Psychotherapy Services

Suzan E Wolpow is a licensed psychotherapist with over 20 years of professional experience. She works with individuals, couples and groups, as well as teaching, and providing consultation and training in a variety of settings.

Her specialties include helping individuals to enhance both their confidence and abilities in using personally effective communication skills ("clear voice" communication) both at work and in one's personal life.  This generally includes an increase in one’s sense of clarity about what matters to you and some practical negotiation approaches aimed at getting beyond relationship hurdles of any kind. 

Another specialty area includes working with women around issues that arise related to motherhood.  This includes supporting new, and not so new moms in addressing challenges related to parenting, issues left from one’s own upbringing, sorting out role issues with one's partner and clarifying life balance decisions. Issues for older new moms are another specific focus, as are postpartum adjustment issues, and pregnancy loss.  She also works with couples and with men around similar concerns.

Common Goals addressed by people working with Suzan:

  • Thinking of effective ways to get oneself heard, especially in challenging situations, while also improving relationships.

  • Considering ways to get unstuck by finding useful and realistic alternatives to negative thoughts.

  • Recognizing ineffective patterns with important people in your life that can be realigned, without feeling undercut.

  • Finding ways to feel more grounded, rather than distracted and distressed by concern about, or the influence of the judgments of others.
