Susan I. Buckles

I provide services to adults and older (18+) adolescents, using an eclectic, non-pathologizing approach. Treatment is planned in collaboration with the client, with ongoing attention to the client’s goals. I use a variety of modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, Enneagram, and Internal Family Systems. I incorporate mindfulness techniques into all modalities, based upon the client’s beliefs and resources. I believe that in addition to achieving specific behavioral goals, therapy is about achieving a fuller and more congruent life.
