Helping clients who have experienced trauma is an area of specialty for Susan. She is trained in EMDR, which is an evidence-based therapy for people who have trauma and relationship injuries.

She is certified in Prepare and Enrich; a system that helps premarital and married couples in their relationships.
 
As a former elementary school teacher, Susan enjoys working with children. In addition, she leads women and children in ministry settings, and has for the past 19 years. Her passion for helping her clients achieve positive change and a sense of wholeness in their lives is what drew her to this profession. Susan walks alongside her clients and helps unburden their past and move into a bright future.
