Suze Gadol Anderson, LCSW
Owner & Primary Therapist
I have worked in this field since 1987. I have helped people who want to defeat depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and/or chemical dependency through skills training and counseling. I love working on building self esteem and improving communication. I have mentored and supervised other therapists to be able to practice independently. I have given lectures about coping skills and theories to the general public as well as other professionals. I began with a BS in Communication from the University of Texas at Austin, then attended the University of Texas at Arlington, earning a Masters of Science in Social Work.
To be the most effective that I can be, I continue to be educated on an ongoing basis in theories and techniques to provide high quality counseling, support and psychotherapy online via encrypted video services.
My style of therapy has a foundation in psychodynamic principles, which helps people understand how current reactions are linked to interactions from the past. I utilize a variety of techniques from many theories, including Humanistic, Cognitive, Gestalt, Object Relations, Bioenergetic therapy, and Biofeedback, to name a few. We work together in our session to gain insight and identify changes to be implemented in between sessions.
Online counseling is a newer way to access therapy, particularly useful for folks who have tight schedules, travel a lot for work, or don’t have access to many counselors in their town. I’m skilled at individual, couple and family therapy, though I think the best type of online therapy is individual work.
I believe we all have thoughts, feelings, behavior and physical reactions that are information for us, and we need to understand what it is telling us. It is our responsibility to use this insight to be better to ourselves and the people we love. We are not victims of our past; we have the ability to change, no matter how young or old we are!
I welcome the opportunity to work with you and help you achieve the goals you set for yourself. Feel free to contact me by visiting the Contact Me page.
