Susan Patten View Specialties



We all face challenges at some point in our lives... a difficult decision, a painful loss, or a traumatic experience.  Therapy can provide the additional insight and support you may need to face these challenges, begin the process of healing, and make some sense out of what is happening.  
 
My Approach: 
I believe that the process of therapy should be an empowering experience.  My approach is holistic, collaborative, and uniquely tailored to each individual, depending on your circumstances and needs.  A safe, compassionate space is assured at all times, allowing you to move through the process of change and growth at a pace that is right for you. 

My Background:
I have a master's degree in psychology, an applied diploma in holistic psychotherapy, and an avid interest in the practice of mindfulness and its therapeutic applications.  Fifteen years in the social services field, working with a large and diverse clientele, provided me with extensive interpersonal experience and a valuable professional foundation.  During that time, parenthood, life circumstances and a deepening interest in psychology and holistic counselling led to more in-depth exploration and training, and eventually the establishing of a private counselling practice in 2007. 
 
Common Areas of Focus:
Anxiety
Self-esteem
Grief and loss
Trauma
Life transitions 
Stress management
Sexuality and intimacy
