Hello my name is Susan Flowers. I received my undergraduate and graduate degree in Clinical Social Work from the University of Cincinnati.
I have practiced in a multitude of facets in the Cincinnati area. I have worked with adults and children with mental health and substance abuse disorders in the office/court/home settings/in-patient facility and incarceration to assist the adult, child and families identify the tools needed to be successful in their day to day lives.
After 25 years of working with children and adults with significant mental health issues I confirmed that no matter what there is a key component to being healthy physically and mentally. It is relationships! Relationships are a cornerstone to living a peaceful and fulfilled life.
To say that relationships are difficult is an understatement. Relationships can be complicated. Understanding the emotions of others is not always simple, but is not impossible. Emotions are central to relationships and when you and your partner share in understanding these emotions they slow down and don't rock you or tip over your relationship. Relationships can flourish in a healthy way with understanding being the key ingredient, even more than love. For a healthy relationship to thrive, love is great but you also need understanding, which then only deepens love with trust, commitment, and respect.
It is my desire to assist adult couples/partners in increasing their ability to do just this.
