Dr. Suzanne Cormier


About Me

Hello! My name is Dr. Suzanne Cormier and I have been a helping professional for over 25 years. I have a PhD and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of South Carolina. As a committed helping professional I have a wide range of work experiences that have helped me understand the life challenges people face and the emotional discomfort they may feel. My counseling approach is interactive and supportive. Practicing primarily from a Cognitive Behavioral orientation I believe that one size does not fit all. I consider my client's needs and comfort level and then utilize an integrative counseling approach. My goal is to help my clients create positive change and well-being. Positive change is achieved through a respectful partnership between client and counselor. In my practice we build on clients' strengths and resilience, and find solutions to the challenges they face.

My work has included individual counseling, life coaching, university teaching and student counseling/advising. I have an extensive background in human development, specifically positive self-development, resilience building and life transition adjustment. My most recent work has been with clients experiencing anxiety and stress with personal and/or social concerns. I have particular interest in working with people who are new to the counseling experience and also, university graduate students facing life and career transitions. As a counselor with a background in developmental and motivational psychology, I understand that life brings many uncertainties. However, I believe that people reach their goals as long as they have the support and guidance they need to keep moving forward. Importantly, finding time to laugh and smile is a pathway to positive well-being.

My personal life is a busy one. I have two adult children, one in college and one in the workforce. My husband is a tech guru, and I am the human relations enthusiast. My favorite pastimes include volunteering at our local art museum, reading any type of mystery and checking out the latest funny You Tube videos. Thanks for reading all this! I look forward to working with you.

Dr. Cormier is a kind hearted lady who I am very grateful to have met. She is super quick to address any concerns I have, asks lots of questions, and eager to start setting up goals to help me grow and learn.
