About Susan


BRING A SMILE BACK TO YOUR FACE. Having been a licensed mental health therapist, life coach and substance abuse counselor for almost 20 years, I work with individuals, couples, families and blended/step families in a genuine, respectful and caring manner. I assist the client by empathetic listening in a non-judgemental atmosphere and teach skills and techniques that can be used for the rest of your life. Some of these skills are in relationship issues, communication, anger management, anxiety control, depression and relapse prevention just to mention a few. I love what I do and I do it well.

I am an advanced practice mental health nurse & a certified blended/step family & substance abuse counselor. Treatment is of the mind, body and soul. I continuously further my education to ensure reliable, updated information, statistics and techniques. By doing so I have a high rate of grateful and successful clients.

Being married for 38 years, coming from a blended family, having children, grandchildren and elderly parents, has presented different types of challenges. Life is a roller-coaster vs. a merry-go-round. There are easy and difficult times but the most important fact is how one goes through the journey.
