Susan Purnell
Self Pay Rate: $119

Susan Purnell, PhD, LPC, NCC

Philosophy of Care

Susan Purnell, PhD, is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) who has 5 years of experience in the mental health field. Susan completed her Master of Arts (MA) in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Webster University and her Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Counselor Education and Supervision at Walden University.

Susan utilizes an integrative approach to counseling, utilizing three main theories: feminist, solution-focused, and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). She employs this mix to address her client’s immediate need to function effectively in their day-to-day lives, while giving them the ability to see how and why they may be stalled in their current situation. Susan often works with survivors of trauma, and in those instances, she uses trauma-informed or trauma-focused CBT. As clients progress, she likes to incorporate attachment theory into therapy to explore early relationships and their impact on later life. This often gives clients insight into the how and why of decisions made and often alleviates the anxiety of self-blame.

Susan seeks to foster rapport with her clients by providing a safe space in which they can disclose their challenges and develop strategies to manage difficulties in their lives and relationships.
