ABOUT BLAKE

Blake Headshot.jpg

When I decided to return to college for my Master’s in Professional Counseling in 2010, after spending years running businesses, I didn't realize I signed up for heart surgery and a brain transplant. Even though it was not comfortable and I had to face parts of me I didn't know that I didn't know, the knowledge and wisdom gained have altered my life, all the lives around me, and it will continue to influence my family for many generations to come. The power of personal change! 

 

​I am now living in Wenatchee, Washington with my wife and five children while working to complete my Ph.D. in Mind-Body Medicine, which I plan to complete by the end of 2021. I recently published my first book: The Gift of Luck: The 10 Essential Stages of DEEP and LASTING Change (available at cost + shipping here)

I am a Washington State Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), Registered Hypnotherapist (RH), Child Mental Health Specialist (CMHS), Ohio State Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP). In Ohio, I worked as an intern and therapist at a behavioral healthcare and counseling center for adults for over a year. For the next two and a half years, I owned Integrative Mental Health Counseling, LLC, and acted as the sole practitioner serving primarily adults for trauma, anxiety, depression, and relationship counseling. After moving to Washington, my experience was rounded out by serving children and their families as a child and family therapist, in addition to supervising the WISe program, an intensive program for the at-risk youth and families. Further, I have had the opportunity to serve adults dealing with acute and chronic mental illness at a mental health inpatient facility. Blake Suzelis Holistic Counseling, LLC is a way to serve children and adults as part of a holistic, integrative, and preventative approach to chronic health issues.
