WHAT MY CLIENTS ARE SAYING:
“After having met with Susie about my daughter’s search for her gender identity, I felt relieved and empowered. I knew that everything was going to be okay. Susie not only shared relevant, personal stories that gave me better perspective, but she also gave me the tools I needed to be an advocate for my daughter. She helped me know what I could do and say that would be helpful and would facilitate positive communication between my daughter and myself. Susie’s warmth and insight were exactly what I needed.” - H.S.
