About Me

By reading this profile, you are already taking the first step towards living your best life. Each of us encounters numerous challenges, losses, and traumas in our lives. By the vary nature of being human, these are inevitable and unavoidable. What is important is the way in which we respond to and grow from these events....ideally in a manner that brings about positive change and greater contentment.
I have been a clinical social worker for over thirty years, working with children, adults, couples, and families. I very much enjoy couples therapy, particularly with couples who are motivated to commit to the process and engage in the hard work that goes along with building a new relationship, repairing a damaged relationship, or nurturing a long-term relationship that is in need of rejuvenation. In my experience, most couples work will focus upon issues of trust and mutual respect, intimacy, clear communication of expectations and feelings, life stressors and the manner in which couples can provide support to one another, and learning to be appreciative and have fun together.

Susan is incredible.

Written by G.A. on Aug 26, 2020 after counseling with Susan for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

I absolutely love Susan! She has been in this industry for a long time and was actually retired but has recently come back just because "she loves it" and it shows. She has so much passion and dedication for what she does and it has helped my fiance and I through a very dark time in our lives. She listened and offeres wonderful advice and exercises. We love Susan and are so grateful we found her! 10/10 would reccomend to anyone who is going through couples counseling!
