About me

Your stories honors me
As you have path sthat are unique to you.
I offer to walk with you …
To provide support over rough ground,
To offer tools for repair or new directions
Or just a chance to tell your stories.

I bring 40 years of sobriety, 39 years of parenting; 28 years of working with children, adolescent, adults and families in the areas of mental health, substance use disorders and crisis stabilization in settings including outpatient, residential and inpatient. Personally, I also benefitted greatly from six years of therapy as I believe a good therapist has a therapist. Thus, my style has become intuitive over time instead of using just one type of therapy. My virtual toolbox includes genograms, recovery based therapy, motivational interviewing, empathetic listening, gestalt therapy, cognitive-behaviorlal theory, narrative therapy and tai chi.

Areas of speciality include PTSD/Moral Injury/Compassion Fatigue; Substance Use/Abuse/Dependency; ADHD; LGBTQ+; Depression; Anxiety, Childhood Trauma ; Couples Counseling and Family Systems. I especially welcome people who may feel marginalized or isolated in this time of heightened stress as we are coping with a pandemic.

I offer to walk with you to provide support over rough ground, to offer tools to ease your path forward or just a chance to rest and share your story in safety.

Sus has been such a wonderful person to talk to. I was a bit unsure at first due to previous experiences, but we really connected very quickly. They have provided invaluable information to help get through hard times. Sus is extremely knowledgeable and explains the logic behind why we experience certain emotions and ways to work on improving that. They have been a tremendous help to our healing and highly recommend to anybody else.

Sus is really nice and very supportive and knows how to approach complicated situations. She helps us understand a lot of different things about what we are going thru and why, which helps us talk and communicate more effectively.

Written on Aug 17, 2021 after therapy with Sus for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

Sus is absolutely incredible. She has such an open mind; I love how non judgemental and compassionate she is. After our first session with her, I couldn’t wait for the next. She makes us feel so comfortable, we feel like we could discuss absolutely anything with her. Sus has so much joy in her heart that it’s contagious. She has given us the loving support we have needed to get through a difficult time in our marriage and has created a safe place for us to be open and honest. One of a kind, and an absolute pleasure to know. We both feel privileged to have gotten the chance to connect with her.
