Susan is in private practice in Richmond, VA.specializing in the treatment of OCD, anxiety, eating disorders and trauma. Before she entered private practice 17 years ago, Susan worked on a Crisis Intervention team at a Community Services Board, and did Critical Incident Stress Debriefings to law enforcement, fire and rescue workers. She has also worked in community corrections and residential drug treatment. In addition to her faculty position at The Institute for Advanced Psychotherapy Training and Education, she presents at national conferences and gives university continuing education seminars. Her interest in treating people with anxiety and OCD was born of having been what she refers to as a “teenaged hand washer.” Through use of her clinical expertise, training, and personal experiences, she has successfully treated people with these disorders for close to 20 years. Susan is certified as a Level II EMDR practitioner and as an instructor of Life Force Yoga for Depression.
