Welcome! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Arizona and Colorado.  My passion for assisting people to heal and develop authentic connections with “Self” led to my work with adolescents, young adults, and families.



A warm welcome to you as you embark on your healing journey. I'm truly honored that you've chosen to learn more about this process. First and foremost, welcome to Mariposa Healing Center located in Denver, CO. I'm Susanne, a Licensed Clinical Counselor in both Colorado and Arizona. With over 25 years of experience, my dedication lies in assisting people to heal and develop authentic connections with their "Self." Throughout my career, I have worked with a diverse range of individuals, including adolescents, young adults, and adults, and running various therapeutic groups.


At Mariposa Healing Center, I provide a safe and nurturing space for individuals like you to explore, heal, and reconnect with your authentic self. Together, we will navigate the complexities of trauma, empowering you to reclaim your freedom and cultivate present-moment mindfulness.


My counseling background is rooted in complex developmental trauma, family systems, and cognitive-behavioral theoretical perspectives. I have gained clinical expertise in trauma-informed care, ensuring a comprehensive approach to support your healing journey. As an EMDRIA Approved Consultant and Trainer, I continuously strive to enhance my skills and knowledge in the field of trauma therapy.


With a holistic and experiential perspective, I approach trauma treatment by recognizing the uniqueness of each client and guiding them toward a state of wholeness. My extensive training encompasses various modalities to address developmental and complex trauma, including EMDR with an attachment and somatic focus, Internal Family Systems, Neurofeedback, Neuro Affective Relational Model (NARM) for attachment repair, Mindfulness, Post Induction Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapies. By integrating these approaches, I offer a comprehensive and personalized therapeutic experience to facilitate your healing journey.


Creating a safe therapeutic environment where trust and rapport can flourish is paramount to the healing process. I believe that therapy should not be an endless endeavor. By addressing the root causes of trauma, we can effectively treat the symptoms that hinder authenticity, freedom, and presence in one's life. The question of healing is answered with a resounding "Yes!" With motivation, a secure therapeutic space, and my expertise as a guide, you have the power to break free from patterns that no longer serve you. By nurturing both the brain and the body, we embark on a transformative journey toward freedom and connection—A Return to Wholeness.
