The BodyWise Vision
The vision here at BodyWise Psychotherapy, LLC is to support as many individuals as possible to transform life challenges into life-enhancing opportunities. Susana Potter aims to empower each client’s sense of wellness by helping them connect to their “body wisdom” in their own unique way.
Mental Health equates to the integration: Here at BodyWise, wellness is defined as: equilibrium and integration between the emotional, cognitive, somatic, sexual and spiritual aspects of an individual.
Multi-Cultural Diversity Competence: Understanding the various layers which make up identity and how an individual may experience power, privilege and oppression is an important part of the counseling process.
Client-Centered: Although the therapist may have knowledge and skills which can be used to support the client. It is ultimately the client who is the “expert” of their own life and therefore is encouraged to lead their therapeutic journey.
Present Moment Focused: Looking at your history to better understand yourself may be as useful as having goals to work towards in the future. However, the focus of counseling at BodyWise Psychotherapy is to look at what is relevant right here, right now.
Empowerment Focused: Despite the hand you may have been dealt in life or the challenges you may currently be facing, there is always potential for growth and mastery over your life.
Susana is dedicated to meeting each one of her clients where they are at in their life journey with the upmost respect for who they are. A major aspect of Susana’s mission is to provide services which clearly hold multicultural sensitivity and advocacy for equality as core principals. She is passionate about her work in uplifting people of color, queer folks and allies to feel empowered to create the life they want.
