Susan Cortilet-Jones, LMHC, Counselor in Durham
I am an experienced New York State Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Life Coach who has worked with various populations across the lifespan. I work with adults with Autism, Asperger and similar neurological differences. Primarily, I assist clients and/or their families on challenges related to gaps in "life skills" and impediments of daily living. I help individuals seeking skills for greater independence (social, communication and living). I incorporate my training as a therapist, experience in coaching adults and teaching by supporting the development of a healthy and independent adult life.
Becoming a better SELF ADVOCATE is a central theme in my work. Whether you are trying to find a job, get an apartment, develop friendships, or advocate for something unfairly directed to you, I will assist you in creating a well-rounded and happier sense of self.
A recent transplant to North Carolina, I will bring my years of expertise in helping clients as a 'Coach', counselor and life skills expert for those seeking greater life satisfaction and independence in adulthood.
