Dr. Susan Boafo-Arthur

(NCC, LPC, LCMHC)

About Me

Hi,
My name is Susan and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I have been a Christian since my early teenage years. My life's vision and goals have been continually shaped by my faith. I have a firm belief in the words of Philippians 4:13 and hope that in our work together I can inspire hope and the belief that your situation will change for the better. I believe that the counseling in combination with the tenets of the Christian faith makes for more effective and consistent changes as opposed to talk-therapy alone.

I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, stress and anxiety, career related concerns, family and other relational issues, self-esteem, acculturation and transition related to immigration. I have also worked in individual, family and group therapy sessions in an outpatient setting. Additionally, I have also devoted a significant amount of time in working with international students and immigrant populations.

I have a warm and interactive style of counseling and draw from different therapeutic approaches based on client's presenting concerns, goals, and motivation. I aim to provide the best level of care to my clients as they work to become the person they want to be. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, solution focused, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Dr. Biafo-Arthur is a blessing. This is my first time doing counseling and she has made the process so comfortable for me.

Dr. Boafo-Arthur is an excellent counselor. She is a good listener and also offered"practical solutions" as well as teaching / coaching me on how to better take care of myself emotionally and mentally. I highly recommend her!

Susan is a fantastic listener and organized multitasker at the same time! She doesn’t miss a word I say and has plenty of resources and experiences to share with me that are on point!

Susan during my dark time, you were truly a light in the midst of darkness as an ambassador of Christ....you have no idea how grateful I am foe you bc I don’t know how well things would’ve ended up if I had to deal with it on my own. You’re a safe haven, I never felt judged or insufficient.

Well I could go on and on but overall...thank you! God continue to increase you in knowledge, wisdom, strength, favor, grace, love and compassion.

She is very helpful.

I adore Dr. Baofo-Arthur. Not only is she a wise counselor, she’s relatable too. She’ll be your number one supporter in pursuing your dreams, but genuinely checks in that you’re pursuing them for the right reasons. Every session with her I find something new to practice, and she helps me grow in my faith and resilience.

Dr. Boafu-Arthur is very attentive and listens to me before offering her perspective. She is not judgemental or harsh with her words. She makes good suggestions about reading resources to help me through my difficulties.

Dr. Boafo-Arthur took the time to deeply analyze the anxiety and oppression (I originally thought it was depression), and was able to help me get to the roots of the issue. She is patient, caring, wise and uses God's wisdom in all of her counseling. I'm grateful that the Lord lead me here.

Written by S.T. on May 18, 2018 after counseling with Susan for 1 month

Dr. Boafo-Arthur is amazing. Always there for me and very knowledgeable. She cares and that is what I needed, someone to care and listen.

Written by J.E. on May 07, 2018 after counseling with Susan for 3 weeks

Only 2 sessions in so far, but I've gotten more out of these two sessions than I have with face to face counselors.

You rocked! Sad I couldn't continue!

She is caring, compassionate, and sincere! Listens thoroughly and really cares for you.

Written by N.Y. on Mar 26, 2018 after counseling with Susan for 2 weeks

Although its awkward to open up to a stranger Dr. Boafo-Arthur definitely is understanding. I never felt judged! Whether you go to church or you don’t this is a safe space to open up about anything! It’s as easy as a text message with unlimited counseling, that was actually the most convenient part for me! I already have and will continue to recommend Faithful Counseling.
