Sue has a warm and compassionate style that creates a safe and calming atmosphere for you to explore what is troubling you, deal with difficult emotions, and work toward important goals. She works collaboratively with you to ensure that therapy is as helpful as possible. Her focus is to support and empower you to move through and beyond the challenges you're facing.
Sue works from a body-mind approach, always concerned with you as a whole person. As you share your story and experiences she may invite you to check in with your body to understand what sensations and emotions are underlying your experience. This is helpful in clearing stuck emotions and accessing the resources of the body.
She may also introduce and encourage the use of new skills that will help you in your daily life. These may include centering and grounding exercises, developing positive self-talk and coping thoughts, and improving communications skills. In your first sessions, we will discuss your concerns and get a better idea of what approach and skills will work best for your needs.
Sue draws on a variety of therapeutic approaches including Self-Regulation Therapy (SRT), Body Psychology/Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral, Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Solution Focused and Narrative to create a customized therapy for you and your needs.
