Kenneth Suslak, Ph.D.
Kenneth Suslak, Ph.D. is a licensed clinical psychologist with forty years of experience working with children, families, couples, and adults. He has directed mental health clinics, served private practice clients, and taught doctoral level students. He is a core professor at the Union Institute and University, a distance learning graduate program for midlife adults. He serves as an international consultant in countries where children have been impacted by war, political violence and social unrest helping to set up programs to meet the many needs of these traumatized children and their families. He loves supervising other therapists and imparting his knowledge, experience, and compassion to others.
Ken has extensive training and experience in “traditional” and “non-traditional” approaches and has been the co-director of the training program at the Gestalt Institute of Denver and the Rockies. He utilizes non-verbal expressive play therapy as well as family systems approaches to working with children. He specializes in the impact of separation, loss, abuse and other trauma on children and adults. He believes that we all have an innate capacity to grow and develop, that trauma and other life experiences interfere with that natural process, and views clients as being stuck rather than as sick. He lives in the foothills of Boulder with his wife and occasionally his grandson.
