Suzanne's graduate thesis was focused on Attachment Disorder as a Disruption of Heart Connection - exploring how early attachment experiences impact how a child (and later an adult) will be challenged with organizing emotions, forming co-dependent and addictive relationships and creating maladaptive schemas (core beliefs).
Suzanne completed a 700-hour clinical internship working with traumatized infants and young children during the earliest weeks and years of their lives, the time when the attachment relationship is being formed, and when many attachment challenges arise. This was a significant part of Suzanne's early clinical work which informs her psychotherapy practice with adults and couples.
