“Great Therapist. I have collaborated with Susan Berger over a number of years and can heartily recommend her as a therapist for both individuals and couples. Susan is direct and real, warm and compassionate. One her her particular gifts as a therapist is her ability to both work deeply with people and to help in the kinds of practical ways that people often yearn for. She has a specialty working with couples who are in distress – including those dealing with extra-marital affairs – but works highly successfully with individual clients as well. I recommend her highly.” – Gwen W. Ph.D, March, 2012
“A Rewarding Experience. I’ve worked with Susan Berger for some time and she has helped me a great deal. Unlike other therapists I’ve worked with Susan is not formulaic but is very patient and lets me be myself. I talk about what troubles me when I am comfortable enough to do so. In my experience, Susan is very empathetic, caring and patient and I will continue to work with her and heartily recommend that others visit her as well.” – Sagen, April 2011
“Great therapist. I have known Susan Berger for over 15 years. We have been in various professional groups and consultations groups with each other over that time. I have also referred couples and individuals to her over the years. Through these associations I have developed a deep appreciation and respect for her and her work. Susan conducts therapy with great care, attention and precision. She has a way of getting to the heart of the matter without overlooking all the nuances, complexities and paradoxes of being human. She is smart, talented and is always expanding her understanding of both the theory and practice of psychotherapy. For her, therapy is a passion and a calling. I know I can refer to her without reservations, which is so valuable to me. I recommend her highly.” – Sherry Freeman, MFT, April, 2011
“Susan and I are colleagues. Susan is an excellent therapist. I have referred both individuals and couples to her. Every client that we have shared has told me how much Susan has helped them, especially in their relationship with their partners. Susan tackles with expertise some of the most difficult couple’s issues, that is affairs. Susan has a deep understanding of interactive therapeutic theory and how to apply it with compassion, understanding and empathy. Her clients feel safe and in trusting hands.” Dona T, MFT, April 2011
