Susan Auman, is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Somatic Experiencing (SE) Practitioner and Professor of Social Work at Northeastern Illinois University.

"I believe that we humans heal in the context of relationship and that therapy is the process in which we find our way to our whole selves. In the therapy room, I join with clients to co-create their unique path to wholeness by realizing their inherent strengths and utilizing them to developing a 'tool belt' of strategies for which to work through life's struggles. Together we orient to the client's inherent capacity to gain mastery of their own functioning from the lens of their truth."

Susan is a relational body-centered, somatic psychotherapist specializing in the resolution of overwhelming life events and trauma. She works from the perspective that the mind and body function most effectively when guided to do so in tandem.  As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over two decades of experience, she works with people of all ages and all walks of life. Susan speaks Italian fluently and has an intermediate grasp of Spanish.

Availability: Susan is taking new clients. She is available for workshops, presentations or in-services regarding SE, Hakomi, and body-centered therapy for teens and adolescents
