Susan Baker, MEd, LPC, NCC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Sugar Land
Is constant worry or lack of sleep making you feel helpless? Feeling overwhelmed or exhausted and finding it difficult to focus? Are you dealing with a difficult person, or stressed out by family life? My clients come to me for many different reasons, but the most common ones are: overcoming symptoms of stress and anxiety, improving marital and family relationships, communication skills, parenting challenges, implementing boundaries with extended family, managing blended marriages and families, and building self-confidence.
I use an integrated counseling approach that combines Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) with Person Centered Counseling. Our relationship is based on unconditional positive regard, empathy and congruence. At Motivations Counseling, we provide a safe, confidential place to explore how you can achieve a more meaningful life.
We provide psychotherapy and EMDR therapy for individuals, couples & families in Sugar Land, Missouri City, Katy, Houston and surrounding areas. On a personal note, I've been married for over twenty-eight years and am a mother of two: an adult and a teenager. I'm a long-time Houstonian (over forty years).
