Susan Meyerle, PhD, LIMHP, CEAP, CFLE

Susan is the owner of Life Resources LLC.  She is an established author, college professor and therapist.  Focusing on positive psychology and improving the workplace mentality. Susan facilitates trainings and speaks at various national conferences.

I believe that the client should determine the goals for therapy, based on their particular concerns.  Each client identifies how they would determine whether counseling was successful at the beginning of treatment. These become the therapeutic goals for our sessions. I work with individuals, couples, and families who seek to create positive, lasting changes in their lives.  While I am a Christian person, the religious orientation of our sessions (if any) is determined by the client.
