Healing happens as we find ways to act on our own behalf and in alignment with our deepest values.
I facilitate honest & transformative conversations with brave people who long for growth.
Our best growth happens when we navigate our challenges with dignity and safety.
We often lose our feeling of power & safety in the midst of pain, loss, or suffering. Regaining our sense of strength & effectiveness is part of healing. Fresh perspective and extra support help us find our voice, the courage to care for ourselves and the strength to step into our future.
I listen with empathy and wisdom. Integrating psychology & theology is my specialty and my clients are often pastors, leaders, educators, counselors, and health care professionals.
I provide treatment for anxiety, depression, life transitions, relationships, grief, trauma, spiritual formation, addiction recovery, behavioral issues and personal growth. I’ve served individuals, couples and families, for 23 years in private practice as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. (License #: MFC 32401) My practice is in Roseville, California.

SUSAN IS VERY INSIGHTFUL. SHE IS ASTUTE AT SEEING CONNECTIONS UNDERNEATH WHAT THE PRESENTING ISSUE IS. SHE IS ALSO GREAT AT EXPLAINING THINGS IN A METAPHORIC WAY THAT HELPS THE CLIENT AND STUDENT UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY ARE GRAPPLING WITH.
Western Seminary Student Review
Take a few moments and relax now. Put the world on pause.
Watch the video below as you breathe deeply and slowly.
Relax your body.
Release your tension & worries as you exhale.
Inhale grace & peace.
Relax and enjoy the birds and the waves in Aptos
on a sunny day at low tide.
Relax and enjoy the babbling water
flowing down this creek full of snow melt
in the Sierras.
I ENJOY PROCESSING WITH SUSAN BECAUSE I KNOW SHE WILL APPLY HER KNOWLEDGE OF FAITH AND FAMILY. SHE HELPS ME BETTER UNDERSTAND MYSELF, MY PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS AND MY GOALS.
