"Hope" is a thing with feathers --

That perches in the soul --

And sings the tune without the words --

And never stops -- at all --

- Emily Dickinson

Welcome to Karen Sussan Psychotherapy

Are you searching for ways to improve your life, lead a more meaningful life, or become a better person?

People come to me for help because they might be stressed, anxious, or depressed. I help them with diverse problems such as relationships, life transitions, grief, and trauma, among other things.

There’s hope for you, too.

While your problems may be painful now, they can serve as catalysts for life improvement and enduring change. Out of duress, you can emerge empowered. You may tap into your greater potential and make positive changes.
The essential tools needed for effective work in psychotherapy are an open mind, hard work, and a good client-psychotherapist fit.

I pair my attachment, trauma, and psychodynamic approach to psychotherapy with a holistic outlook that affirms each human as unique and essential. I firmly believe that a solid client-psychotherapist relationship can ultimately lead to healing, growth, and transformation.

I admire the courage and resolve it takes to pursue and apply EMDR, attachment, and other forms of psychotherapy for change. I respect people who walk through my door. I find it exciting when a client frees up from attachment, trauma, and other difficulties, gains insight, discovers personal strength or improves based on our work together. Client reports of feeling better or more whole are worth celebrating!

Karen Sussan, LMHC

I have 25 years experience as a licensed psychotherapist helping individuals through psychotherapy. Presently, we can also work together in-person or via telebehavioral health services (online, remote psychotherapy).

Clients find me accessible and kind. I am passionate about upholding human dignity. Given my extensive background as a mental health counselor and social worker, I can customize psychotherapy to meet your needs and circumstances. A special feature I like to offer is the use of EMDR, parts work, and other attachment informed approaches.
