Susan M. Kleinman
Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW
My specialties are movement (tic) disorders, trauma, domestic violence, and maternity and parenting issues, having had extensive medical experience working in a hospital emergency room. In my 15 years of experience, I have worked with many populations: L.A. County Child Services, adoptions, foster care, probation youth, hospital,and community mental health. Recently I had worked at a busy urban hospital in all departments, covering patients in ICU, trauma, maternity, elder care, emergency care, and palliative care. I have learned to be flexible, patient, honest, and open. In my hobby as a painter and exhibitor, I have learned to appreciate views from many differing perspectives.
My specialties are diverse. I treat clients with movement disorders (tics). Additionally, I specialize in pregnancy and parenting issues, and trauma. I have also written, presented, and published papers on domestic violence and anger management. I can do brief solution-focused therapy. I am a problem-solver. I know I can help you.
I offer experience, confidence, and flexibility. I will work Saturdays and work with you on a sliding scale. I strive to meet your needs.
