I am Susan Dowell, LCSW. Welcome to Transforming Possibilities. I have chosen Transforming Possibilities as the name of my website because it is my goal to help you transform the challenges and difficulties you may be facing into new possibilities for yourself.  Choosing a psychotherapist is a big decision. You are looking for a therapist at a time when you are feeling distressed or unhappy or when you are having difficulty responding to challenging situations in your life. You want to find someone with whom you feel safe and understood, and who is experienced working with issues similar to yours. There are many good psychotherapists out there. But not everyone is right for you.

I'd like to take this opportunity to tell you about myself and to tell you about my background. I’d like to describe to you how I work. I have been a psychotherapist for over 35 years.

During this time, I have increasingly come to appreciate the importance of integrating a mind and body perspective in my work. I am convinced that this approach is central to effecting lasting change. I’ve been trained in many innovative psychotherapeutic approaches including Clinical Hypnosis, Somatic Experiencing, Brainspotting, EMDR, Marriage and Family Counseling, and Psychodrama. And I have developed a new and very powerful technique for working with Ego States, called Footprintings. Transforming Possibilities provides counseling and psychotherapy services for couples, families, groups and individuals in the New York City and Westchester area as well as individual and group clinical supervision for mental health practitioners.

In my counseling and psychotherapy practice I provide counseling services for people with a wide range of different issues, emotional, interpersonal and medical. In addition, I specialize in work with performance concerns and help people with such things as writer’s block, public speaking and concerns from a mind and body perspective and I try to keep current on the latest research. A description of my specialties can be found on the Specialties page in this website.

I believe it is important to recognize the uniqueness of each individual coming into my office. I will try to design and structure my work with you in a way that takes into account your abilities and potential, as well as concerns and problems. I will look towards helping you develop and strengthen your resources, and enhance your clarity of thought no matter what challenges you may face. Change is essential and change is possible. I believe that everyone can find ways to achieve mastery and healing in their lives, even in the most difficult of circumstances.

If you have any questions, you may contact me either by e-mail or on one of my office phones and we will find a time talk further. Please go to the Contact page on this site for the best ways to reach me.

Transforming Possibilities has been designed to provide you with the information you need, to best understand how I can be helpful to you. Please take a few minutes to browse through my website. You may discover a new direction that could lead you to mind and body wholeness. I look forward to meeting you.
