About Me

Sometimes we find ourselves at a crossroads, stuck, not sure of which way to turn or even how we got there. Exploring those stuck points with someone who creates a safe environment for you to get to know yourself better, and grow towards emotional intelligence, happiness, and peace of mind can be the life transformation you are seeking.

I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for over 25 years. My work has been with those struggling from a vast array of stress related mental health issues to include anxiety, panic attacks, depression and bipolar disorder. I have specialized in addictions and the impact on families., to include gambling I have worked with individuals of all ages and backgrounds in private practice and tele mental health. In the last 10 years, I have specialized in working with veterans suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder at Active Duty and VA hospitals, including Emergency Rooms. Other specialties include working with those currently or have suffered through an emotional abusive relationship. The emotional effects of partner violence can be devastating, and the scars of mental cruelty long-lasting. One can be in an abusive relationship without it ever becoming physical; It can even feel like you're living in an episode of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. On one hand your partner can be kind, warm and otherwise normal. Then suddenly you are now the cause of their every problem, being controlled by shame and guilt. Escalating put-downs, increasing anger at your every move, with your requests being turned against you.. are NOT signs “you are the crazy one”. I can help you to find the skills needed to navigate your way back to a life of sanity and find your strength to decide what is best for you.

I utilize a holistic therapeutic approach, with many clients finding the most success with weekly 45 minute psychotherapy sessions, providing relevant skill sets to practice throughout the week, options of weekly podcasts or specialized readings, and having access to obtain daily feedback if needed. These are all offered with my service through Betterhelp. I have a strong background with CBT, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness. Providing you with an understanding of how the brain processes information and how the body stores stress is important to your healing. I also have experience using Dialectic Behavior Therapy, (DBT), Prolonged Exposure and other Solution Focused Therapies. I am certified in Equine Assisted Psychotherapy utilizing energy work combined with horse body language for inperson learning.

Suze is a great therapist who listens and responds with things I had never thought of. I really appreciate her perspective and how she has helped me see the cognitive distortions I create. I have learned so much about my own mind by working with Suze

Written by G.I. on Aug 04, 2021 after therapy with Suze for 4 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, self esteem, anger management, coping with life changes, and adhd

She was absolutely amazing and she was patient. I get some anxious talking to people about certain things in my life because the way she had me open up was great. Also the tools she gave me to start loving myself and knowing I'm deserving is something that I will always be thankful for.

Written by A.L. on Jul 29, 2021 after therapy with Suze for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, anger management, and adhd

Suze has a very gentle and understanding way about her, that makes one immediately feel comfortable when they first interact with her. She's not afraid to share her experiences, which is what makes her so relatable. Even when someone doesn't exactly know what they need work on, she helps guide you to examine yourself in a way that isn't prying or embarrassing. The tools that she provided to me, and the suggestions of books/websites/worksheets that were recommended, all were incredibly useful in my goal of becoming a better version of myself. I highly recommend Suze Maze in helping one reach their mental health goals. And understand that it takes time and work to become better. Like Suze says, it's yoga for the mind - and one doesn't just learn yoga in a few sessions. It takes time and practice. Thank you for everything Suze!

Suze is an amazing counselor. She is warm, caring, and wise. She listens deeply and makes you feel understood, and has an amazing insight. I was so vulnerable when I first started therapy but she helped me to open up and deal with a lot of unsolved issues. I’m really grateful for her.

I've had a couple sessions with Suze Maze and she has been very helpful. I appreciate her taking the time out of her day to talk and provide different worksheets that is very helpful with the issues I have been dealing with mentally and physically. I highly recommend Suze Maze, as she is very kind and very professional. I feel as if I can relate to her more especially with her knowledge in military and law enforcement. I thank you, and I really look forward to more sessions.
