Williams Glasser, the founder of Choice Theory and Reality Therapy said, "It is impossible for anyone, even the most ineffective among us, to continue to choose misery- after becoming aware that it is a choice." If we are unable to assist you, then we will provide you with the necessary resources that are sure to meet your needs.   

Dunn-Kirkland Counseling & Consulting Services gives clients one-on-one sessions via Telehealth, in person and walk and talk therapy; so the client is able to continue what is needed and still receive counseling with someone who is objective as well as supportive.

 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 Aisha Holmes Thorn, LPC-S, NCC.  Mrs. Thorn 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 Aisha Holmes Thorn via email at thorn.counseling@icloud.com
