Suzette practices from a whole-hearted, empathic perspective. She creates an emotionally safe space for clients to process their grief, pain, shame, and other forms of suffering. She seeks to build an authentic connection with her clients in order to compassionately and non-judgmentally explore the self together. This type of therapeutic relationship enables clients to re-connect with their passions, authenticity, and joy. She works with clients coping with anxiety, depression, relationship conflicts, family conflict, abuse and trauma, eating disorders, difficulties with attachment, adjustment to altered life circumstances, and other struggles.
Suzette approaches her therapeutic practice from a humanist, Rogerian perspective, which esteems the client as the expert on his or her life. She believes that a client-centered, client-driven approach most efficiently connects the client to their truest, most resilient self. In order to assist the client on their journey to wholehearted living and emotional well-being, Suzette customizes her approach with each client. In doing so, she draws from Adlerian therapy, motivational interviewing, psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, play therapy, interpersonal neuroscience, and mindfulness.
