Individual Counseling

Set Your Appointment with Dr. Susan: 813-215-5558

Dr. Susan draws from therapy models she believes will be most helpful to the particular client she is assisting.  Primarily, but not exclusively, she draws from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Systemic and Solution-Focused Therapy models.  In addition, she utilizes Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT) and Accelerated Resolution Therapy ( ART) protocols.  RRT and ART are innovative approaches that result in resolving traumas and other embedded problems at a much faster rate.  For more information please on RRT founded by John Connelly, visit  ART was founded by Laney Rosenweig, and for more information please visit 

When understanding the feelings and behavior of individual clients, Dr. Susan looks at the person in the context of their lives and relationships.  She explores clients  inner strengths and resources, integrating them into therapy, while helping people embrace the mind-body-spirit connection to facilitate change.  She helps clients identify core issues, develop coping skills, leading to identify and change negative thoughts and behaviors.  Before terminating counseling sessions, clients learn how to anchor changes they have made to promote lasting changes.
