I believe that every person is inherently healthy, and in my practice I focus on helping people build their individual strengths. We also must understand how the environment we live in impacts individuals, and I work within the community to best support the people and families I work with.
By facilitating the co-creative process that is the therapeutic relationship, I work to develop successful communication and a therapeutic program tailored to your individual needs and desires.
Susan has training in a variety of conventional and complementary healing modalities, such as DBT, brainspotting, somatic experiencing, and others. Combining these modalities with traditional psychotherapy allows Susan to offer a holistic approach to mental health care for the individuals and families she serves.
Since 1990, Susan's professional experience has included working with individuals, groups, and families. Susan has since become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and has earned a variety of certifications in other treatment modalities. Susan also believes in continuing her education, and is constantly evolving and developing her skills through a variety of workshops and trainings.
In addition to her private practice, she has primarily worked in public and mental health settings. Susan is currently a member of the Boulder Psychological Services (BPS) group, which offers a wide range of mental health services throughout the community.
