A Little Bit About Susan...

I grew up in the Midcoast area of Maine.  I loved growing up in a small coastal village where the mountains and the sea meet.  The scenery and summers were majestic but the winters were cold.  I was fortunate to grow up in a time and place where we could play outside safely all day long and I could visit my nearby relatives and friends easily by riding my bike or walking.   Now, I love living on the South Shore of Massachusetts with my husband and raising a 10 year old daughter, and an 8 year old son.  We treat our animals including: a Great Pyrenees dog, a black cat, a fluffy bunny, and 5 chickens; like members of our family.  

 

WHY DID YOU BECOME A THERAPIST?

To be a helper.  Since I was a small child, I knew I wanted to be part of a helping profession whether it be a doctor, nurse, or therapist.  As I grew older, I became more and more interested in how our physical and mental health are interconnected.  I have always had a passion for “fighting for the underdog.”  Hence, I pursued graduate degrees in social work and public health.  I have had various professional experiences within this field and have found my work as a therapist to be the most rewarding.
