Meet Suzanne Higbie-Long, MA

Hello! My name is Suzanne Higbie-Long and as a counselor with

Peace Within: Counseling for Women I am excited to serve women

in their journey to navigate their busy lives.


I focus on helping women amplify self-empowerment and self-love. My wide range of life and professional experiences provide a warm and compassionate foundation--allowing space for my clients to heal, grow, and achieve their full potential.


Teaching and serving adolescents and adults for two decades before earning my Masters degree as a Clinical Mental Health Counselor informs my approach to counseling. My counseling sessions center on the unique ways each of us learns and heals while sifting through past experiences which may be holding us back. Social justice and human rights are primary focuses as well.
