Choosing Susan from a Clientís Perspective

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.     John Muir

In Susan I found a therapist who understood me and the issues I faced, who respected and had faith in me when I didnít trust myself.  I felt I could tell Susan anything, no matter how awful.  She helped me unravel my thoughts and feelings by sitting with me while I sorted out the tangled mess.  She alerted me to the effects of pulling on one thread so I could decide which threads to pull and which to leave 'til later.  She encouraged me when I despaired, thinking I wasnít any closer to untangling the knot.  Then, when I did untangle parts of the knot, Susan helped me to celebrate my achievement.

Therapy with Susan was the best investment in time and money I have ever made in myself both personally and professionally.
