Hi, my name is Susan Love. Thank you for taking the time to visit my site!
I am a holistic psychotherapist based in Grayslake, Illinois. I received my formal training in clinical social work at Loyola University School of Social Work. I am certified by A.C.P.I. as a parent coach and am also a certified Simplicity Parenting counselor and coach.
I offer psychotherapy and parent coaching via video and telephone telehealth, making it possible for clients who live outside the local area to receive support and guidance. In addition to my work as a therapist and coach, I spent several years in Waldorf education. As a mother, stepmother, and woman with the wisdom and perspective of age, I have seen firsthand how modern life's stress and toxicity have led to epidemic levels of anxiety and depression.
My goal as a psychotherapist is to help my clients to heal the pain they carry and reconnect with their authentic selves, their purpose, joy and passion. My goal as a parent coach is to help parents reconnect with their own intuition and gain the tools and confidence to reduce their family’s everyday stress and create a deep, mutually joyful connection with their children.
I specialize in helping individuals and families address a wide range of concerns, including anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, relationship issues, and behavioral difficulties. My approach is holistic, meaning that I address the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of my clients' lives in order to help them achieve balance and fulfillment.
The parents I have worked with have seen firsthand the transformative power of this approach, experiencing happier, better-behaved children and a sense of inner peace and satisfaction they once only dreamed of.
