Susan Hoffman, LPC in Georgia
Susan is a licensed professional counselor in Georgia serving as a consultant to Oak Tree as she is steeped in group and 1:1 care. She trained at Acadia Healthcare psychiatric hospital in Georgia which specializes in acute, short-term care and substance detox. Susan quickly moved to lead therapist of the adult out-patient unit overseeing the partial hospitalization program (PHP) and intensive outpatient program (IOP) – the cornerstones of group work. After several years with Acadia, Susan moved to Life Stance and now sees clients 1:1. Additionally, Susan is Jamie Hoffman’s mother. Susan’s desire to pursue her masters in mental health counseling was based, in part, on Jamie’s struggle to get sober, her own struggles to manage the devastation of addiction and to help others achieve health and wellbeing.
