About Me

Hi! I am a licensed clinical social worker in Virginia and Colorado, and I have made my home in both places in recent years. Nearly eight years of experience has afforded me the opportunity to work with individuals from diverse backgrounds who range in age from five to over 90 years old. Early on I expected to find a preferred population; however, it turns out that I just like working with humans. Commonalities and strengths are always evident to me, even in the face of struggle and adversity.

I have assisted couples in working through difficulties that arise due to problems with communication and misunderstood expectations. I find we sometimes unwittingly follow scripts set by our parents or by larger society, or we expect the other person to do so; identifying these and finding ways to be clear with each other can turn things around. Of course, kindness is always key in this endeavor.

I look forward to embarking upon this journey with you!

Written by M.I. on Apr 27, 2021 after counseling with Susan for 4 weeks on issues concerning relationship

I really appreciate Susan. She has done a great job of working with my partner and I thru our troubles. She both has great advice and listens very well. I was super anxious about doing this online , and even though there has been some technological issues due to connectivity off and on, it's been really great and I wish I had done it sooner.
