About Dr. Susan
My mission is to help people—young and old recognize that they can have greater control over their emotional health and physical well-being, and can improve the quality of their lives. I achieve this by teaching many ways to master a range of skills in order to successfully meet even their most challenging moments head-on.
My goal is to provide a perspective that allows people to balance life’s demands through healthy coping strategies so they can truly value and enjoy the positive aspects of their lives.
The goal of 4healthygirls is to help girls take control of their lives and health; to teach them that there are many different ways to be happy and healthy; to show girls that happiness shouldn’t mean risking one’s health; to help them learn that only you can make yourself healthier, inside and out—and that it happens slowly, one small change at a time.
