Dr. Susannah-Joy Schuilenberg Claimed

Helping you reclaim your life and relationships

Dr. Susannah-Joy Schuilenberg, RPC, MPCC-S, CCTP, DAAETS, ACS is a psychotherapist with years of experience with all forms of trauma. She has pursued significant expertise in trauma processing, including the depression, anxiety, and grief that is part of reconciling the experience of life-altering events. As a consequence of her work with active duty soldiers, military contractors, and victims of war, she was invited in 2010 by the US Department of Veterans’ Affairs to participate in a trauma research project for practicing clinicians. She has since been included in three more projects; with Stanford University, Faculty of Medicine, the New England Research Institute, and the National Center for PTSD. In 2017 she was named a founding member of the PTSD Clinicians Exchange, a resource for trauma therapists around the world. In addition to trauma, she provides support for employers and employees to address compassion fatigue and burn out, and consults on developing mentally healthy workplaces. In the professional community Susannah-Joy offers clinical supervision and Master Classes, and serves as an ethics consultant for a number of organizations. She has been a member of the World Health Organization Global Clinical Practice Network since 2012 and served as a field reviewer for the ICD-11 (Mental and Behavioural Disorders) completed in May 2019 and expected to be implemented January 2022.

Susannah-Joy is co-founder & Director of Clinical Services for William & Associates counselling Services, a private psychology practice she and her husband, Bill (also a psychotherapist) founded in 2015.
