Suzanne Buchanan

Hello, my name is Suzanne Buchanan. As owner and counselor at Another Chance Counseling, I offer a safe, non-judgmental place to process and learn how to overcome the challenges you’re facing. My years of working as a therapist and school social worker have given me the skills and empathy to help you move forward with confidence and hope. If mental illness or substance misuse is affecting you or someone you care about, I’ll equip you with the tools and support you need.

I bring expertise in working with both adults and adolescents, individually and in groups. I work most often with family members of those dealing with mental illness (Schizophrenia, Schizo-affective disorder, Bipolar disorder, Major Depressive Disorder) and substance misuse. I also serve those affected directly by the same issues.
