Several years ago I was going through a maelstrom of things hitting me at once. Someone I loved was dying, I had life-changing decisions to make for myself and I was feeling overwhelmed with grief and low self-confidence. I knew that I couldn’t do it by myself. I spent a lot of time researching therapists and found Suzanne. With each session I had with Suzanne, I felt better about what I could and couldn’t control in my life. The one I loved did die and because of Suzanne, I was able to face this awful grief without completely collapsing into a heap. Suzanne has such a gentle, non-judgmental manner that I didn’t feel embarrassed about what I said as I honestly laid out everything I was feeling. I’ll never be able to thank Suzanne enough for not only helping me deal with my grief and uncertainty but she set me up well to learn how to deal with these things should they come up again. If you need someone understanding, smart and compassionate, Suzanne is the therapist you need. — TJ, Bothell, WA
“I really believe that my first session with Suzanne Shadix was a pivotal time in my life. I was afraid to think I needed any kind of help, for years! I started to feel like I was slowly drowning with stress, lack of motivation, and self-deprivation. The thought of needing mental health help is just not really a topic people openly share in my life. Getting into her office was a huge, scary step for me, but every time I leave her office I wonder how I went so long without her. Her positive demeanor, genuine understanding, and sweet voice are calming and so reassuring. I feel like I’m enjoying life and living, something I think I had forgotten how to do. She’s given me and continues to give me the help and tool that are just right for me, a 43 y.o. wife and mother of three Her diagnosis has helped me mentally and physically to be a better me. I am so thankful to have met her. Taking this step to get mental health help was terrifying for me; she has taken away the stigma I had built up in my head by explaining things to me in a way that really made sense to my situation. I just can’t say enough good things about her she really did change my life in the most constructive, beautiful way.”

“I have been seeing Suzanne Shadix for about a year and a half since moving to Arizona. It was important to me to find someone that I was able to build a rapport with and she definitely made switching providers an easy and comfortable process. Moving to Arizona was already a difficult transition and I found Suzanne Shadix, someone I could easily talk to and confide in about personal matters, without feeling any judgment. She is very professional, compassionate, and genuinely concerned about you as a patient. She takes time to get to know you and listens to your concerns and you never feel rushed. She provides very positive feedback, advice, and solutions. I am very lucky to have found Suzanne Shadix and would highly recommend her!” — BV, Peoria, AZ
“When I initially went to ARNP Shadix, I was at the lowest point of my life. One of the things I most appreciate is that she actually listens, rather than staring at a computer screen and typing. Her thoughtful counseling and medication management were just what I needed. She is fantastic and I cannot recommend Suzanne Shadix highly enough.” — JC, Phoenix, AZ
