Susan R. Roeller
Susan enjoys working with adults of all backgrounds. She has experience working with anxiety and mood disorders, trauma (PTSD, Complex PTSD, relational trauma), grief and loss, as well as life transitions and adjustments. Susan believes all people have the innate capacity to grow and heal. Her goal is to help people cultivate and harness their own internal strengths and resources (while also teaching some new tricks along the way!).
Susan is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker who has been providing therapy services since 2005. She received an undergraduate degree in Social Work from the University of Wisconsin, Madison and started her career working in shelters for people leaving abusive relationships. She then worked in a non-profit agency providing reproductive health care and eventually returned to graduate school at the University of MN to obtain a master’s degree in Social Work. In graduate school, she found her passion for the field of mental health and eventually focused on becoming a psychotherapist with a goal to make mental health and healing accessible by helping provide a safe and comfortable space for people to do therapeutic work. After completing her MSW, Susan worked as a psychotherapist in community mental health. Susan continues her learning and has extensive training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) as well as advanced training in the area of trauma including Prolonged Exposure (PE), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (Level 1) and Adaptive Internal Relational Networks (AIR Network).
When not providing therapy, Susan enjoys spending time with family and friends, brunch, walks, learning to play guitar, laughter, humor, and sparkling water.
