I was honored to be named a Mom Approved Therapist for DFW Magazine for 2020 and 2021. My priority is to create a safe and non judgmental environment where individuals may come to receive support and the tools needed to encourage positive change in their lives. I am a family practitioner who offers services to all ages. I support individuals with a variety of mental health issues including anxiety, depression, and somatic complaints. I also work with many who experience grief, adjustment, and stress. With 16 years experience as a counselor, I am comfortable providing a unique approach with each client to best fit their needs.
People with underlying issues of trauma like sexual or physical abuse and neglect often seek therapy due to some other crisis, all the while knowing, somehow, that past abuse is likely a contributor to their current problems. It can be very scary to even begin thinking about how much damage has been done to the heart, body, mind and soul by the abuse, and yet there comes a time when it is imperative to start the healing process. When you finally begin working on unresolved issues a whole new way of relating to others and handling situations opens up to you. You have the opportunity to reclaim parts of you that were long ago lost.
I believe in meeting clients where they are at emotionally and helping them and their parents reach their goals. Through a positive relationship with my client I try to help them gain insight into their desire to belong and have significance. I continually work to create a supportive environment for children in order for the child to gain insight and understanding into their unique world. With insight the child and therapist can collaborate to reduce the child's current stressors possibly leading to problematic behaviors.

The saying, "It is the relationship that heals," is of central focus with my work with clients. I aim to accompany them as they gain insight into their situation and who they are as an individual. This results in added options in managing and enhancing life. We know that problematic areas are multi-determined and multi-layered. Examining and understanding the inter relatedness of all the forces of life allows for overall growth and symptom reduction. This process is a powerful ingredient that spurs lasting change across life stages, relationships and the overall experience of life.

Recognized for her diagnostic acumen and efficient treatment plans, Susanne Fred tailors psychotherapy based on a thoughtful and proven process that fully assesses the individual's singular situation. Sufficient time is required to decipher symptoms, evaluate stressors and pharmacological interactions, and draw out latent experiences. In this process of discovery, you begin to understand the person and how they will react to various treatment methods. Ms. Fred understands that each person is unique and prefers to utilize the treatment method(s) best for the individual, referred to as the eclectic approach where all empirically supported treatment methods have a place.
"The purpose of psychotherapy is to set people free" (May, Rollo). You may feel bound by a broken heart, childhood, or a traumatic experience. Or maybe you are in a tough season and need support for a time. Well, your desire to change your circumstance is the first step to setting yourself free and creating the life you want. To take a holistic approach, we will also look at your significant relationships. Healthy relationships are at the core of overall wellness. I will help you to assess the quality of your current relationship(s) and move towards more meaningful connections.

Life can be challenging in a number of different ways. We set goals and encounter obstacles. We have dreams but fall short. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I work with individuals, couples, and families to help them understand their challenges and work toward achieving their goals. This includes working with high-school aged adolescents and adults. And because each situation is unique, I begin the counseling relationship by listening carefully. I want to hear your story and meet you where you are.
I have a burning desire to help individuals and families struggling with what often seems like impossible problems and a wavering faith. I know that people crave restoration through change and want to help them on this journey. I provide a safe environment to explore sensitive issues, founded on respect and caring for the client. My own personal journey of growth gives me a unique perspective that I use with each client.
Is anxiety, depression, chronic pain, or grief weighing on you? Do you struggle with low self-esteem, loneliness, and navigating friendships? Are the transitions in your personal life overwhelming?

You don’t have to carry these burdens alone—I want to walk alongside you in these challenges. Together, we’ll find healing and hope on your own terms.
Have you been told you’re too sensitive or too emotional? You don't understand why your emotions feel so intense, why things bother you so much, or why you overthink and overanalyze. You wonder why life often feels so overwhelming and overstimulating. You think that if you could just be more like everyone else, life would be easier and things would improve. You long for close relationships but even that feels difficult and complicated at times. You want to understand why you are so different and you don't want life to feel so hard.
