“I came to Susan when my life was filled with the stress of caring for an aging parent, a handicapped husband and a very ill brother whom I later lost. During that time she became my lifeline to sanity, my rock, my voice of reason. Always present, perceptive, and non-judgmental, she was my guiding light. She helped me make sense of this crazy world in which we live.”

“I have known Susan for many years. She has taken me through traditional as well as EMDR therapy. My childhood was very dysfunctional and I was in an emotionally abusive marriage. My life was in shambles when I met her. With Susan’s guidance, genuine concerns, and caring, I got rid of all the old baggage and have moved on with my life. I call EMDR going from 0 to 60 in two seconds flat. This type of therapy is fast and worked well for me. I got to my core problem immediately. With Susan’s help I made it through and now have a new life! Thank You Susan!”

“I have been in and out of therapy since I was in my twenties (almost 50). I truly tried to implement what I learned in my sessions and at times seemed to be doing well, but in the end I would lapse back into my old patterns that would lead to depression and total helplessness. When Susan suggested EMDR I was ready to try anything. I was amazed how going through this process finally got to the core of why I kept repeating these patterns. It has for the first time allowed me to be free to think for myself and let go of the traumatic events that kept me from living my life! An amazing technique, and I wish I learned about this earlier! I highly recommend this form of therapy!”
