You have just taken your first step towards a happier life! I believe counseling is a sign of strength and shows that you are ready to make positive changes to fully benefit your mental growth and wellbeing. While you may still be anxious, possibly depressed, you now know that you actually have the strength to embark on the path of healing and growth. Should you be here out of concern for a loved one, your child, or your relationship with someone, your concern and willingness to take action can be a first step in healing for both of you. We all have the innate desire and ability to heal ourselves. Professional counseling can significantly accelerate this growth! Maybe I can help. Let me introduce myself:
My name is Susan Sogar, LMHC, NCC and I am a licensed mental health counselor in Florida. I graduated from the University of North Texas in 2015. I am a nationally certified counselor and trained in EMDR. My philosophy is based on the belief that we need an environment of support, understanding, and unconditional acceptance in order to heal and grow. Therefore, my first focus in counseling is to develop a relationship of trust and understanding. My second focal point is on identifying your strengths, some of which you may not even have discovered. Third, my focus is pragmatic and positive. I will help you identify practical, positive solutions for the future. As an “expat” from Germany who has also lived in a number of other countries abroad for many years, I deeply honor the cultural and spiritual identity of my clients. I have counseled clients from many different religious and cultural backgrounds and therefore appreciate all political, religious or even philosophical convictions as valid attempts to find meaning in life.
You may still have a lot of questions before you're ready to move on to the next step. Why not pick up the phone? I am here for you now.

Susanne helps me to develop myself to a better being then I've been the day before.
With highly professional behaviour and a very good personal connection, direct advice and time to reflect on myself, for me Susanne is one of the best people i worked with.

In a nutshell, I've always staunchly believed that nobody, much less a therapist, would ever understand me and what I've been through. I can express how happy I am to have been proven fundamentally wrong in my assumption.

Susanne is a wonderful counselor who understood me from my first session! She sees right to the core and doesn’t offer easy ways or quick fixes but rather guides me to look into myself for self-acceptance and deeper answers.

I really appreciate Susanne Sogar as a counselor and as a person as well. It seems like most the time. that she really knows what to say and what you need to hear. Everything she’s doing is helpfull. She’s always trying to find a way for a solution with you. But also trying to helping people help themselves. She’s super friendly and i definitely recommend her.
