It is not how we feel, but what we do with those feelings that define us as individuals.

Hello! My name is Suzanna Nagy. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate (LPC-A) and a National Certified Counselor (NCC). I earned dual master’s degrees in psychology and Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a focus on psychotherapy and counseling. I have always had a passion for helping others find solutions to the problems that plague their lives. I began my counseling career working in a community-based mental health setting before establishing myself in private practice.                             

EXPERTISE 

I work with individual (child, teen, adult clients) and couples who are facing anxiety, depression, life transitions, loss, trauma, ADHD, Bipolar disorder, and challenges at work or in relationships. I have counseled adults, couples, and groups in community-based and school-based mental health, as well as private practice. I have also conducted in-depth research on trauma, hopelessness, empathy, attachment, and intimacy. Above all, I believe that my clients, not I, hold the key to their growth and that emotional pain and anxiety, when given respect and non-judgmental attention, can often provide some of the best opportunities for learning.

In addition, I have experience working with individuals from alternative lifestyles, the LBGTQA+ and transgendered community, and various cultures.

COUNSELING APPROACHES

My approach combines holistic, person-centered, and psychoanalytic therapies such as Freudian approach. This means that not only do I listen to what clients say and I tailor their therapy to fit them but also help them address their past experiences and unfinished business in the here-and-now. I help them learn how they make meaning of the world, supporting them through an ongoing process of identifying goals and the pace at which change takes place. I feel that therapy should be a combination of hard work and fun. I believe therapy should be tailored to fit the individual client or a family. I offer my clients a safe environment free from judgment,andI am firmly committed to empowering my clients to succeed, by encouraging them to understand their behavior. Additionally, I assist them in modifying those behaviors they wish to change.

I provide outpatient services to individuals, families, and groups in an office setting as well as Telehealth/Online/Video therapy services, which are HIPPA compliant. Please check with your insurance if teletherapy is covered in the outpatient therapy benefits or you can choose to private pay.
