Prior to starting her private practice in 2004, Susan served as a staff therapist at several social services organizations. These experiences provide the foundation for Susan’s clinical expertise. As a member of a crisis intervention team Susan provided psychotherapy and support services to families who had a family member diagnosed with a developmental disability. As a clinician at a psychiatric rehabilitation program serving adults diagnosed with a mental illness, Susan helped these individuals understand and cope with their mental illness. She also assisted them in setting and achieving educational, occupation and socialization goals. Susan has worked extensively with adolescents in residential placement, where she provided individual psychotherapy focused on depression, social anxiety, past abuse and traumatic experiences.
“I strive to understand an individual’s unique life experience. I provide a safe, supportive and empathic atmosphere that allows an individual to explore and understand their inner experiences and struggles.”
The clinical process is a partnership in which Susan assists people with:
Developing the capacity to reflect and be curious about one’s feelings, thoughts and behaviors. The capacity to reflect allows one to be in control in their life and relationships.
Understanding triggers to anxiety and panic is an essential part of alleviating uncomfortable feelings. The symptoms of anxiety and panic can be maladaptive ways of coping with difficult situations. Finding other ways to soothe oneself during these difficult moments is essential for easing acute anxiety.
Developing insight into one’s feelings, thoughts and behaviors. This allows one to gain a greater understanding of who they are and the life choices they make.
Improving one’s self-esteem and self-worth is a vital aspect of living a happier, more satisfying life. Understanding the many parts of oneself and gaining more acceptance of these aspects can be quite rewarding.
Developing and maintaining healthy relationships. Feeling more fulfilled in one’s relationships occurs when we feel better about ourselves and learn more effective ways to interact with others.
