About Suzanna

My Journey

I’m Suzanna Adelizi, a licensed marriage and family therapist. Here at Cobblestone, our paths converge. I’m looking forward to learning about what has brought you to this point in your path. But you may be interested to know how I got here.

How did I get here? Well, the road to becoming a counselor was a long one. Like some of you, I experienced some significant losses very early in life that took me a while to process and overcome. But the painful life experiences that have come my way have made me the person who I am today and have developed my resilience, compassion for others, and the certainty that our lives can change for the better.

In mid-life I graduated from college, pursued a law degree, and enjoyed practicing for several years as an attorney in California. While I was in practice, I was offered a special opportunity to head up a law school career services department, which was a transformative experience for me and where I found my true calling in counseling.

For me, there is no greater privilege or reward than for me to connect with you, learn about you, your hopes and goals, and work together to create more of the kind of life you want to experience.
