Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Susan Shanks "Susan is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and Pastoral Counselor.  She received her master's in Divinity and masters in Pastoral Counseling from Loyola University.  Her practice and beliefs as a mental health counselor have been informed by her background as an ordained pastor and a mother of five grown children.  She completed her internship in a hospice setting as a bereavement counselor and her post graduate hours providing therapy for foster care children and families.

Susan believes no matter where a person is in life's journey, professional counseling can make a difference in life's journey.  For Susan, empathy and compassion for the client is the beginning of a healthy client-counselor therapeutic relationship.
