Susan Walters, LMHC

Biography

I received my degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (LMHC), with a specialization in School Adjustment and Community Counseling from Lesley University. I am also licensed by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education in Massachusetts as a School Social Work/School Adjustment Counselor. I offer an eclectic approach to individual therapy that is personally tailored to the treatment goals for school-aged children, adolescents and adults.


Prior to joining Dana Group Associates, I was a program director for an outpatient community-focused clinic that provided mental health, substance use disorder counseling and psychiatry for 8 years. I have familiarity with the juvenile and adult court-referral process for substance abuse treatment and providing substance abuse evaluations.


Additionally, I work with children, adolescents and adults who have learning disabilities who benefit from learning strategies to succeed at school, work, and socially.
