Sue-Ann Simpson, MSW

sue ann_edited.jpg

Sue-Ann Simpson (she/her) is a late diagnosed Autistic therapist who firmly believes in the power of empathy, validation, rapport, and unconditional positive regard. Sue-Ann enjoys working with clients from all walks of life, especially those who relate to feeling neurodivergent, 2SLGBTQIA+, who struggle with unhealthy relationships or a history of domestic violence, who have endured lifelong anxiety and depression, or who struggle with being a marginalized population.

 

Her theoretical orientations stem from Mindfulness practices,  Strengths Perspective, Person Centered, Motivational Interviewing, Applied Behavior Analysis, Cognitive Behavioral,  and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.  She also has a passion for ecotherapy and incorporates connecting with nature into her life as a form of healing whenever possible. 

 

If you want to avoid eye contact during your session time, that’s okay. If you want to fidget, color, or pace around the room, that’s fine too. If you manage to crawl out of bed and show up in your pajamas, there will be no judgment. Hopefully you will find a space where you can feel free to be your genuine, authentic self. 

 

Originally a barista, then ABA therapist, then IT technician, Sue-Ann returned to school after a seven year gap to complete her Masters of Social Work from Grand Valley State University in 2022. She completed her undergraduate in Behavior Science with a minor in Anthropology at Western Michigan University (2014) after completing two years at Kalamazoo Valley Community College (2012). 

Accepted insurance plans: BCBS, Aetna, Out-of-Network, Private Pay
