Susan Horvat is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor located in Beverly Hills, CA. Susan provides excellent clinical care for clients who suffer from mood disorders such as anxiety, depression, or bipolar disorder. She also specializes in supporting clients who have personality disorders, specifically Borderline Personality Disorder, and feel disconnected from themselves and others and find themselves constantly in conflict with loved ones. She is passionate about helping clients who previously experienced traumatic events move forward in their lives.
In her practice, Susan uses Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to give clients the tools they need to manage their emotions. She teaches clients different ways to handle feelings of stress, anger, frustration, and sadness. Using these coping skills, clients learn to take time to assess their emotions before reacting to them. Susan also uses a therapy approach called Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), which helps clients process through traumatic memories to decrease their impact on the present day. Susan is certified in DBT by the Linehan Board of Certification.
Susan earned her Master’s degree from the Minnesota School of Professional Psychology. Clients who work with Susan grow their resiliency through mindfulness, expression, and the ability to respond to stressors effectively. Susan empowers her clients to take care of themselves and take the next step in their mental health journey.
