“I started seeing susan about three years ago, while my current therapist was away on vacation. I was very reluctant towards therapy at the time, and was going through some of the biggest changes and struggles of my young adult life. seeing susan for therapy has changed my life in more ways then I can count. she has guided me spiritually, emotionally, and mentally and has served as a real mentor for me. although our relationship is strictly professional, I could not picture my life without her.
