About Susan Winters-Griste

I earned my Bachelor’s of Art in Psychology from Ursinus College in 1995 and then a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy with a focus on Systemic Thinking from Hahnemann University in 1998. I am a Clinical Fellow of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) and served as Chester County Regional Director for the Pennsylvania Association of Marriage and Family Therapists  (PAMFT)  Board from 2013 -2016.  I am a Licensed Clinician with over 15 years of experience in working with Individuals, Couples and Families in the counseling process of positive change utilizing the "systems approach" to assessment. 

 

I recognize that making the decision to pursue counseling is an important part of the process. Keeping that in mind, I offer a 20-minute complimentary consultation for those who would like to meet me and learn more about how I work. 

 

As an author and speaker, I am fortunate to be able to share my insight and methodology with a larger audience. Feel free to contact me regarding a speaking engagement. Take Aways: A Little Book of Reflections are a collection of thoughtful questions and reflections that were inspired through my years of working with individuals on their journeys.
