Anxiety and depression problems can significantly impact your life and prevent you from reaching your true potential. As an experienced psychotherapist, I help my adult and adolescent clients overcome these problems and take back their lives. I understand the fear, lack of motivation, mistrust, hyper-vigilance, hopelessness, sadness, and other suffering these problems create. We will work together, using evidence-based practices like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) to reduce or eliminate these symptoms.

I utilize an eclectic, psychoanalytic, and relational approach while employing a strong racial justice, feminist, and queer theory lens. I practice from a fat-lib, sex-positive, and intersectional feminist perspective. I believe that one's past informs how they interact with and experience the world. Healing takes place as one fosters empathy and consideration for their past and present selves. The therapeutic relationship allows for gaining deeper perspective and understanding of oneself. I strive to build genuine and earnest rapport with my clients by being deeply nonjudgmental and always practicing with respect.

I am a queer non-binary Puerto Rican person and clinical social worker based in Philadelphia, PA. I am focused on the therapeutic relationship as a vehicle to increasing self-awareness and to healing through connection. As a trauma-informed clinician, I prioritize, safety, choice and collaboration in our work together. I approach therapy through an anti-oppressive and decolonial lens. I consider how a person’s larger context -their history, their community, their family, socio-political systems and culture- interact with a client’s multiple, intersecting identities.

Choosing a therapist is a difficult decision. Instead of telling you how I work, I decided to ask some of my patients to describe it in their words. "Susan is so down to earth that I feel like I'm talking to a good friend." "She really cares about her patients." "She makes it easy to talk about things that are very difficult to say out loud." "She is non-judgemental, kind, intelligent and professional." "After working with Susan my life is now moving in a positive direction." "Most importantly she has helped me to parlay the skills we've worked on into my life."

If you are reading this, I imagine that you have been sitting alone with some hard feelings for a while. I imagine that it has been lonely and painful. Maybe no one showed you what to do when you were in pain early on, or you were taught to pretend that you weren’t. Maybe when you did express yourself, you were punished or ignored. Maybe now, as an adult, you feel disconnected from other people and your own emotions and body. You want to connect and build relationships, but you don't know where to start. Getting closer to other people feels hard, scary.

Being human is a beautiful and challenging experience. We have the capacity for creating resiliency, self-compassion, and hope in our lives, but that process is not always easy. Sometimes we get stuck in unhelpful thought patterns that generate shame. Sometimes we struggle with regulating our emotions which can affect our interpersonal relationships. Other times, we face challenges with grounding ourselves in the present moment, which affects our ability to make wise decisions. At K & K Holistic Counseling, we work with you to implement the skills necessary to face and overcome these human challenges and build a meaningful life.

Life can be hard, it can be unpredictable, overwhelming, and at times we may feel completely alone with our struggles. Let me lend you a helping hand, so that you do not have to struggle alone. I can help empower you to take on the world and face the highs and lows that come with life.
