PLEASE NOTE: I only have availability for am appointments. Ty. Are you feeling stuck? Does traditional "talk therapy" not meet your needs? Are you seeking a more faster groundbreaking path to healing? Whether you are struggling with a certain short-term issue you are encountering in your life or you need deep transformative work to release long existing pain, I can help. If you are really wanting to work on issues and have time for journaling/homework, committed to weekly sessions, and open to constructive feedback, we would work well together. PLEASE NOTE: I do not work with personality disorders, abusive individuals (I only work with victims and you must be detached from your partner), and I do not do couple's counseling on this platform. I'm Susan Lane, a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Florida with over 27 years of experience. I specialize in helping individuals, couples, and families overcome obstacles, trauma, mend broken hearts, and improve relationships. I also help clients who seem to be attracted or surrounded in toxic relationships, especially Narcissistic Abuse, whether it is from a parent, friend, or partner. My Approach: I offer a unique modality called Integrative Trauma Therapy, which blends traditional therapeutic techniques with holistic and spiritual practices. This approach addresses your needs on physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels, facilitating profound and comprehensive healing.

Hello! My name is Kelly Brock and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Pennsylvania and also in Iowa. Maybe you are just feeling stuck, and don't know why? Or maybe you know why, but don't quite understand what tools to use or how to use them to get yourself to that next level up in self-understanding and comfort? I believe finding one's peace in life is a journey of exploration… Sometimes our human side tends to make the exploration in life's journey a tad bit complicated. When we know more about ourselves (and others)... we are just able to navigate life better!
