Kate Suskin, LICSW

"Get unstuck, rebuild your relationship, heal your past & create the life you have been longing for. If you are anxious, sad or stuck, I can help you reclaim the life you crave. Together we can work to discover who you are beyond your distress. Through skillful conversations and guided explorations, I help my clients disentangle, heal and navigate through their pain. I specialize in the treatment of individuals and couples seeking help with depression, anxiety, infidelity, stress and life transitions. I also work with clients who need assistance with eating disorders and other addictive processes, workplace difficulties, self-esteem, intimacy, trauma and grief and loss.

I can help you work through difficult transitions and emotions, get unstuck, and deal effectively with anger, anxiety, grief and unresolved traumas. I do this by combining my training in psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral and family systems. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process that can increase wellbeing, improve relationships and empower change.

I’ve been working in the Mental Health field for over 15 years. I received my Master of Social Work degree from Smith College and my undergraduate from the University of Colorado, Boulder. I have post-graduate training from the counseling center at Stanford University where I completed a Post-Masters Fellowship and most recently I completed a two year training program in Bowen Family systems. In addition to my private practice here at Richmond Family Medicine, I serve as a mental health coach in the Chittenden County Collaborative Law Practice Group."
