About Me

Hello, and welcome to Better Help!
My name is Susan Murati, and I am Licensed as a Mental Health Counselor in Massachusetts and as a Professional Counselor in Pennsylvania. I am also a Cultural Psychologist.
I have over 18 years of experience in counseling. Thirteen years were pre- license, and 5 years were since obtaining my first license. I completed my Bachelor's degree at Emmanuel College in Boston in 1973, my Master's in Public Health at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston in 1979, and my Doctorate in Psychology (Culture and Human Behavior) at the California School of Professional Psychology, San Diego, in 2003. I have treated clients with many general challenges, from trauma to family conflicts, to depression, anxiety, and ADHD, just to name a few. I also had a private practice for about a year, and I am a certified Clinical Telemental Health provider.
I have worked with teens while working for 4 non-profit agencies, and I was a high school and college teacher for a total of about 8 years. I like working with teens, because they go through a real transition in these years. I enjoy hearing about their experiences, hopes, struggles, and dreams, and helping them process their feelings, make decisions, and build an identity they can be proud of.
Before COVID-19, my focus was on counseling in person. It is important to me to connect with clients and establish trust and warmth.
Due to this pandemic, Telehealth Video has become more normal. I see that the relationship does not necessarily suffer from not being together in an office, and it can be more convenient for clients to not travel as much.

Great therapist! Helped me see things that were cloudy for me prior to our sessions and we connected. No more than 7 sessions and I felt a lot better about my life. Thank you Ms. Susan!

So far, I have had great experiences with Dr. Murati. Dr. Murati listens to understand, and responds thoughtfully. I can tell that Dr. Murati is very experienced in her practice and field. Personally, I enjoy doing “homework” with materials (worksheets, book chapters) that Dr. M sends to me because it gives me more independent time to reflect on my experiences. I am looking forward to continuing my sessions with Dr. M.

She is AMAZING! She has helped me out so much in the last 2 months, and I can't express the gratitude I have for her enough. She completely understands what I'm going through, and has helped me remember who I am and what I'm worth. I owe her for the ability to move forward with my life instead of feeling like I am confined to where I was when I started talking to her.

I've only had a few sessions with Dr. Murati but she's done amazing exercises with me and already helped me find ways to work on improving my mentality and negativity. I would reccomend her and better health to anyone and everyone. Especially my fellow adhd brains where typical methods of therapy are very non adhd friendly, the chat/message features have been a key asset, allowing me to brain dump ahead of time and Dr. Murati to give me a kind word of encouragement and prep for our next session. Plus all the reminders via text and app notification! I honestly feel like I'm getting so much out of my sessions already. Again, teencounseling.com and Dr. Murati both, 10/10 would reccomend.

I've had a few different therapists before, and Dr. Murati is my favorite. She's been a great help when I have real issues in my life, but also helps me with general self-improvement. It has been very eye-opening, and I am in a much better place than when I started therapy!
