with Therapy

Claripy Counseling started as one woman’s effort to promote the benefits of talk therapy. If you are wondering if talk therapy can help you, schedule a risk-free 30-minute free phone consultation to see if talk therapy is right for you. Claripy has two locations: one downtown Milwaukee location and one in Mequon, Wisconsin.

Our Mission: To make therapy mainstream as an integral part of preventative healthcare.

Susan’s Services

It is very difficult to see a situation clearly from all angles on your own. Seeing a therapist is not a sign of personal failure or weakness. Rather it is a tool that can be used to help you gain clarity in your life. Through talk therapy, people are able to vocalize their thoughts to help them understand themselves and their challenges better. Talk therapy teaches us healthy ways of processing and expressing emotions, dealing with other people, and coping with circumstances within and beyond our control.
