Imagine having the life you want where you thrive and feel like you are in control!
When dealing with anxiety, depression, flashbacks, sound sensitivity, difficulty sleeping or other symptoms due to trauma and stress, just getting through the day, every day, can be extremely challenging. It mostly feels like you are just barely existing, not really living. I am sure you have tried many things by now, yet you haven’t found the relief and the solution you need. Simply put, it is hard to function.
Wouldn’t it be amazing to live a life without intrusive anxiety, to find the motivation to do the things you want, manage stressors, have restful sleep and be free of flashbacks and all your other symptoms?
I believe in YOU and I can help!
Having spent years working with people just like you, my expertise with trauma in combination with a highly effective treatment approach can be the solution for you if you want to grow and thrive. We can work together so you can become a thriver and claim your life. Let me join you on this journey.
Solutions I Provide
The Rapid Reduction Technique® is a method designed to decrease the symptoms of PTSD, such as flashbacks and intrusive memories, associated with unresolved trauma, grief and loss. Several factors make RRT a quick and effective therapeutic intervention. One is that the emotional connection to the memory is markedly decreased. This allows the person to process the information/event without becoming overwhelmed.
Incorporation Therapy Technique assists an individual to reclaim lost parts of Self, thereby allowing changes in perceptions and reactions to past and current situations. This technique facilitates wholeness by defusing the intensity of pain associated with trauma and achieving forgiveness and acceptance of Self. Incorporation is a stabilization technique which stops the crisis and chaos cycles.
Hypnosis is a deeply relaxed state of focused attention that allows people to control and change mental and physiological patterns that can not easily be changed in everyday awareness. Hypnosis can provide rapid change because it utilizes the powerful connection between mind and body. During hypnosis, suggestions are made to create beneficial changes in ideas and behavior.
Every client is an individual and we will discuss which treatment modalities will be most effective for your particular issue and for you. I use a variety of modalities including but not limited to cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) which focuses on exploring relationships among your thoughts, feelings and behaviors and cognitive therapy which focuses on how you are thinking, behaving, and communicating today.
What Clients Are Saying
“I could no longer function at work or at home…The depression, the anxiety and the constant feeling of being out of control had become unmanageable. I felt like my life was slipping through my fingers and that I was losing everything I had worked hard for – my family, my career, my friends.
Thankfully, I was referred to Susanne by my therapist. I was nervous as I had no idea what was ahead of me, but my work with Susanne has given me my life back. I’m back in control of me and can enjoy life.”
I had been in therapy for many years before being referred to Susanne. From the first appointment I knew Susanne was my chance at living the life I wanted.
Susanne’s incredible talent lies in her ability to truly listen to you and to help you identify the source of the pain. Most importantly though, Susanne accompanies you on your journey, even if it means traveling the deepest darkest paths never wavering and ultimately guiding you on the path to self-healing, all in your time.
Susanne has helped me to experience a personal growth that for me was unimaginable. For over 30 years I had been locked in my traumatic past and thought I was reaching a point of no return.
