Contributions Susan takes her job seriously, she states, I have a goal, my goal is to have all the knowledge and information and availability for my clients, so they can move on and face life prepared and strong. Through a loss one will come to see themselves in a new light, and may feel the strength and meaning of life before the loss. With my background of working with various associations, Susan can utilize her knowledge to encourage them in the right direction when going through that loss. Being a member of various groups gives her the opportunity to offer her expertise in various ways. The associations Susan donates time to are: Association for Integrative Mind/Body Medicine, American Art Association, National Association Social Work, National Academy of Bereavement , Gerontological Society pf America, American Group Psychotherapy Association, Palos Verdes, Calif. Chamber of Commerce, Torrance Kiwanis. Being a participant in these various diverse associations has been an eye opening learning experience. I want to use all my expertise I have acquired to help my clients to the fullest.
