Meet Susan Leigh Brunes, Pre-Licensed Professional, MBA, MA            


I (she/her) understand that mental health difficulties touch us all. I offer holistic support that fosters hope and greater self-awareness of the mind, body, and spirit connection. 

I am open to working with clients 15+ years and up and from all backgrounds.

I use various therapeutic techniques and believe in an individualized, strength-based approach to empower each person to reach their goals. I bring practical insight and compassion in working with individuals on anxiety, attachment, and life transitions.

I have specialized training in reproductive and perinatal mental health and healing.
