  • Suzanne Lafauce, LCPC

    Hi, I am Suzanne LaFauce.  The focus of my work is on helping individuals and couples develop healthier relationships with themselves and the people in their lives.

    My philosophy is represented in Steve Marboli’s statement:

    “The power to change your life lies in the simplest of steps.” 

    As someone seeking to transform your life, some questions you may have are:

    • What is stopping me from living a fulfilled and balanced life? 
    • What is my value/worth?
    • Am I on the right path?
    • Why do I feel anxious for no reason?
    • Why is it difficult for me to adapt to change?

    I am committed to helping you answer these questions and more as I strive to assist you in empowering yourself to create positive change. My therapeutic approach is client-centered with a focus on the client’s personal strengths. I strongly believe in facilitating a positive environment to empower clients to add tools to their emotional toolbox. My goal is to provide a safe, genuine, and empathic environment, collaborating with the client to facilitate meaningful positive change. I am LGBTQ+ affirming and use a holistic approach to therapy.

    It is my privilege to help individuals build healthy lives, and reduce anxiety, and depression by utilizing evidence-based methods like CBT and Prolonged exposure therapy.  I am fortunate to be fluent in American Sign language, this allows me to provide service to a population that is often overseen. I am able to not only communicate but also understand the deaf culture. 

    About Me

    I am a licensed clinical professional counselor in the state of Maryland and Vermont.  My educational background includes an undergraduate degree in Rehabilitation Counseling from Northern Illinois University and a Master of Science degree in Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling from Texas Tech University.  

    While completing my degree, I worked in the mental health field supporting adults struggling with anxiety, depression, mood disorders, and schizoaffective disorders. Building upon my knowledge and experience, I completed an internship as an outpatient therapist for adults in community mental health services.

    While not working, I enjoy biking and hiking outdoors, mindful coloring, reading mystery novels, and spending time with family and friends.
