Susan Hixson is a Christian counselor in the Marietta area. Her passion for counseling began through the Cobb Pregnancy Services organization where she mentored women struggling with a crisis pregnancy. She began to see the interweaving of many unresolved childhood issues that brought these women to this point in their journey. A compassion to help with their healing process catapulted her into training to do just that. In 2007 Susan became board-certified as a Christian Counselor through the Georgia Board of Examiners for Christian Counselors and Therapists. She received her master’s in Christian Counseling from Logos University in Jacksonville, Florida. She also received her certification as a temperament counselor through the Sarasota Academy of Christian Counseling. She did advanced studies in Abuse issues and Grief Support training through the Center for Loss and Life Transition. She has a Trauma Certification in Sexual Abuse from the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress. She uses her clinical skills as well as Biblical truths to address the specific issues creating crisis in the client's life. She has expanded her offering of counseling skills through a retreat ministry for women dealing with sexual abuse and/or domestic violence called The Rest of the Journey. Her goal is to identify and resolve personal, relational and spiritual issues through the power of Jesus Christ. Susan has 2 children and 5 active grandchildren. Her hobbies include reading, gardening, playing with grandchildren and bible studies.
