Susan O’Neil, MA, LMHC, NCC
Choosing the right counselor for your unique needs is an important decision. We all experience life’s highs and lows, suffer loss, struggle with our self-confidence, experience difficult relationships and battle through uncertainty. As a licensed counselor, my job is to help you find the answers that are unique to you. By identifying the negative thoughts and beliefs that have a hold on you, I can help you reframe these experiences to create a new foundation that reflects your true self, and is based in current reality.
Through my training and experience I have developed a special interest in helping people who are experiencing the complications of grief, loss, trauma, and previous emotional wounds – again, the important thing is understanding what lies behind those thoughts, and reframing them into a foundation of inner strength and a feeling of self worth. I believe the body, mind and spirit work together to form our foundation. Working together with a team of holistic professionals, I strive to help clients find and maintain the right balance in their life.
