Counseling at St. John's

Susan Brumbaugh, MA, LMHC

Are you feeling stuck? Desperate? Alone?

I want to help you stop struggling with and suffering from the things that keep you stuck. I believe you have strengths to draw from and values that can motivate and guide you, and we can find those things together. My goal as a counselor is to create a space where you feel safe saying out loud all the jumbled- up or self-critical things going on in your head, examining them together, figuring out what is keeping you stuck, and identifying strategies that help you live a rich, full, and meaningful life. I would be honored to work with you on finding a way out of the muck.


Transforming lives by
connecting people to their
own strengths and futures
through an environment of
caring and trust


People are unstuck and
taking actions in line with
their values so that they can
lead rich, meaningful lives

During the pandemic sessions are web-based only.



I offer in-person and online counseling
services to adults, ages 18 and older. I
work with clients who are feeling stuck
due to depression, anxiety, career
transitions (including retirement),
chronic health conditions, caregiving
stresses, and spiritual searching.

About the Location

Please know that you don't have to be
a member of St. John’s UMC, a Christian, or believe anything in particular to work with me. If spirituality is important to you and you want to include that in counseling,
I'm open to that, but it's certainly not required.

About Me

I tend to be that person friends go to
when they need to talk something
through, and nothing makes me feel
more fulfilled than to be able to listen
with my whole heart and offer another
perspective to help people find their
own strengths and solutions. I have a
Master of Arts in counseling and
guidance and am a Licensed Mental
Health Counselor in New Mexico. In my
role as a counselor, I am an employee of
St. John’s. I also have a Ph.D. in sociology
and do research in criminal justice for a
non-profit research company.

conversations or electronic
communications to confirm or cancel
appointments are included in the fees
paid for treatment. Payment is expected
at the time of each appointment by cash,
check, or credit card. The church does
not file insurance claims on your behalf,
but I can provide you with a receipt/
