Susan Spehling, LCSW

Telehealth Available

LICENSED IN: California

Hello, my name is Susan Spehling. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Cognitive-Behavioral Therapist through the National Association of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapists. I have been a licensed therapist since 2007 and have enjoyed working in a variety of unique settings, including the California Department of Corrections (CDCR) since 2005 as a clinical psychotherapist. My passion is learning about your passion, your realized and unrealized hopes and dreams, discovering your personal goals, and walking your journey beside you throughout your therapeutic experience. I specialize in individual, couples, family/parenting and group counseling for adults, teens and children. I started my education in nursing and then changed my focus to mental health after discovering a dearth of providers in this deserved but underserved population. I have worked in private practice and since 2012, enjoying a fairly equal amount of time in all age demographics, to help remedy this. I have also provided direct services, support and consulting to hospitals, state and federal organizations, such as firefighters, military and law enforcement. I have also provided supervision to upcoming therapists since 2012. My specialty areas include all depressive, anxiety and mood disorders. I also specialize and am certified in Complex Trauma and Attention-Deficit disorders (ADHD). I am a certified hypnotherapist, and I offer deep relaxation techniques. Finally, I have extensive experience in crisis intervention, in-patient and out-patient, and behavioral modification. I have extensive EAP experience and enjoy working with EAP members. I offer a compassionate, open and curious approach to our ever-growing and exciting cultural diversity! My goal in therapy is to create a personal, goal-oriented, kind and safe place for my clients to begin their journey on their pathway to excellent mental health, with a balanced approach. I practice transparency and welcome open communication with my clients. My treatment model is primarily psycho-educational, and includes Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Rational Living Therapy, Strength-based, solution-focused therapy and Mindfulness. I look forward to providing my clients with professional, respectful and personalized mental health support!
