 About Your Counselor

Susan C. Kirkland, M. Ed, ALC

I received a Bachelors of Science in English and Masters in School Counseling.   I have been a School Counselor for seven years and prior to that I taught English for six years.  I wanted to pursue private practice because I wanted to reach adolescents and adults and devote time that was intentional in navigating issues that have plagued clients.   I am devoted to building relationships with clients that are based on trust.  

I am an Associate Licensed Counselor-ALC-04396 under the supervision of Courtney Benjamin, LPC-S, C-DBT, PMH-SC3240.  Mrs. Benjamin will review and consult in a supervisory capacity.  The professional relationship is bound by the same confidentiality that will exist between myself and clients.  If you have any questions regarding my practice you may contact Courtney Benjamin at 205-538-0244 or via email at courtney@benjamincounselingandconsulting.com.
