Dr. Susan Boafo-Arthur

(NCC, LPC, LCMHC)

About Me

Hi,
My name is Susan and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, stress and anxiety, career related concerns, family and other relational issues, self-esteem, acculturation and transition related to immigration. I have also worked in individual, family and group therapy sessions in an outpatient setting. Additionally, I have also devoted a significant amount of time in working with international students and immigrant populations.

I have a warm and interactive style of counseling and draw from different therapeutic approaches based on client's presenting concerns, goals, and motivation. I aim to provide the best level of care to my clients as they work to become the person they want to be. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, solution focused, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Susan is an incredible therapist. She has helped my fiancé and I through some tough times, and always with a smile. Her style is to the point, which we appreciate, and find more helpful than others who beat around the bush. We strongly recommend Susan to any couple going through growing pains, she is awesome.

Dr. Boafo-Arthur is a perfect fit for my husband and I. She doesn’t just hear us, she really listens to what we say. When we have concerns she addresses them and makes sure we have a game plan to the resolution before completing the session. She is super intelligent and is really good at putting feelings into words when I am trying to explain how I am feeling. I appreciate her and all she has done for us so far and I am excited to continue to get better and grow with my husband.
