Not currently accepting patients

Hi there, I'm Susan!

Hello, I am Susan Badra, LCSW 111642. I am licensed in California with 15 years of professional work experience. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to seek a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.

My approach

I focus on supporting a diverse population of clients through a person-centered approach. Holding a therapeutic relationship driven by client-led goals and values, I often invite clients to explore both thoughts and feelings to better approach healthy ways of coping with their human experiences.

My focus

I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, coping with addictions, LGBT-related issues, & trauma, and abuse.

My communication style

Transparent conversation with a clear view of reality while keeping the client at the center.

My journey to mental healthcare

My life has not been ordinary and because of that, I don't expect people to be ordinary. In fact, I know that each human is unique and has a specific purpose unique to that individual. I am accepting and I work towards being free of judgment. Unpacking, learning, growing, and thriving is a journey.

My goals for you

My approach to goal setting is that I allow the client to lead.

My first session with you

You will most likely leave feeling energized and excited to begin the work!
