” A skilled, compassionate and effective therapist, Richard Sussman has guided me through difficult times in my life with strength, compassion and even humor. Possessed of an agile, insightful mind, he encourages me to explore, understand and open the door to change. ”

” I have been working with Richard for almost 10 years and it’s hard to find words to articulate just how highly I regard this man. He is an expert at showing sincere compassion while simultaneously holding me accountable for my “stuff”. I’ve worked with him through couples counseling, divorce, recovery from divorce, remarriage, blended family issues, everything else that comes up, and there has never been a time where I haven’t felt that I was in the best possible hands. That “junk in junk out” experience that many people have during therapy doesn’t fly with Richard. He’s as real as they get and pushes you to be too. Quite simply, he’s the BEST! ”

“As a Partner in a CPA firm, the Partner Group has to handle extremely stressful financial management issues and demands, not only from our external clients, but from our internal client, the firm, along with  a very demanding Managing Partner.  Over the past 7 plus years, Richard Sussman has guided me in navigating theses tumultuous waters by listening closely and helping me focus on understanding why I am so I can better understand who I am.  This knowledge has empowered me to reduce stress and anxiety, but more importantly has enabled me to become a much better husband, father and overall person.  I am grateful for Richards’s guidance and look forward to his guidance for many years to come.”
