Individual Counseling Can Help You Feel Empowered and Alive


Feelings of inadequacy and unhappiness have become the cultural norm, but you don’t have to live that way. If feelings of perpetual anger or sadness, anxious thoughts, lack energy or defensiveness are impacting your ability to experience joy, meaning and productivity in your life, an experienced therapist can help you reframe your perceptions of yourself and your experience. With help, you can begin living a life of balance, intimacy and joy.


Through individual counseling sessions, you can begin to realize that there is not – nor has there ever been – anything wrong with you. There were only things that you were told and then believed that made you think that you were less than whole. Through various forms of spiritual therapy and more traditional psychodynamic approaches, I can help you see, accept and let go of your perceived deficiencies and complexes so that you can connect to the radiance of your essential nature.


In safe, nonjudgmental individual therapy sessions, an experienced and licensed psychotherapist like Richard Sussman will support you in opening to the difficult aspects of your life. Through a process of awareness and acceptance, Rich can help you transform anxiety into peacefulness, anger into resoluteness, fear into fearlessness and sadness into compassion.


You’ll also explore and dispel unproductive mindsets. You can begin to realize that all that happens is essentially out of your control, which can elicit relief and a sense of freedom. Once we break down your stories and fears, you can begin to learn healthy ways to express yourself. You can experience situations, rather than act out or withdraw. You can turn complaints into requests. You can reframe how you talk to yourself and others and quell self-created, unproductive misconceptions about who you are.
