What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems. With the wisdom of the ages, I meet people right where they are.

What should we know about your experiences and background?

Susan Pirsch is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist experienced in working with tweens, teens, and adults as they navigate stressors, life changes, and learn the language of self-acceptance. She is passionate about helping people gain comfort in their skin and gain skills to release the thinking and actions that no longer serve them. Her clients report she is extremely helpful, engaging, and warm. Susan completed her Master of Counseling degree from the University of Phoenix, Maui Campus. She obtained licensure in 2011. She was a school counselor for nearly 20 years, a clinical director of adolescents' prevention and treatment programs, and now, works with bereaved individuals and groups. Often times our life circumstances are made worse by our thoughts and feelings about them. The cycle can be self-defeating without someone to hear what you are saying to yourself. Susan is skilled at hearing her client's self-talk and helping the client hear it as well. Once clients start hearing themselves, healing occurs!
