Suzanne Papini, AMFT

Associate Marriage and Family Therapist
(CA Lic#: AMFT88371, under the supervision of Dr. Diggs)

Suzanne Papini is a Marriage and Family Therapist Associate who comes to us after four years under the supervision of Kate Harrington at their private practice. She was able to connect with children, adults, and couples over issues of stress, anxiety, trauma, communication, and life skills. Prior experience began at Stonewall Alliance Center where she was able to engage with our local LGBTQ+ community. The experience she got at Stonewall certainly carried on in her private practice, as many patients came in with experiences of sexual trauma, sexual and gender curiosity, polyamory, body image, and exploration of self and relationships.

Suzanne started out wanting to focus on sex therapy, but found that the umbrella of sex/gender issues goes hand in hand with all styles of therapy and so it was time to open up to a new direction in therapy style and join the Nysa Team!

Suzanne graduated with her Master’s Degree in 2015 from Chico State and predicts being fully certified by 2020. When she takes off her therapist hat she is involved in theatre, and all things out doors, because when things get tough she can “take a hike!”
