My name is Suzanne Snyder, I have a Master of Arts in Community Agency Counseling from Lenoir Rhyne University (1998). I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with the State of South Carolina. I have a private counseling practice for the past 17 years, focusing on depression, anxiety and life issues. I work mainly with adolescents and young adults. For the past 3 years, I have worked for the University of South Carolina School of Medicine at the Immunology Center/Ryan White Clinic (PH USC Medial Group) as a Mental Health Medical Case Manager. I currently work with the majority of our transgender patients ensuring adherence with medical care and medication, providing counseling and coordinating care with their needs including hormone replacement therapy and gender affirming care. I oversee a support group for our transgender patients called Transcenders, where we discuss issues such as hormone therapy, gender affirming surgeries, name change processes in the state and many related topics. I also serve as case manager for persons with HIV and mental health/substance abuse issues to ensure compliance with medical care and make sure they receive their mental health care. I also assess the mental health crisis’s and screen to determine the level of care our patients need (inpatient or outpatient) and work closely with the psychiatrists on staff to ensure continuity of care within our clinic.
I live in Columbia, I have been married for 20 years, and I have two children, a 15 year old son and an 11 year old daughter. In my free time (besides shuttling kids around), I like to play tennis, and love attending any Gamecock sporting event. My favorite place to visit is Kiawah Island, SC because I love the beach. I chose to be a therapist because I like helping people and love hearing their stories.
