Welcome to your wellness journey! I will partner with you, utilizing a client centered approach and creating an individualized treatment plan for you. I have success in treating anxiety, depression, and trauma, but treat most mild to moderate mental health conditions. I can help with life transitions, grief and loss, sleep disorders, panic attacks, depression, and increase your motivation for change when you feel stuck. I am trained in EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing), certified in Rational Living Therapy (a version of CBT), and am trained in many other skills to help you, as well as facilitating ego state, attachment, and inner child work. I will help you to create an individual treatment plan just for you and keep you on track toward your goals. One of my favorite things is to help you overcome fear of failure or feeling not good enough, and help you manifest the life of your dreams!

Hello, I am Susan VanAllen (she/hers), LCSW 87695. I have 8 years of experience working as a therapist. I worked for many years as a behavior therapist and have also worked assessing people for risk of suicide, and treating for trauma recovery. For several years I have worked in a community clinic helping people just like you to feel better. During the pandemic I found teletherapy to be just as effective for most people as meeting face-to-face and went into private practice. I am trained in EMDR, somatic experiencing, Internal Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and more. Currently I am accepting adults 18 and over utilizing 2 different teletherapy platforms. Let's connect and help you to achieve your goals!

I accept Optum, Aetna, United, and Cigna insurance
