UPDATE ON CLINICAL SERVICESAs we attempt to navigate the issues around COVID-19 I am encouraging my clients to follow the government’s recommendations to avoid going in public if possible, and avoid gathering with others at this time. It is important to take a proactive approach to minimize the risk. If you are having any symptoms of illness at all, please stay home. I will continue to see patients in-office as much as possible, however, I am preparing to move from in-office therapy to secure video therapy if needed. If you are an existing patient, I will be contacting you directly via email with updates. I am available to discuss any concerns or answer any questions regarding the upcoming changes.
Sincerely, Dr. Dutcher
Thank you for visiting my site. I am Dr. Susan Dutcher and am licensed as a Clinical Psychologist and Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist. I began working in the mental health field in 2000 and have over 18 years of clinical experience. I enjoy working with those experiencing a desire for continued healing and growth in their personal, professional, and spiritual journeys. My focus involves helping clients envision positive change and develop goals for healing and growth.
In addition to psychotherapy, I also provide psychological evaluations (ages 7-65) for various issues including (but not limited to) the following ADHD, Anxiety, Cognitive Functioning (IQ), bipolar disorder, PTSD, depression, diagnostic clarification for emotional/behavior problems.
I'm here to help you dig out, and start feeling hopeful and happier.
My holistic approach is strengths-based and tailored to the client. It is important to me to create a sense of safety within the therapeutic relationship while blending research based interventions from family systems, cognitive behavioral, solution-focused, experiential, and psychodynamic models. Through the years, I have developed an appreciation of somatic experiencing and incorporate this perspective when seeing patients.
I utilize traditional talk therapy, experiential components of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, hypnosis, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I have completed advanced training and certification through EMDRIA as a certified EMDR therapist and an EMDRIA Approved Consultant. As an adjunct to the therapeutic process, I blend training from meditation and Reiki courses to assist in facilitating growth and healing.
