Suzanne Gazzolo, Ph.D., LCPC

Suzanne has been a practicing licensed clinical counselor for over 20 years. Her early training and dissertation were rooted in relational and feminist ideas. Inspired by hearing Michael White speak about the social justice orientation of Narrative Therapy, Suzanne immersed herself in learning more about post-structural and narrative ideas at the Evanston Family Therapy Center in Evanston, Ill.. There she linked with a group of practitioners that continue to collaborate to this day. Matt Mooney has been part of this group and through him, Suzanne was introduced to the exciting work of the Narrative Therapy Initiative and Steve Gaddis. Suzanne works with individuals and families in her independent counseling practice and also enjoys consulting, mentoring, supervision and presenting on topics related to narrative practice. She is on the faculty of Evanston Family Therapy Center and NTI. Suzanne can be reached at (847) 280-0564 or sgazzolo@mac.com.
