Focused on treating the complete body, mind and spirit, Susan Short began meditating fifteen years ago. With daily practice, the benefits of her practice continue to deepen and expand. Having experienced the positive effects firsthand, and having trained in the use and benefits of meditation, Susan believes the success of counseling, and ultimately life fulfillment, can be enhanced significantly when breath awareness, meditation, and mindfulness are part of the treatment. Susan has a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from Northwestern University, and has completed a year-long deep study in Meditation Teacher Training. She continues to study at Touching Earth Mindfulness Center in Evanston. Susan works with individuals and groups in the Chicagoland area.
