About Me

Specializing in relationship skill training, overcoming addiction, anxiety, and depression you will learn to be balanced, mind, body and spirit and have more satisfying relationships with yourself and others.

I’m Dr. Susan Pazak

For the past several years, many people have been attempting to find a way or ways to implement and maintain changes in their lives.  Whether your desire is to change a behavior, situation, appearance or lifestyle, all can be achieved with guidance and support!  I have been counseling and coaching people in Southern California for the past 10 years to attain balance, improve their lives, address problems and overcome addictions in an effective way.  

This website was created to help to give you options for you to help yourself through the process of change.  There are many steps in the process of change.  Week one you may feel very motivated and excited about your goals.  Week two feelings of frustration may set in.  Week three you may have to cope with feelings of disappointment in response to thoughts that may go something like “This isn’t working”, “I can’t do this any longer”, “This is not worth my sacrifice, maybe my old ways were not so bad”.  If these thoughts or feelings sound familiar, I can help you to finally identify and overcome these and other hurdles that may be interfering with your progress.

Don’t Spend Another Minute Wanting to Change…Begin Today!
