About me

Are you feeling stuck? Do you have a desire for change, but are unsure where to start? Let’s be honest for a moment. Life is hard. Sometimes we need extra support. My passion has always been to work with individuals seeking to live their best lives. I specialize in helping individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, PTSD, relationship issues, and pregnancy (perinatal, infertility, pregnancy loss and postpartum issues.) I have a special interest in women’s issues. I have had a corporate career, and particularly enjoy helping women navigate the challenges of balancing multiple roles and life transitions.

Together we will work to provide you with extra support as you navigate life’s transitions and challenges. My treatment style is holistic, dynamic and strength-based utilizing cognitive-behavioral therapy and a person-centered approach. My goal is to provide a strong therapeutic relationship and supportive setting to promote growth and healing.

Over the last 12 years, I have had the pleasure and privilege of seeing many people make great progress. Therapy is not easy. Taking that first step takes courage. I look forward to helping you reach your goals with humor, empathy and compassion.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Suzanne Fortnum. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

I have been working with Suzanne for 3 weeks now and she’s fantastic. I was skeptical about whether I needed this service, but it is so wonderful speaking with someone who “just gets it” and is both open minded and also helpful! My favorite aspect is her questions - she pushes me to dig deeper and make connections. So far this has been incredibly valuable and helpful! I look forward to working with Suzanne more!
