Light and Heart Therapy PLLC

Susanna Kaufman, MA, LPC-Associate, NCC

Supervised by Leslie Larson, LPC-S

Welcome. At Light and Heart Therapy, we gently shine a light on the hard things, bring our hearts on board, and bear witness to create a more meaningful empowered life. 

My Approach

Picture of therapist sitting cross legged in front of an arrangment of houseplants, therapy books, and crytals. The therapist appears calm, relaxed and meditative.

I provide counseling services to adults in Texas. My goal is to provide a safe space for people to work through struggles and connect to their own inner light and heart wisdom. My work is trauma-informed, and safety focused.


Previous life experiences create patterns that influence how we view our selves and others in the present. Sometimes these patterns help us. Other times these patterns are no longer helpful. It is important to honor how unhelpful patterns got started - shine a light - to create an understanding on how to move forward with a heart-centered and empowered update for those patterns.


I believe working toward social justice is important, and my aim is to create a supportive environment for aspects of your identity (such as race/ethnicity, culture, gender identity, sexual orientation, neurodivergence, ability, or weight) in an inclusive and contextual way. Your context matters.


Authenticity, trust, and compassion are the most important things to look for in the therapy relationship. I would love for you to leave therapy with a better connection to yourself and others.
