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.
I'm a partner to YOU! You have the answers inside you, and I'm here to help you uncover those answers with a gentle and direct approach to moving you forward as you are ready. Whether you need a listening ear, or practical strategies, I would love to help.
