“I was an active duty military member going through an ugly divorce when someone referred me to Susan. My ex had previously filed for separation 3 hours before my deployment and was trying to take my kids away from me. She accused me of abuse and many other things. (In short, she’s just a nut).

Susan was amazing the entire time, kept me calm, even did not charge me for a few times I called her and needed her to play therapists and she even noticed me tearing up during the trial decision and passed me a box of tissues. I wish there was a rating above 5 stars.
