Susan Hammonds-White, EdD, LPC/MHSP
Therapy for Individuals, Couples, & Families
Hello - I appreciate your interest in learning about me and my practice. You will find me to be an experienced therapist who is both warm and insightful. I have worked in a wide variety of settings, including community mental health centers, hospitals, drug and alcohol outpatient facilities, and schools. I work well with couples and families who want to change their patterns of behavior, with survivors of childhood trauma, with those who are bereaved, with issues of disordered eating, and with issues related to financial stress.
You are choosing to take a step that has the potential to be life-changing. If you are looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation, or if you are just ready to move in a new direction in your life, counseling can help you achieve these goals. While we can't change difficult situations from the past, we can work together to help you better understand and resolve the challenges you face.
A client once said to me, “I’m glad you are driving this bus” (of therapy). I gently responded, “You know, the way I see it is that we are journeying together, and you are the driver…I am with you, and supporting you, and helping you navigate, yet I see you as the driver of our journey.” I believe that each human being has the knowledge and power to find his or her own answers. Sometimes we all need help along the way in finding those answers, especially if we have faced challenges in childhood that have left us sometimes without models from which to learn.
Please call or email me for an individual, couples or family therapy consultation today.
