Kyla Duhart LCSW, Cedar Ridge Counseling
Susan Lekel, LCSW-C, LICSW, LCSW works from a collaborative and relational perspective, and believes our therapeutic relationship is the foundation for a successful outcome. She has a special interest in wellness and the mind-body connection and in treating the whole person. She also has post-graduate training in Jungian-informed psychotherapy, which incorporates creative and expressive techniques including dreamwork. This perspective can offer a “deeper-dive” in therapy that Susan believes can promote insight, growth, and a richer life.

Susan earned a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Maryland and completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Dance with a Concentration in Dance Movement Therapy at Goucher College in Baltimore, MD. Prior to joining Cedar Ridge Counseling Center, she provided therapy in outpatient behavioral health clinics in the DC and Baltimore Metro Region beginning in 2004.

Susan specializes in working with individuals ages 16 and up. While her focus is individual therapy, she also has experience providing couples, group, and family therapy, which can be utilized as appropriate in our work.
