NORTH PALM BEACH MARRIAGE COUNSELOR: SUSAN TINSLEY
I am originally from New Orleans, Louisiana. I received my undergraduate degree in Sociology from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. After finishing graduate school and practicing in Denver for several years, my family and I moved to Jupiter, Florida.
I received my Masters in Counseling from Regis University in Denver, Colorado. I hold a Post Masters Certification in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MT 2666) in the state of Florida. I am a Certified Clinical Sexologist by the American Board of Sexology ( ABS Certification No. 2926). I am a Nationally Certified Counselor (#259574).
I have worked with many diverse populations and issues. As a married mother, I will bring my life experiences as well as my clinical training into our sessions together.
I offer therapy services for individuals and couples facing all types of challenges. Together, we will develop a treatment plan designed to meet your needs and goals.
I see clients for 50 and 90 minute sessions at my office. I also offer intensive therapy sessions, 3 hours at a time. I offer Walk Therapy in 50 minute sessions to individuals only.
My style is directive. I believe the types of therapy I practice work well when the client is seeking solutions to addressing life challenges in a practical, straight forward way.
Call or email me to set schedule your discounted first session to see if I'm the right therapist for you.
My educational background is Holistic and community-based therapy. This means I will look at the entire system such as society, family, peers and self. A system can influence a person's perceptions, modes of interacting and style of communicating. The Holistic approach looks at the whole person including their overall mental and physical health, relationships and career.
I practice Solution focused therapy and Cognitive Behavioral therapy. Solution focused therapists believe that change is constant. This type of therapy focuses on what clients want to achieve through therapy rather than on the presenting problem. Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT) addresses issues concerning dysfunctional behaviors, patterns and emotions. The client will learn techniques on how to identify distortive thinking and change their behaviors.
