Susan Steinke, LCPC, CYT-200
We all have our own unique story to tell. But many of life’s challenges can interfere with our ability to fully share it with others, and even ourselves. Perhaps you struggle to balance multiple life roles, have difficulty practicing self-compassion, or find that stress and anxiety leave you feeling depleted. You are not alone. You deserve to live a full and meaningful life; You deserve to share your story!
I offer a collaborative, caring, creative approach, and invite clients to become curious about themselves and their experiences; I am here to support you as you explore new ways of becoming ‘unstuck.’
As a drama therapist, I incorporate art, movement, improvisation, and role-play into the process, to help foster self-expression and to give you the opportunity to explore difficult emotions in a safe environment. Drama has helped me in my own journey of self-discovery and I truly believe in the empowering nature of storytelling and play. Drama therapy is an active, experiential, and embodied practice.
I am an LCPC with a graduate degree in Counseling Psychology from North Park University, as well as a Certified Yoga Teacher. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, mood disorders, trauma, and difficult life transitions. I am a drama therapist currently working towards credentialing. My therapeutic approach is eclectic and tailored to your needs; also drawing from Humanistic Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness.
