"During our weekly meetings, Suzanne and I discussed the way I was feeling, but also potential reasons for why I was experiencing those feelings. Not having seen a therapist before, I didn't — and don't — have anything to compare her methods to, but there was never pressure or judgement. Just listening and thoughtful questions. With the tools and guidance she provided, I was able to overcome my obstacles and begin to thrive...I am enormously grateful to Suzanne for assisting me as I learned to accept myself more and judge myself less, identify a path to contentment for myself and with my husband. "~ S.T., White Plains, NY
"My husband and I were feeling fatigued and desperate after having spent money, time, and energy with two marriage counselors who couldn't help us. When we met with Dr. Burger in marriage therapy, hope was restored. She deepened our understanding of one another's wounds and needs and equipped us with the skills we needed. She brought careful listening, compassion, expertise, and keen insight as well as a command of various approaches to the different issues at play in our relationship. We are very grateful to her for her counsel and guidance. "
~ A couple from Fairfield County, CT

"Suzanne...is a very warm and engaging therapist with an excellent sense of making you feel comfortable, reading your body language and extracting delicate information all while asking all the right questions. She was great at getting my wife and me to engage in topics we seldom spoke about and got us on the right track. She also recommends well chosen reading topics for us at home and exercises that were really positive at improving our communication. I highly recommend her!." ~ M.L., Pound Ridge, NY
"Suzanne Burger is an excellent choice as a speaker or as an individual selected to organize workshops for families and healthcare professionals. her depth of knowledge about the impact of illness on the family is extraordinary as she has both professional and personal experience with the ability to engage her audience. it is this ability - to engage, to interact, to reach out with tenderness that enhances her ability to teach. I recommend her as an outstanding speaker."
