Welcome 

 

 

Welcome to my website.  My name is Dr. Sue Griffith and I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (License #MFC32319) with a private practice in the Long Beach, CA area.  I work with individuals, couples and families.  I provide an opportunity for people to grow and heal, in a safe, supportive, non-judgmental and nurturing environment. 

I have a number of specialties, such as healing Trauma and Dissociative dissorders, Adults with Attention Deficit Disorder or ADD, Adults molested as children, Adults molested as children by trusted Clergy, Addictions and codependency issues, to name a few.  My approach is holistic, meaning that I work with the mind, body and spirit. 

I also welcome those who simply want the added flexibility good therapy can achieve, enabling them to live fuller, richer, happier lives. 

I believe that Psychotherapy is a process of self-exploration and discovery that happens by way of dialogue between therapist and client.  The therapist and client come together to learn more about the client’s presenting issues and to mobilize their abilities to respond to situations in constructive ways.  Often, through this process, clients make connections between seemingly unrelated elements of their lives and discover their own answers to perplexing life questions. 

The essence of psychotherapy is listening (in a context of safety).  As the therapist listens carefully to the client, the client learns to listen more respectfully and fully to him or herself.  Through the process of honoring one’s own experience, clients discover sources of inner guidance.

The greatest gift that I can offer others who are seeking to find answers for themselves in their life is an absolute belief in their core goodness.  No matter what the circumstances, what the presenting issues, what I see and respond to is their innate ability to discover their own solutions once they are able to trust themselves and acknowledge who they are in the present.  The most important ingredient in the therapist is the ability to trust and believe in the client’s own capacity to find their internal resources to make the changes needed. 

I see myself as a facilitator that provides the trusting container, providing safety and a trusting environment.  In this therapeutic atmosphere, others feel safe enough to speak their own truth and I have the unique opportunity to witness the transformation that happens in this process.
