About Susanna Guarino

I'm a zen practicing therapist+musician and couples therapy expert who loves working with people on their journeys to healthier relationships and becoming their most authentic selves. I provide telehealth for clients in NY, RI and FL as well as in-person nature retreats for couples. Trees, books, stringed instruments and meditating outside make me really happy. 

I was raised fundamentalist (Reformed Baptist, Calvinist) and spent a lot of my childhood learning fire and brimstone theology and memorizing verses from the King James Bible. Needless to say I chose to leave the "sinners in the hands of an angry God" mentality behind when I grew up. The truth is, being hard on ourselves doesn't help us or anyone else. But compassion, love, acceptance and presence connect us to who we really are, and who we can become.

I love helping couples who are struggling with conflict in their relationships find ways to approach each other in calmer and more loving ways so they can go from at odds to at peace. Triggers don't have to escalate into giant fights that ruin your entire night. You can communicate without misunderstanding so that you both feel heard and understood. Your relationship can once again feel stronger than ever if you're willing to be honest with each other, and put in some hard work.
