My Approach to Helping

Susan believes that within each indivdual, couple and family are the resources to make change. Through psychotherapy, she helps clients identify and use these resources to grow and change.

Susan specializes in sex and internet addictions, alcohol and drug addictions and partners of addicts. She treats addictions with both group and individual therapy using a psychoeducational and cognitive behavioral approach.
