About Susanne

My name is Susanne Umiker Spurlock.  I have a Master of Social Work degree with 35 years experience in the field of mental health, counseling, and holistic wellness.  I have been in private practice for 22 years.

The most important component in counseling, I believe, is establishing a healthy, trusting, and compassionate working relationship with my clients.  I have years of experience and training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, couples counseling, Family Systems Therapy, trauma recovery, and holistic medicine.  I am also trained as a therapeutic yoga teacher, with a concentration in teaching gental yoga to individuals with health, mental health, and mobility challenges.

In 2019 I  have completed training in medical cannabis and trauma recovery through the NASW (National Association of Social Workers).  I am committed to helping my clients discover their inner strength to overcome the challenges they bring to counseling, incorporating trust, energy, empathy, and humor.
