Susan Harper, M.A.
Office: Potter Hall 409
Licensed Professional Counselor
I am a Bowling Green native and two-time WKU graduate. I received my Bachelor’s in Child and Family Studies in 2011, and taught Adult Education at SKYCTC until beginning my Master’s program in 2013. I completed my Master’s in Marriage, Couple and Family Counseling in 2016 and began working as a Therapist at a community mental health agency. I love being a Counselor and I am very excited to be back on the hill and to be joining the CTC!
My personal interests include yoga, meditation, social justice issues, mindfulness, music, and so many more! I have a true passion for breaking stigmas associated with discussing mental health, and I am so grateful to be in a career field that allows me to do so.
I view my clients first and foremost as individuals, not as a diagnosis. I work to always come from a nonjudgmental and unbiased place, and to accept and meet my clients where they are in life, without expectations. I believe that a Counseling office should provide a safe environment where clients are free to be themselves without fear of judgment. I view my role in therapy as that of a facilitator. I do not heal my clients, I cannot force any client to make changes within their own life; however, I can provide the client with tools and a path that will allow them to make their own changes and heal themselves. This healing process has no time limit, and can only occur when the client is ready. To me, being a Counselor means not only holding space for my clients, but being an advocate and an ally, as well.
