Dr. Noah Susswein

Registered Psychologist

From Noah, clients receive respect, care, interest, and acceptance. He views therapy as a relationship based on trust and truth that is generally aimed towards understanding and empowerment. He aims to facilitate healing and growth in clients of all ages and to help parents foster healing and growth in their own children. Specific treatment strategies are determined through collaboration with clients on a case-by-case basis. Noah’s job is to match evidence-based treatment approaches to clients’ unique values, goals, and presenting problems.

As a speaker, Noah seeks to make complex and ideas about development and mental health accessible and thought-provoking. He’d much rather stimulate reflection and debate in his listeners and then be regarded as absolute authority. He’s also passionate about teaching and mentoring new psychologists and serves on the Education Committee of the BC Psychological Association.
