Susan Berlin & Associates, LICSW, CASAC, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Washington
I believe that the gems that you receive from the work on yourself come from understanding yourself more fully in order to have more choices in your life and improve your relationships. The more you know about yourself, the more you can choose what you want for your life. Before you have insight into yourself, life and circumstances choose you through old patterns, faulty belief systems, addiction and psychological wounds from your past.
Choice awareness and healing equal healthier living mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically. What I offer is in-depth, insight-oriented, compassion based, psychotherapy with individuals, couples and groups that will help to facilitate you having all that you want for yourself in your life.
Psychotherapy is an art to be practiced and refined, as is life. I am an artist in my life and in the work I lead as a psychotherapist, feel free to call me to talk about how we could work together. View my website for more information:
