Dr. Sukey Waller

  • Body Therapy and Counseling

Dr. Sukey (Susannah) Waller received her MA in Somatic Psychology from Antioch University, and her PhD in Psychology from Saybrook Institute, both in San Francisco, California. From 1986 to 1989, Dr. Waller developed a program for survivors of wartime torture and trauma for the Merced County Department of Mental Health. The program earned the California State Mental Health Prevention Award in 1988 for innovative project development. Dr. Waller directed support groups, therapy, and service coordination for Hmong hill tribespeople who had fought for the United States during the Vietnam War. All clients had lost a primary family member, had been POWs, or had witnessed directly the extreme violence of jungle warfare. The program provided specialized education for other social service, medical and school professionals working with trauma survivors, and chronic PTSD patients. Dr. Waller designed many publications for these providers, and became moderately fluent in the Hmong language.

Subsequently, Dr. Waller directed the Deschutes Children’s Foundation in Bend, Oregon, initiated the Rosie Bareis Center for Children, designed programs for J Bar J Youth Services, and conducted capital campaigns for early childhood programs, and homeless shelters. She has extensive non-profit consultancy experience throughout Oregon.

For 22 years Dr. Waller has maintained a private clinical practice focusing on body therapy and counseling. In 2006 she began working with the youth and families coordinator of the National Guard to offer more services to military families in Central Oregon. She is a Military One Source Provider for Ceridian Lifeworks, and is a member of their Post Deployment Health Reassessment Team.

She is a critical incident responder for insurance companies and Ceridian Military Go Team Leader, for critical incident response worldwide.

Dr. Waller is one of 200,000 U.S. professionals selected for the Cambridge Who’s Who 2007-2008, for professional and community service contributions.
