About Me

Hello! I commend you in taking the first step in addressing your concerns by reaching out to a therapist - I know it can be scary, but you are ready if you are reaching out to BetterHelp to find one. My name is Suzanne (Sue) Towne and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed in both TN and FL. Finding a therapist who you can build a trusting relationship with is of utmost importance - I hope I can be that person for you. Let me share some information about me and my career background.

I have worked in the mental health field since 1976 both as a psychiatric RN and then a therapist. My experience has been diverse, including inpatient psychiatric settings working with individuals suffering from eating disorders, chemical dependency, diverse childhood & intensive adult psychiatric disorders as well as a community mental health setting assisting individuals, couples, groups and children and foster parents living in the therapeutic foster care system.

I believe each individual has within them the solutions to their problems/concerns, they just require some guidance to find the path to their well-being. I use a variety of techniques depending on what you are comfortable with to assist you in achieving your goals. This is your path, not mine, I am here to help you find the direction you need to go to get to your desired outcome . I work with children, adolescents, adults, families & couples with a variety of issues/concerns.

I look forward to working with you to achieve your therapeutic goals. I am open to whatever communication modality you are most comfortable with and that can change as we move forward.

I know it is difficult to trust a stranger, but hopefully we can build a relationship of trust. I would be honored to work with you to find the solutions to the life changes you desire to achieve.

Sue is wonderful. I love talking to her each week, and receiving her guidance on a wide variety of issues. I feel that she takes the time to really familiaze herself with me and issues on which I would like to focus, and uses a variety of methods I find very helpful in acknowledging and resolving my issues.
