Hi, my name is Susan Roop, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. Thanks for checking out our site.
I am the practice manager and senior clinician here at Inspiring Change. I worked to start this business because I wanted to be different than other businesses that provide Outpatient Mental Health Services in Butler and surrounding counties.
We strive to provide excellent customer service. We answer calls and emails promptly. We schedule people usually within one week of first contact. We engage with the people that we serve to collaborate about their treatment with them.
I would like to tell you about some of our specialties. Working with people with depression and anxiety is the foundation of our practice. We work with individuals who have experienced trauma. Sometimes when people experience trauma, the unresolved trauma symptoms affect people’s daily functioning in a negative way. People start to have problems with relationships and getting along in the workplace, having anxiety, depression, nightmares and flashbacks. We specialize in working with people with unresolved trauma issues so they can live a more full and happy life.
We have specialized skills working with kids and adults who have attachment issues. We’re learning that in today’s world, many people don’t have the skills to attach to others, especially those who come from foster and adoptive families. This can cause a lot of problems in people’s lives. We have been partnering with adoption agencies to work with kids who specifically have what we call Reactive Attachment Disorder. We are partnering with a support group that helps parents who have children with Reactive Attachment Disorder. People contact us from all across the United States for training and consultation about kids with Reactive Attachment Disorder and regressive behaviors.
We provide “all kinds of therapy for all kinds of people”. We work with people who have traditionally identified as part of the LBGTQ community. Here at Inspiring Change we ask ourselves “What does LGBTQ spell?” We believe it spells PEOPLE. This means that we work with diverse family constellations and individuals. Some identify as same gender couples, couples who identify as cisgender, gender fluid, gender queer or gender non-conforming. We meet individuals who are in various stages of transition. As a result of our work with transgender individuals, we just started a support group here called ‘Transtastic’ which meets the first Saturday of the month from 4-5pm. This is a consumer run group whose purpose is to provide ‘equality through education’.
We have a couple of other therapists who work here, Amy and Susan. Amy Swigart is a part-time consultant who works closely with kids with Reactive Attachment Disorder. Susan Johnson works closely with people who have experienced trauma, mental health problems and are working on relapse prevention. Please check out their pages to learn more about them.
Please give us a call or email, we’d love to meet you and talk about what you would like to do, your goal is our goal. Thank you so much for checking us out!
