More about me

Licensing: LPC
Years in Practice: 30
State: CA

Hello and Welcome! I am really looking forward to getting started with you. It can take a big step to make that initial contact for some guidance and help.

My name is Susan Van Wazer, and I go by "Sue." I've been a therapist for over 30 years and use a family systems theoretical approach when helping others through the issues and how those issues developed. I also use Cognitive behavioral therapy to guide people on making the changes that they want to see in their lives. Often it's the patterns that we aren't aware of that have an underlying pull to keep us where we are or keep us from making changes. I also help people who have survived traumatic childhood experiences that still haunt or effect one's life that can feel debilitating.

Throughout my tenure as a therapist I have worked in many capacities, including developing programs, supervising therapists, running the administrative aspects of programs, such as grants, events, etc. I have lived in several places within this country from large metropolis to small town communities. I work with LGBQ, youth and young people, families, couples, career issues, persons seeking major change, persons seeing recovery from psychological trauma, depression, anxiety, and more.

I'm looking forward to working with you! Talk to you soon!


About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Sue has been an immense help these past few weeks. I am gaining deeper insights into myself and finding ways to work through them. The questions she poses and the worksheets she has had me work on have helped me focus on what I really want to accomplish and what might be holding me back. It can be hard facing down a hard truth or an uncomfortable question - but she is also quick to help me recognize when I need to center myself again and offer me the space and tools to do that. I highly recommend her!
