Susan Ringle, MS, LPC, LPCC, RPT
Practices in Waukesha

It is an honor and a privilege for me to earn the trust of the individuals, couples, and families that I serve.   I focus on creating an environment that supports a sense of safety as well as an accepting and trusting relationship through which each Client can heal, grow and live life healthier and happier.   My style is honest, straightforward and egalitarian.  My approach is one of empathetic attunement and encouragement. In my experience, successful psychotherapy occurs when a Client feels safe, heard, and understood, when treatment is tailored to each Client’s values, needs and preferences, and when everyone can “just be real”.   Life can hurt, but therapy doesn’t have to.
