Sarah Susswein, MC, RCC

About Me

Sarah is neurodivergent and is passionate about supporting others in their well-being. She holds a Master’s degree in Counselling, is active in pursing professional development and training to keep up with current research and techniques. Sarah works with individuals age 13+. Sarah takes a positive psychology approach to counselling. Recognizing that everyone has strengths, part of the counselling process is figuring out what is already in the person’s toolbox. Together, Sarah can help figure out what tool to use when, if more tools are needed, or if outdated tools need to be replaced. And sometimes, survival modes, outdated instincts, and old neural pathways can use a systems update, that’s where therapies such as EMDR come in handy. Prior to becoming a counsellor, Sarah was trained in the Orton-Gillingham approach and NILD Educational Therapy for the remediation of learning disabilities. In working with children and families with learning disabilities, and being a neurodivergent parent, Sarah’s experiences lead her to pursue a career in counselling.
