Feel safe to speak your unspoken.
Providing a sense of belonging has been shown to reduce anxiety, depression, and stress. It improves your resilience to deal with everything that life throws your way.
Empathetic communication requires you to be sensitive to your emotional state. If you aren’t noticing what’s happening, you block yourself from truly understanding and being understood.
Thoughtful reflection of your own patterns, behaviors, and roots can lead you to create a better understanding of yourself. That’s an important step to feel more connected with others.
When we feel comfortable in relationships, we can be ourselves. We feel free to express our thoughts, feelings, and needs. We don’t have to put up walls.
A Note from Susan
Addressing an epidemic of disconnection
Welcome, I’m glad you’re here. My passion is helping others create more heartfelt, emotional bonds and a sense of true connectedness. I’m speaking, consulting and developing new tools, models, and resources to spark open-hearted conversations.
As a therapist working with individuals, couples, and families, I’ve seen relationships dramatically improve when we learn to speak from the heart.
Get past the walls and defensiveness that cause misunderstandings and disconnection.
When we can create safety in our relationships, allowing us to be ourselves, the sky’s the limit.
Provided the Tools I Needed to Solve it Myself
“You met me in arguably my lowest point. I felt lost, helpless, confused, afraid, overwhelmed, stressed, angry… an exponential amount of purely negative emotions and destructive words. I remember towards the beginning I would get extremely nervous to come to our sessions, and initially, I thought it was because I was uncomfortable talking about my emotions, but I realized that I was actually just afraid to confront deeper issues I’d been holding onto for years. You have this ability to connect dots in a way that I could not on my own. You dug deep and LISTENED to what I said, took key phrases that stood out, and shifted the perspective about how I thought of my own… thoughts. You took every hardship that I was facing and found a way to lessen the intensity and refocus my mind on the objective at hand. You taught me how to prioritize my thoughts. You taught me how to enjoy the present, not focus on the past or the future. I feel as though you helped me unlock who I really am and made me realize my potential more than I thought possible. I truly feel like a new person; a more calm, stable, HAPPIER version of myself. I remember how I felt before anxiety and depression really took hold and that original feeling is returning day after day. I’ve learned through you that its okay not to feel okay, its okay to let myself feel negative things, but I can’t let those things linger. Most importantly, you did not solve my problems. You provided the tools I needed to solve it myself. That’s more than I could ever ask for from someone. I’m extremely grateful for the time we’ve spent together and I encourage anyone who feels lost or confused to seek your guidance. I never thought I’d be where I am today. Thank you from every fiber of my being.”

Helped us Examine What was Really Going on
“Susan worked with my daughter and me to work through some difficult and deep-rooted behaviors that were negatively impacting our relationship. Some of our behaviors were simple, and others more complicated. Susan had a great way to help us get to the root of our issues. Susan helped us examine that what was really going on, wasn’t what it seemed to be on the surface.
My daughter and I now have a much better understanding of our own behaviors, we own our role in improving our relationship, and we accept where we are. Our relationship has improved leaps and bounds and I am so thankful for the work we did with Susan.”

An Incredible Support for our Family
“Susan has been an incredible support for our family as our daughter transitions from high school to college. She’s helped us weather several crisis and we have turned to her for guidance and comfort. Her counseling is a wonderful blend of empathy and practical advice that has helped our daughter tremendously through some very difficult times. We have also found several sessions of family counseling to be valuable. Susan is professional and ethical, but perhaps more importantly, she genuinely cares about her patients and that inherent kindness shines through in her therapy sessions.”

Had our Vibrant Loving Daughter Back
“Susan has been such a blessing for our entire family. Our daughter was having a very difficult time her sophomore year in college and began seeing Susan. She has not only helped our daughter navigate some challenging times, she helped us learn how to best support her in the most loving way. Our daughter made tremendous progress in a short amount of time and is using the tools Susan gave her every day. In just a few months we felt like we had our vibrant loving daughter back and our relationship with her is better than ever. We could not be more grateful for Susan and would highly recommend her to any family.”

A Balance of Expertise and Compassion
“It was an honor to work with Susan Caso on the documentary feature film MY SISTER LIV which premiered at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in the Czech Republic.

Her expertise was in perfect balance with her compassion, which helped to craft the story in a safe and meaningful way.
