Susan Abelson, LICSW, MPH
Director and Founder,
Intentional Parenting Center

Susan nurtures, guides, supports and gently encourages clients to explore how their early beginnings shape the way they love, tolerate pain, connect to others, identify their own voice, parent, manage change and create dreams and hopes for their future. By developing a cohesive storyline, clients learn to reframe events, respond rather than react, detach from turbulent feelings and to compassionately reparent themselves enhancing their ability to nurture others in their care. For parents, Susan identifies ways for them to meet the developmental needs of their children through understanding, improved communication, strengthening connection and setting limits.
