About Susan E. Auman, LCSW
I believe that we humans heal in the context of relationship and that therapy is the process in which we find our way to our whole selves. In the therapy room, I join with clients to co-create their unique path to wholeness by realizing their inherent strengths and utilizing them to developing a 'tool belt' of strategies for which to work through life's struggles. Together we orient to the client's inherent capacity to gain mastery of their own functioning from the lens of their truth.
I am a relational body-centered, somatic psychotherapist specializing in the resolution of overwhelming life events and trauma. I work from the perspective that the mind and body function most effectively when guided to do so in tandem.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 15+ years of experience working with people of all ages and all walks of life. I speak Italian fluently and have an intermediate grasp of Spanish.
“Everything can be taken from a man but... the last of the human freedoms - to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances.”
About My Methods
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I pride myself in supporting clients from the Systems Perspective. This approach views human behavior as the result of multiple complementary systems coming together into an ordered whole; each system influences the other systems as well as the entire being. Through the lens of the Systems Perspective, I work with struggles in the human experience by addressing the interrelated parts of the various categories that make up my clients.
At Wholeness Embodied, our therapy sessions are based on joining a client where they are and employing strategies that orient clients to finding and creating wholeness.
