Susan Barbour, Ed.D. Psychologist

Phone: 414-368-0460



I create a comfortable place, calming space, and time enough to help you with painful feelings that prevent you from living, working and loving in a fulfilling and satisfying way. Everyone who comes to therapy is seeking a chance to renew, restore and thrive. Therapy begins as we form a trusting therapeutic relationship. I see many who have not been sufficiently helped by prior therapy. I consider you a whole person; present and past, mind and body.

I am a psychologist with over twenty years of experience in a variety of practice settings. I see adults who experience depression, anxiety, stress, loneliness, loss, relationship, and self-esteem issues, as well as women facing mid-life transitions. I specialize in helping moms with postpartum depression, anxiety, infertility and miscarriage and university faculty, staff and students on campus issues.

As a psychoanalyst in the 21st century, I invite those curious about their inner world of dreams, and fantasies, to consider depth work to transform repetitive patterns of experience. I work from object relations, attachment, development and intersubjectivity perspectives.

In addition to psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, I provide consultation to medical, psychiatric, and mental health students, residents and professionals to better help their clients.

Payment is due at each session or in advance for a block of sessions  I accept check and credit cards including health savings accounts. I am out-of-network with insurance companies and recommend you inquire what reimbursement you may receive. I want my clients to be able to afford the help they need, and so I will consider a sliding scale based on annual household income.


Let’s have a brief conversation to see if it is a good fit. Then, I will email a link to you so you may access the on-line portal to Dynamic Psychotherapy Associates, LLC to download and complete forms in advance of our first meeting.
