About me

I am a family and counselor licensed in Michigan with over 30 years of experience working as a counselor and therapist. I have helped clients work through a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and challenges relating to aging, caring for aging family members, and managing end-of-life issues. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma and substance abuse challenges. In addition, I have developed and implemented a program to help people working through eating disorders.

My counseling style is warm , interactive, and very flexible. I believe that everyone is unique and I embrace the diversity of people that I meet and work with. My philosophy is that everyone is entitled to be treated with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and psychodynamic counseling. I firmly believe that your needs drive our dialog and treatment. My role is to help steer and navigate based on what we discover together.

Change is difficult and it can be overwhelming. It takes courage to take the steps and make changes to seek a more fulfilling and happier life. If you are ready to embrace the change and take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you on your journey!

Suzanne is a compassionate listener and reviews what I have said as we proceed through our session.

I have only worked with Suzanne for 2 weeks at this point but I already feel comfortable with her, and I trust her expertise. It seems to me that I found the therapist I'd been looking for for so long, I am eager to work with her on the roots of my problems and to find the way through to better days. I am confident she will help me get there, she knows what she's doing. And she's being there for me day after day.

I’d just like to thank Suzanne for a fantastic service in which I felt in full control of just how I wanted/needed the sessions to be. She was truly professional and I am so grateful for the sessions that I was able to have with her.
Thank you!
