Welcome to my private practice, Meliora Psychotherapy and Supervision. My name is Susan Santiago-Turner, and I’m a licensed mental health counselor with a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology and a PhD in Counselor Education. I specialize in counseling cisgender women, 50 and older, who have experienced the horror of incest and now find themselves struggling with the decision to care for a parent who didn't protect them from abuse. I have over 20-years of clinical expertise in intergenerational trauma, and offer a strengths-based approach to help you find clarity and live life on your own terms. Together, we can heal and create a safer world for ourselves and subsequent generations.
