Dr. Plunket is incredible. My fiance and I both have been in and out of therapy over the years (individually) andare very impressed with our first couples session. We had gone through something very traumatic and we were very angry with each other. Dr. Plunket was able to digest our rather complicated situation quickly and deliver concise feedback in the same session. She has an incredible way of listening and showing compassion while also delivering a point of view. We both left the session feeling grateful and surprised at how much we had both learned in just one session. Thank you Dr. Plunket we will be back.

When I read Susans book during a crisis of my moms diagnosis of dementia and hospice i quickly made my first appointment.

She is incredibly thorough and thoughtful in her meetings - every time I meet with her I leave feeling refreshed and challenged to think about things in different ways. I have never left a single meeting with her without feeling likeI have a better handle on something that I have been questioning over the past weeks. I'm very thankful to have found her through ZocDoc - she's an absolute gem!

I really enjoyed my visit with Susan. She was on time (if not early), kind and professional (yet not stuffy). I really felt like she was in my corner and rooting for me, which is so important with a therapist. I will definitely see Susan again.

OMG! Susan Plunket was an amazing support and help! I can hardly find the words to describe her professionalism, delicacy, and ability to create a comfortable friendly atmosphere! She doesn't play with your problem to get as many appointmentsout of your treatment as possible (like some other phycologists), but she simply helps! Even one talk to her is a huge relief! Highly recommended!
