About Dr. Susan Thau

For almost 20 years, I have been working with couples of all ages and in all stages of partnering to find their way to a  deeper, more meaningful relationship.

 When  challenges occur, with work, health, loss or even the breach of infidelity, I have helped couples to get underneath their unresolved feelings, their reactivity, to find their love and connection again.

I am a certified EFT therapist, and my work is based on our biological longing to seek and bond with another person. 

I work with each couple to find out what each partner needs from their mate. These are the conversations that couples have in the safety of my office.

Building on this foundation, and learning to recognize the negative cycles that can interfere with this attachment bond, provides a road map which the couple can then further develop to help each other make their way through their life’s journey. The power and awakenings that come out of this experience gives the couple a new sense of hope. Feeling that they can help each other, not hurt each other or themselves, gives each partner a sense of well being that affects not only their primary relationship but the partners’ health and relationships with others. There is no more securing experience than to believe that you are not alone, that your partner is there for you.

I am also a certified discernment counselor. This means that I can help couples who are uncertain about their relationship,  and are on the brink,  wanting to examine what course they are taking. This brief therapy focuses on the issues of that decision which is a necesary step prior to beginning couple therapy.

Working with partners to figure out their relationship and what they bring to it is something I am fully committed to doing.
