My Approach to Helping
Are you struggling with dysregulating feelings such as overwhelm, anxiety, numbness, or depression?
I want you to know that all of these feelings are actually a beautiful way that your system is actively protecting you.
Yup! Dysregulation is actually….active self-protection.
You are not broken my friend!
Your system is coming to your aid to help you, protect you, and keep you safe!
Hi, I’m Susan, and I want to help you understand and embrace your Autonomic Nervous System. This is a beautiful part of what makes up so much of our internal experience and pleasure in the world. The body/mind connection has been the missing link for healing for a long time.
Many times, clients come to me when traditional talk therapy has either not worked, or not provided a change in their emotional experience. In other words, they may have learned cognitively how they feel but they haven’t been able to release their stress, anxiety or low mood. This change needs to happen in the body. We can’t talk our way into settling down, we have to show our body it is safe…..
As we develop a secure, attached, consistent therapy relationship we can understand and repair your nervous system. Through a process called co-regulation we will find support both internally and externally, settle your system and you will learn self-regulation.
This work is exciting because in the process of working together you will learn to manage difficult emotions, develop and strengthen regulating resources, repair relationships and make room for empowering feelings that help you to step toward the things you want in life!
Come experience a supportive place to feel safe, drop more deeply into awareness, and learn to feel at home in your body, mind and spirit.

I look forward to talking with you,
