Susan Burns, LCSW

Susan has 30-years experience providing strengths-based services across the lifespan; she is guided by the heartfelt belief that effective therapy has the potential to improve lives through mindful attention, enhanced skills, focused problem-solving and guided processing through those "stuck" places we all encounter at some point along the line. A respectful therapeutic alliance offers the engaged client a powerful opportunity to amplify one's core values in daily life, pay attention to the way in which trauma and loss may have shaped--but not defined--us, and to "show up" more fully for the things and relationships that matter most. We are living through a period marked by uncertainty and new challenges. Effective therapy can provide space for heightened clarity, authenticity and compassion towards ourselves, our relationships, our communities. Susan would be honored to walk with you on this part of the journey--to consider the influence of history, to embody one's inner wisdom more fully, to embrace the meaning and possibility of this one interesting life we've been offered.
