Susan Rice, MA, LAC

“A problem shared is a problem halved” may be one of the oldest sayings in the book. When we are facing difficulties with our mental health, however, we can easily feel isolated, overwhelmed, and reluctant to share our struggles. In therapy, I provide a safe and comfortable environment where you will not feel alone in your experience. We will collaborate on your recovery and find resources that will be of lasting value both to you and to those around you.
