About Dr. Suzanne Blaising

 Clinical Social Work/Therapist, PhD, LCSW

I am a psychotherapist with over 18 years of experience working with adults, couples and families.  I will help you regain the courage to face your issues and provide the necessary therapeutic tools to make positive, lasting changes in your life.

My therapeutic approach is eclectic. I use a psychodynamic as well as a cognitive/behavioral approach that brings about changes in the present while going into the deeper issues of the past. This allows a person to change unhealthy behaviors as well as work on long standing emotional concerns.

Some of my most rewarding work has been helping individuals and couples work through the difficulties in their relationships.  A healthy relationship between a couple is essential in both marriage and divorce. I help my individual clients and couples develop stronger emotional, behavioral, and communication skills so that they can express needs, wants, anger and frustration more openly and confidently. Helping individuals and couples develop greater self awareness and resolve differences provides an opportunity for healing, closeness, and a sense of purpose or resolve.   I will engage you in a productive and dynamic therapeutic process specifically designed to help you move forward in whatever direction you decide to take.
