My Christian background supports clients who want to integrate their faith with their counseling process. I have been trained in several Christ-centered healing methods that assist a person to access the spiritual roots of their issues. Allowing the Holy Spirit to do the work through prayer and releasing can be very fundamental to removing blockages for their wholeness. So if looking for a Christian counselor I can help you integrate your values in your counseling process. I work with a range of issues ranging from all types of traumas such as childhood abuse, bullying, divorce, and PTSD.
In addition to transitional forms of talk therapy, Splankna is a mind-body work effective in releasing and healing some emotional traumas. Three methods of energy work are incorporated into this therapy; Neuro-Emotional Technique, Thought Field Therapy, and E.M.D.R. It is founded on a Christian theology that offers a holistic mind, body and spirit approach to emotional healing incorporating prayer and intention to release old programming.

“I would highly recommend Suzanne B. Simpson as a speaker and facilitator for churches and women’s groups. She offers great practical insights for women seeking to connect more deeply with Christ. Her style is full of grace and affirmation, and she is especially adept at facilitating discussions, asking good questions and drawing the group together as they share their hearts with one another. We all benefited from her teaching.”
