Dr. Susan R Holliday
Psychologist, RN, PhD
As a Nurse and a Psychologist, I use a relationship based format to understand what mechanisms a person has learned to cope with life stresses. I work with people to improve daily functioning and create a healthy and competent lifestyle. My approach uses methods from a variety of psychological theories. I try to individualize my approach to meet each client’s needs. I am interactive, combining listening and support with education and change.
At times, people may respond to life events with a mixture of negative emotions- anxiety, anger, depression. I help people understand the source and consequence of their emotions and behaviors and identify ways to change to regain a balanced life.
Because of my expertise in the biological basis of behavior, I work a lot with issues regarding psychological and physical interactions. I also deal with transitions and loss from adolescents to the elderly.
