Suzie Quan is a Registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist with extensive experience in supporting individuals, couples, and families of all ages in private, public, and non-profit clinical settings. She holds high value in open, honest communications and authentic connection with people on a humanistic level.
Suzie recognizes that every individual is unique and will collaborate with them to develop a plan to achieve goals using an eclectic approach with an array of treatment modalities that work best for them.
Suzie believes that a person’s life experiences often inform the way they live and that some tend to create narratives of their lives that sometimes affect their self-perception and self-worth. These stories can be self-limiting and often lead one to repeat the same patterns repetitively with undesirable outcomes. She is passionate about helping her clients reconstruct their narratives and recognize their inner strengths, value and worth. Suzie also teaches clients coping strategies that can help build self-confidence, empower, increase their happiness, and improve overall well-being.
Suzie specializes in grief and bereavement, stress, anxiety, and depression which can result from losses through death or other life stressors of loss and transitions. She focuses on supporting clients in their life journeys, those with life threatening illnesses, and those impacted by trauma, as well as their family and caregivers.
Suzie completed her Master of Social Work from Wurzweiler Graduate School of Social Work in New York. She is a member in good standing of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW) as well as Ontario Association of Social Workers (OASW).
