Headshot of Susanna Yudkin in Field

My therapeutic approach is insight-oriented, relational, and collaborative. I work with adults, couples, and adolescents to make meaningful changes in their lives. Together, we will take the time to get to the heart of your story and uncover deep-rooted emotional patterns. I specialize in anxiety, depression, identity issues, relationship issues, and self-esteem.

 

I use psychodynamic theory to explore how our early experiences impact our current functioning. I believe we are most likely to make change within the context of a warm and supportive relationship, and I use the therapeutic relationship as one way to explore and heal. In our work together, I will gently challenge you to say the unsayable, learn to trust yourself, get out of your own way, and discover new ways to relate to yourself and others.

Therapy with me is not one-size-fits-all: I create a therapeutic space based on each of my clients' unique needs. My clients describe me as caring, thoughtful, and a good listener. I also use humor when appropriate, and hope that therapy can be not only meaningful and productive, but also positive and enjoyable. 

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in private practice in Denver, Colorado. I am also a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in the state of Massachusetts, and can conduct sessions remotely. I earned my Masters in Social Work with a concentration in Family Systems as well as a post-graduate certificate in Trauma therapy from the University of Denver Graduate School of Social Work. I also completed a post-graduate program in Marriage and Family therapy at Denver Family Institute, and am a Marriage and Family Therapist candidate.

Values

My therapeutic work is rooted in social justice. I support all forms of anti-oppression, including LGBTQIA+ rights, Anti-Racism, Feminism, Health at Every Size, and Sex Positivity. I strive to provide a safe space for people of all identities and backgrounds to feel seen, valued, and respected, while rejecting discrimination. I provide a non-judgmental, accepting environment to help clients heal from the impacts of identity-based trauma.
