About

I am a Registered Drama Therapist and Somatic Centered Coach living on Ohlone land. I foster a warm therapeutic space with a creative approach to building a compassionate attunement to relationships and self expression. I offer expressive arts modalities integrated with verbal process, mindfulness, and an emphasis on somatic (embodied) skill building. Together we can dismantle harmful narratives and liberate the limiting beliefs keeping you "stuck". Specialized experience and personal passion for supporting emergent adults (18-30s) processing intersectionality, LGBTQQIP2SAA+ identities, & attachment trauma.
My work embraces radical self-compassion and I believe fiercely in the health of the imaginal realm. Our sessions may include drama therapy, coaching, and trauma-informed somatics in an experiential approach to facilitating change. My practice is about building connections through self-expression to help you live with authentic peace.
Suz is an NYU graduate, where they received their master’s degree in Drama Therapy. Suz has experience working in non-profit settings for adults with severe and persistent diagnoses, acute psychiatric hospital settings (adult and adolescent), as well as residential treatment for youth experiencing trauma, mood, & co-occurring substance and eating disorders.
