My name is Susanne Kaiser. I am a Nationally Board Certified Counselor (NCC), Nationally Board Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of North Carolina. I am also an Integrative Coach and Consultant.
I have over 21 years of experience in behavioral health treatment, Psychotherapy, and Integrative Coaching.
I began a search over
20+ years ago that allowed me to experience healing in ways that honor
the entire human being -not just the mind. My approach is one that
honors each client's strengths and path towards wholeness. I empower
clients towards their own self-healing. My work is integrative -
utilizing mindfulness and inviting the soul/spirit, mind & body to
drive the process of therapy. I specialize in non-pathologizing
therapies. I strive to create an atmosphere of safety first and
foremost. I feel that spirituality is an integral part of the healing
I see clients with the full range of behavioral health conditions. I specialize in mood disorders (depression, bipolar disorder), anxiety disorders including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, chronic pain, addictions relationships/attachment issues, codependency, abuse, spirituality, and women's issues. My greatest strength is working with you to support your own healing and growth. I believe that given the right guidance and direction that you can become the Master of your own life!
I integrate mindfulness meditation along with other integrative methods honoring the soul, mind, and body connection from traditions of Yoga,Qigong, and Energy Psychotherapy.
