! I’ve never had a therapist before, but I think she’s probably the best therapist anyone could ask for, hands-down. She’s so supportive, down-to-earth, funny, non-judgmental, and she has lots of different recommendations and treatment methods, not just a cookie-cutter approach.
