About the Facilitators
Susan provides graduate students individual and group counselling, as well as workshops on topics including perfectionism, relationships with supervisors, and impostor syndrome. Her orientation is primarily psychodynamic within an anti-oppression framework. If you feel stuck, blocked, or overwhelmed she will explore with you ways you might be experiencing old or familiar patterns of feeling, thinking, and behaving that may not be serving you in the present. Before becoming a counsellor Susan was an English professor, giving her years of personal experience of the trials and rewards of grad school and academic life.
