I'm Susan and I have been practicing in the mental health field for over 20 years in a variety of settings. I offer kindness, an open mind, and creative and practical approaches to tackling life's mysteries and stressors. My career journey has been amazing, interesting, confusing, challenging, empowering, conflicting and yes, spiritual too! I have worked with several populations, addressing a wide variety of concerns such as addiction, depression, anxiety, adjustment issues, marital stress, infertility stress, stress management, anger, trauma, and grief. I believe that it is in life's challenges that we can grow and become spiritually enlightened, both professionally and personally. When I am not engaging in therapy, I enjoy time at home with my husband and two children and two pets. I feel much gratitude to engage in the work I do and enjoy the family around me. It would be my honor to join you on your life journey! Susan

Life is like the ocean, full of journeys and sights, as well as ups and downs. Sometimes the ups of life are really high, and the downs can be overwhelmingly down. Sometimes, we get in survival mode with the sole focus of surviving the downs that come our way. Our worries keep us from trying to thrive, and impact not only our lives, but the lives of others around us. In that process we forget that we can thrive and make choices that impact the ride we are on.
I want to help you build the skills to thrive no matter what comes your way in life. I offer talk therapy as well as experiential therapy. I am also a certified Equine Specialist in Mental Health and Learning so I like to explore the impact we have on others through relationships with horses.
You do not have to continue to merely survive from day to day in life, but instead learn to thrive and ride the waves of life’s ups and down knowing that you are capable of doing so. One of the hardest, yet most rewarding things you can do for yourself is to ask for help. I would love to connect and help you start the journey towards thriving.
I received my Master of Social Work degree from Our Lady of the Lake University in 1993. I have worked full time in the field of psychology/social work since 1985. In that time I have worked in in-patient residential treatment, in-patient short term (30-60 day) treatment and various of out-patient programs with populations ranging from 4 years old ((I teach child forensic interviewing for the United States Air Force) to 85 years old. I have my clinical license in social work and am a board certified diplomate in clinical social work and clinical supervision. I have been an adjunct faculty for Park University since 1996 teaching undergraduate courses in social work, psychology and sociology.
My practice is client oriented in that I start where the client is and go where they identify as a good outcome for them. I’m grounded in existentialism in that a client’s freedom is a primary component in their success in therapy. I have an extensive background in cognitive and behavioral interventions and can augment those models to fit the specific client.
A first session will be comprised of the client identifying what they want from therapy, what has worked for them in the past, what impediments there might be to them achieving treatment goals and what strengths they have that could help them as well. The session would also cover a history of treatment to include what does and does not work for them in a therapy dynamic. The end of the first session would establish the roadmap forward to achieve their goals.
I am a bilingual counselor; I can effectively communicate in English and Spanish as we work together to meet your counseling goals. I have almost ten years of counseling experience working primarily with children ages 4-11, although I have worked with all age groups. I earned my counseling degree from Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas. I look forward to working with you!

I like to think of life as L.I.F.E.--Living Inspired with a Future of Encouragement ! It is possible in any situation to reach a place of serenity and peace after experiences of depression, anxiety/stress, trauma, grief, addiction, and/or other mental disorders/illnesses. When we have physical ailments, we take medications, consume proper nutrition, and exercise our body. Just as well, we need to take care of our mental health through proper therapy/counseling. I've helped clients through tough times when they had no hope for nor any thought of a positive outcome. I am here to guide you, and together we can work to get you to a healthier place mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I use an array of therapeutic modalities, depending on my client's situation, and desire(s) for outcome. I have helped clients with Major Depressive Disorder, Schizophrenia/Schizoeffective Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality, PTSD, addiction, and the list goes on. I am culturally diverse, as well as having worked with the LGBTQ population. I love doing what I do, because I help people just like myself. During one of my toughest times, I used one of the best tools I learned early on in therapy--journaling. The outcome? My published, fictionalized biography "The Prison Book...Alcoholism/Addiction: A Life Sentence". I would be honored to work with you in your journey of healing and finding peace and joy in your life. Thank you, and God bless!
