I am Susan Sanders, a licensed psychotherapist, therapist, and counselor in St.
Petersburg, Pinellas County, Florida. I have been practicing counseling and
therapy for over twenty years. After moving to Florida in 2005, I am pleased to
now have a private practice in northeast St. Petersburg on Beach Drive, a few
blocks from the Vinoy Hotel. I have broad clinical experience which encompasses,
but is not limited to, depression, anxiety, self worth, relationship
difficulties, stress, grief and loss, childhood trauma, and life transitions.
I enjoy working with both men and women, many of whom were new to
therapy. I welcome people who are experiencing a variety of concerns, and who
want to create lasting, positive changes in their lives and relationships.
My personal style is interactive, empathic, and respectful of individual values
and choices. Through developing trust, listening in particular ways to
understand and examine clients' experiences, and working
collaboratively, clients and I have successfully worked together and brought
about positive change. This alliance and investigation has supported clients to
develop better ways to cope with immediate stressors, create more supportive and
positive relationships, improve self-esteem, resolve long-standing grief, and
work toward deeper, more lasting personal growth.
I believe the ultimate aim of the work of therapy is to
develop better understanding and insight into ourselves and
others, increase communication skills, create healthy and
caring relationships, and improve the overall quality of our lives. It
is also my belief and experience that these changes can occur at any
age, any time in one's life.
