ABOUT LIFE COUNSELING, LLC - Repairing Lives, Restoring Hope with Wisdom, Skill and Heart

Paula Susan, Relationship and Trauma Specialist Since 1982, Discusses The Loss of a Love That Once Radiated Your Life.

My office, here in South Jersey has been filled with couples aching for what once was. Sometimes the problem is not knowing how to enliven a weary relationship. Same routines often become boring.

I find communication and intimacy a primary issue. If you have not felt heard or understood, the way I teach communication will restore connection in a respectful, safe way.

Intimacy is created by authentic sharing of your needs and wants.

If the sex is little or none, if it doesn’t feel good, being able to discuss it in an effective way can lead to wonderful intimacy. There are books and videos to help partners face the disappointment they feel with each other in bed.

Anger, especially not discussed and resolved, will not lead to hot and loving sex There is that need for kind, authentic discussion.

Betrayal strikes at the core of the one who is the victim. It is ugly and hurtful. However it calls for the kind of counseling I do.  There lies in front of you, the path to healing for you and the betrayer. They had abandoned their values and self-respect.

Learning how to heal the hole in their relationship does happen here.

Divorce? Slow down and seek the path of your healing. Be certain that there is no way past this. Your children, family and friends will be happy that you chose to recreate love and trust.

And, you will not carry the anger, pain and shame into other relationships.

I am an integrated therapist. I learned EMDR from the researcher who found a way to go to the core of the issues and heal them, while offering insight.

I am proud to be spending my life leading the path, to wholeness, laughter, happiness, and when they slip, how to get back to using the skills I teach.

Call me at 609-975-8845. Our connection and, your willingness to bring your heart and soul into an experience of healing and connection will change your life.

Empowering Ourselves Interview

A Message From Paula Susan

During this terrible crisis and isolation, Paula Susan, Trauma and Relationship Specialist since 1982, is here to help you.  We can speak through telephone or Zoom and I will do counseling  that can transform your life.  Traumas - big and little - change the way we feel about ourselves, each other and the world.

I continue to study with the masters in my field.  And, I have integrated the most valuable ways of healing different issues, into the EMDR which I have creatively made my own.
