Announcement icon I am providing secure tele-health video sessions as well as face to face visits with vaccinated clients.
Suzanne R Perkins is not currently accepting new clients.
My clients are looking for effective evidenced based cognitive behavioral therapy to resolve or manage their symptoms related to trauma, anxiety, depression, insomnia, binge eating and bulimia. They want to work with a therapist who is well trained and has years of experience in working with diverse groups of people. They want to feel validated and work collaboratively with their therapist. They are ready to tackle the emotional barriers to build a life worth living. My clients are racially and ethnically diverse, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, first responders, veterans, and civilians.
I have over 23 years of experience working with the Veterans Administration. I am proficient in evidenced based CBT protocols including Cognitive Processing Therapy, Prolonged Exposure, CBT for Insomnia, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, DBT for Binge Eating and Bulimia, Exposure Response Prevention (OCD) and EMDR.
It takes courage to reach out for help and overcome the stigma or invalidation from others to finally prioritize your needs and engage in therapy. Therapy is often a last resort as people struggle to imagine where to start or how they will ever trust a stranger with such personal thoughts and feelings. I look forward to meeting you and building that trust.
