Welcome to Susan Lessley Counseling
Life Happens, Let's Deal With It...
You are beginning to think of helping yourself to grow beyond that stuck place. GOOD FOR YOU! You may be wondering if you have the strength or the courage to look at these issues, or if you even want to get help. It helps to have guidance, a witness, and an encourager to help you in your journey. I believe I can help you by offering these things as you explore and discover yourself.

I have been trained by Pia Mellody in Post Induction Therapy (PIT), which focuses on developmental immaturity (formerly called codependence) from childhood experiences.  Learn more about PIT.

I offer therapy groups, three day Intensive Family of Origin programs, individual, and limited couples therapy.

I have been trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing - EMDR - as a way of treating trauma, abuse and negative self-beliefs.  Learn more about EMDR.

I work together with clients who may have issues such as:

  • Family of origin issues 
  • Trauma / abuse / neglect 
  • Childhood sexual abuse
  • Incest 
  • Relationship issues
  • Codependence
  • Depression / anxiety 
  • Shame reduction 
  • Pet grief / attachment to pets  
  • Grief and loss 
  • 12-step recovery approach 
  • Self-esteem issues
  • Support for end of life decision for pets 
  • Boundaries

Complimentary 30-minute Consultation
I want to help people begin (or continue) the journey to live more fulfilling lives. I offer a complimentary 30-minute consultation to ensure that you are comfortable with my style and I am the best therapist for you. This is time to briefly discuss scheduling, fees, and how I can be of assistance.  *Note regarding 30 Consultation: If you schedule a consultation but do not show up, the next step, should you want to continue, is to schedule a paid 80-minute session. There is one opportunity for a free consultation.
