Chat with me

Hi everyone! My name is Susan and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker living in Southern California with my husband of 25 years. I enjoy hiking in the Sequoia's, playing board games, and spending time with my two college kids (as well as my cat and two dogs). I began my career providing counseling to adults hospitalized with severe mental health issues including Depression, Bipolar Disorder, suicidal ideation, and substance abuse. I transitioned to working with children and adolescents and have never looked back. Their energy and passion have continued to inspire and energize me. I specialize in working with children and adolescents who are struggling with anxiety, depression, low self-confidence, and trauma.
