Susan is absolutely amazing. I felt at ease right off the bat during our first session as if I was talking to a friend. She’s down-to-earth, funny, and always promises to be brutally honest even if it’s not the answer you want to hear. I would recommend Susan to any and everyone!

Susan was exactly what I was hoping to find in a therapist. I would highly recommend her!!

I can’t thank Susan enough for what she’s helped me, my partner and family as a whole accomplish.

My relationship is the best it’s been in years and I owe that to her. My household dynamics and relationship with my kids has improved. The tools and strategies she’s taught me is something i now use daily. It’s been an overall absolutely wonderful experience!

My teen loves working with Susan because she prompts him to talk about specific issues, rather than just a simple "how's everything going?"

Sessions with Susan have been completely amazing. She has helped me through a low point in my life where I was questioning myself and doubting my own belief about myself. She’s helped me realize that I wasn’t the problem in my life and that I need to focus more on what I believe and my own factors. She’s helped restore my self confidence and my outlook about my own future

Susan has been a life saver. I came to teencounseling.com looking to gain some perspective on how to get myself back on track mentally. The stresses of work, being a mom and being a committed relationship were taking a toll. Susan was perfect as she help me set goals, held me accountable and was beyond understanding of my situation. I appreciate her ability to cut through the fluff and give perspective. It was beyond helpful and exactly what I needed. I would highly recommend her!
