Susan received her Masters of Social Work from North Carolina State University with additional certification in addictions. She has worked in inpatient, outpatient, and community settings with children, teens, and adults.  Susan is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), a highly researched and effective modality for treating individuals who have experienced distressing life experiences.

Susan enjoys working with individuals, families, and couples who are struggling with issues related to PTSD/trauma, betrayal trauma/infidelity, relationship issues, separation/divorce, addiction/codependency, dual diagnosis, boundary work, parenting, bodywork, grief/loss, mindfulness, anxiety/depression, adoption and attachment, family issues, sexuality, spiritual concerns/abuse, and shame/guilt.  Susan believes that every person’s behaviors, choices, struggles and symptoms make sense within the context of their personal story and environment and became passionate about offering hope and healing to others through her own story of brokenness.

 

Susan seeks to create a safe space where her clients can honor their own stories and make the connections that lead to new skills, behaviors, and pathways resulting in a more balanced and fulfilling life. Susan enjoys spending time with her children, cooking, and going on long walks with her two shelties.
