Susan A Marchlen, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in New York
I help people to identify and overcome the issues that are preventing them from achieving what they want in life. My clients are highly functioning men and women who are dealing with the stressors of modern day existence, ie relationship issues, life transitions, depression and anxiety. It can often be a difficult task to balance interpersonal relationships (family, friends, dating, committed relationships) with life's expectations. Common stressors can also cause life crisis. For example, figuring out your career path, changing careers, adjusting to a new living or financial situation, dealing with chronic illness or the loss of a loved one.
My style is interactive and ecclectic and I try to provide a safe and supportive environment at all times. Under these circumstances, feelings can be explored, dysfunctional habits eliminated and new tools can be learned which will lead to living a full, rich and happy life.
It is most important to me that my clients learn that they can develop the skills to find their own truth and have the courage to live it without fear of what others say or do. This is true freedom. And freedom leads to the ulimate goal of happiness.

Susan A Marchlen's Groups

Adult Children of Dysfunctional Families

This group is made up of high functioning individuals who are committed to personal growth. The group experience helps members to develop the tools that will lead to a healthier and happier life. Various topics are discussed and include relationship issues, anxiety and fear, depression, alcohol and eating issues, OCD and grief work. Because of the dynamic created by the group experience, growth happens at a much more rapid pace than is experienced when someone is exclusively doing individual therapy. The combination of both mediums is amazingly powerful.
