Hi I'm Susan. I'm excited that you are considering beginning therapy and contemplating the prospects of transforming your life. What a great time to get started with change so things can improve on your quest towards wholeness, or at minimum, to reduce symptoms that you feel. We all get stuck in problems at various points in life and sometimes need help to get out of poor behavior patterns or other cycles. It's courageous for individuals to recognize this and desire something better for ourselves. I've been helping people overcome issues with depression, anxiety, panic, codependency and addictions for many years. The changes I see are invaluable and often cathartic. I'm hopeful that you too will begin a path towards overall health, well being, healing and individuation.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I treat any issue with depression, anxiety, panic, codependency and communication problems. I specialize in holistic treatments. I have additional certifications as a Certified Addiction Specialist and a Certified Women's Issues Specialist.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Seeking therapy is nothing to be ashamed of, actually the opposite is true; beginning therapy is courageous and a potentially transformative process which should be honored. Any individual seeking to recover from a problem and change their life for the better should be congratulated on beginning a path that can be extremely empowering.
