    Suzanne Friesner, LMSW

    Licensed Master Social Worker

    LOCATION: Kalamazoo

    I believe we are all damaged, to some extent, and that there should be no shame or denial of our brokenness. Still, we can repair the places we hurt and live better lives. We can live with a greater sense of purpose and connection to others while learning to find hope, and we can demonstrate achievement while developing a greater sense of acceptance of how things are rather than how we wish they were. We can face reality and survive. We can choose not to avoid or run from reality, as avoidance only prolongs our suffering.

    I have provided individual, group and family therapy for adolescents and adults for more than 25 years in outpatient, foster care and residential settings, as well as partial hospitalization and inpatient hospitalization programs. I tend to use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy principles, and expect that those who I work with are willing to do the necessary work to effect healthy change with the additional support, guidance and compassion that therapy can provide. I believe that change is possible if you have the desire and a therapist-advocate to assist you in devising a map from where you are to where you want to be.
