Susan Gulka, MA, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist Intern in Lake Oswego
I help individuals, couples, and families struggling with life transitions to find the peace and structure that fits for them. This might include children, teens, women, parents and couples who need a compassionate partner to help them sort through the tangles of life. -- I help women find, rediscover, or hold on to WHO THEY ARE in the midst of all the roles they play; I help parents and families to find peace and sanity in the growing-up years. And I support teens who are struggling with overwhelming emotions to learn how to cope and thrive in this challenging time.
In my support of you, I focus primarily on underlying emotions and identity. These are at the heart of who we are! I can help bring calm and confidence those who are seeking peace, less stress, better relationships, and more joy through individual, couples, family, or play therapy.
More specific specialties include parent & child understanding, specific training, and skill development around ADHD, Giftedness, and Highly Sensitive personalities. Play therapy specialty for children under 8. Specialty in the Change process.
