Professional Bio

Hi! My name is Susan. I’m a licensed clinical psychologist and I earned my Psy.D. from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology in 2008. My graduate training focused on the treatment of trauma, and to this day, I remain passionate about helping others work through the emotional and interpersonal effects of psychological trauma.

While in college, I worked as a family caregiver and hospice volunteer. This work is what inspired me to become a psychologist. I saw people at times in their life that were confusing, painful, and extremely scary. When you’re in that situation, it’s easy to feel scared and helpless, but it was so rewarding to be that person that could help them, and accompany them on a journey towards healing and wholeness. So, I decided to continue my career as a psychologist, where every day I work with clients to navigate life’s challenges, and find resolution and peace.

Over the course of my 14 year career in psychology, I’ve had the privilege of working with all types of people. I’ve worked with young children, families, and seasoned adults, all with unique stories to tell and goals to achieve. As your therapist, I’ll strive to create a genuinely warm and collaborative space to begin building a therapeutic relationship based on feelings of safety, and a sense of trust. I promise to be invested with you in your journey toward healing and self discovery, and help guide you towards healing.

“The real warriors in this world are the ones that see the details of another’s soul. This is both a gift and a responsibility” -Shannon Alder.
