Susan Langstraat, LCSW

 

                                                       

I find great joy in assisting others to find their own empowerment.  Likewise, we can work to discover ways to reconnect with your own internal strength, creativity, dreams and whatever has been lost in the terrain of your life.  Most importantly, I want to assist you in finding a way to reconnect with yourself or with parts of yourself that have been diminished.

 

I have trained extensively in working with trauma, attachment issues, grief, anxiety, depression, mood disorders and PTSD.  

 

I feel honored working with the LBGQT community including individual, couples’ work and transitioning issues.

 

I love working with individuals with ASD and their families.   

 

I’ve worked extensively with families and couples to improve communication and resolve repetitive conflicts.

 

I am trained in Attachment Focused EMDR and find that this is a very effective tool for resolving the painful emotions and physiological responses to overwhelming events.  These overactive or underactive emotional responses that can persist years after an overwhelming event or loss occurs.  I have also used this approach for binge-eating and behavioral patterns that create distress for individuals.  I have found this approach very effective with grief, anxiety, depression and other challenging issues in life.  Likewise, I have found this approach effective for traumatic medical procedures, chronic pain and other chronic stresses that occur in life.

 

I look forward to working with you to discover what works for you in your life.
