SUSAN SCHANEN

(LCSW)

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Jacksonville Florida with over 20 years of experience working as an Individual and Family Therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, and trauma issues which includes physical trauma and emotional trauma. I have a vast experience with working with teens using Cognitive-Behavioral and trauma focused therapy.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity and compassion. I do not believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, and trauma focused 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 holds a personal,safe and non judgemental space that invites awareness, acceptance and healing. Susan is so supportive and really lets me know that this is a team effort. She is incredibly atuned to
how I am feeling and knows when to take things slow ,when it's time to give me an assist so that I may
move forward and when to just tell it like it is. I look forward to
speaking with her and appreciate hearing her perspective on things. She's the real deal.

Susan is definitely a very understanding and warm hearted person! Even though my journey just started with her, by communicating with her, I feel like I am growing as a person, and most of all I am being supported and understood.
I definitely recommend her!

Susan is very responsive and very astute at picking things up. I can be very open with her about my daughter and she is very direct in her communication with both of us, yet completely approachable.

I was lucky to be matched with Susan, she’s exactly what I needed. Gentle but with perfect understanding and gives healthy, straight forward advice. 10/10

After speaking with her over the phone I felt a 100 times better and finally had some clarity and direction.

My husband and I are grateful to have stumbled across Susan the first time using this app. We were having communication issues 8 years into our relationship and Susan is really helping us navigate that and implement helpful tactics. We feel that she has a great understanding of where we are both coming from and is very neutral. But also honest. A very hard find. Thank you Susan for helping our marriage and all that you do!
