EFT Supervision

Meet Susan

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me and my practice. Over the years, I helped clients with anxiety, stress, depression, burnout, limiting self concepts, marital strife, and more. To meet these and other needs, I have built my practice around the science of attachment, discernment principles, and emotionally focused therapy. These approaches are evidence-based and quickly becoming the gold-standard for psychotherapists around the world.

In each of my sessions, I focus 100% on my clients. This is because, according to Socrates, “To know thyself is the beginning of wisdom” and knowing oneself takes time! Indeed, I encourage my clients to discuss their histories and talk about how their past might influence their relationship with themselves and others. From individual therapy services to couples therapy and workshops, my practice aims to provide meaningful and immediately helpful results.

In addition to my psychotherapy work, I am available for speaking engagements and can present on a range of topics. I also am a mom, grandmother, and dog lover. To learn more about my educational background, certifications, professional affiliations, and publications, click here.


Individual Therapy

Getting help is never easy, but together we can make it manageable.


Help for Couples

From weekend workshops to short- and long-term couples counseling, I’m here to help you deepen your bond with your partner.


Support for Therapists

If you are beginning your road to certification in EFT, then I’m here to help. Therapists who have completed their Externship and Core Skills training may begin supervision to deepen their understanding of the EFT model. As a founding member of the Los Angeles Center for EFT, I am deeply committed to supporting the next generation of EFT Therapists.
