Are you tired of carrying the weight of life all on your own? Therapy can be a space for you to receive support in carrying and releasing some of that weight from your shoulders. It's my goal to ease the fear and discomfort of sharing with someone new by building a genuine relationship with you that centers your voice, experiences, and values. I am committed to cultivating a space that is affirming toward folks of all races, ethnicities, gender identities, sexual identities, body sizes, and cultural backgrounds through welcoming discussion of similarities and differences between our identities and experiences throughout therapy.

Therapist Susan D. Griffith, PhD, Clinical Psychologist: I am "seeing" all my clients on the telephone at this time, due to Covid concerns. Visit my website EasyToTalkTo.com for more information about me as a therapist. I can file for and accept payments from most medical insurance companies. I find great pleasure in successful long-term therapy relationships. My clients are usually people who can appreciate and learn well from a working relationship with a good therapist. I am lately focused on the needs of standard (not UHC) Medicare recipients, and so may at this time (as I have openings for new clients) welcome them first.

I meet with adults for both individual therapy and marital/couple therapy. I see therapy as a way to become more aware of yourself and your interactions with the world; to update anachronistic self-concepts and to develop perspective on the trajectory of your life. When feeling accepted, we can shine a light on some of the darker corners of our lives, express novel thoughts and feelings, and become more fully and more comfortably human. For those familiar with the language, my approach can perhaps be characterized as psychodynamically informed humanistic therapy. Please go to www.daviddonlon.com for more information.

What I think helps and what I try to do, is create a safe, quiet, comfortable, and caring environment where the client and I can be as "honest" as possible...in terms of being real and authentic, without judgement or false pride. Pride is good; false pride is a defense, hinders self disclosure, and works against the therapy process. Together, in conversation, the client and I, with focused attention, strive to "understand" the problem(s), and co-create possible resolutions, insights, and behavioral interventions.

Seeking therapy is difficult. We may have overloaded friends in discussing our troubles. We need an objective person to listen, understand. Sometimes old and new issues get entangled. A person may have experienced poor treatment in the past and have trust issues. Problems can improve when a person works with a supportive, caring therapist who feels safe and is not judgemental. A therapist can become a source of caring support. Identifying factors blocking the way forward is necessary to prioritize the interventions needed; that step is also a relief. Change comes about through small steps and working on issues one at a time.

Or, you have recurrent distressing thoughts that plague and distract you from the tasks and rewards of life. You are sad, scared or worried about your past and future. Releasing your potential requires a set of technologies to liberate you from all these human dilemmas. Luckily, these tools exist--now more than ever before.
