Following graduation from the University of Detroit Mercy Clinical Psychology program, Sue was and continues to be licensed to practice by the State of Michigan. Through advanced training and experience providing therapy since 1993, she specialized in the effective treatment of stress, anxiety, panic disorder, psychological trauma, PTSD, depression, domestic violence, women’s issues, and Critical Incident Stress Management.
In addition to being an effective anxiety therapist, Sus has presented at national conferences and to general audiences speaking on topics such as Psychological Trauma, Substance Abuse, & Relapse; Skills Training for Trauma Survivors; Childhood Trauma; Workplace Violence; Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault; Critical Incident Stress Debriefing; Abuse, Neglect, and Exploitation of Vulnerable Adults; and the Legal Limitations of Adult Protective Services.
Sue is an interactive, cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, Christian Psychologist. Her approach is to provide a supportive environment, providing skills training to stabilize symptoms, discussion of current problems and challenges, and assist coaching clients in what to look for in a therapist, if needed. Sue developed particular strategies over the past twenty-plus years to reduce stress, anxiety, anxiety attacks, worry, psychological trauma, depression, and women’s issues that have proven to be effective.
Sue started reducing her in-office therapy practice, to take her vast experience and additional training into the Coaching arena. Over the past several years Sue found that most individuals seeking her services needed more coaching than anything else. Whether it was coaching individuals in assertiveness, healthy boundaries, anxiety or stress reduction, relationships, children, employment, and starting a new business it was extremely rewarding. Prior to beginning this transition, Sue began coaching other therapists on starting a practice and treatment of psychological trauma.
