Hope Begins Here

When her 26-year-old daughter, Tiffany, was diagnosed with special needs at the age of two, Susan Baker turned to personal therapy for hope. “During this process, I discovered the importance of finding the right therapist,” says Susan. “I realized that there was a need for life-altering therapy, and I wanted to provide this to my community. That was when I decided to go back to school and become a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).”

Nearly five years ago, Susan opened Motivations Counseling. “For several years, I worked for another counseling agency. It was a great experience, but I wanted to offer something better. We’re different. We don’t just schedule clients an appointment with any therapist. It’s important that each individual be matched with the therapist that’s best for them and their situation.”
“Hope begins with that initial phone call,” continues Susan. “We want them to know that someone is here ready to help now. We believe it is critical that the client-therapist connection be made before the client ever sets foot in our office. Our ultimate goal is to start the therapeutic process with the client the same day they reach out to us for help.”

In the beginning, it was just Susan in Sugar Land providing therapy. Today, Motivations Counseling has grown to 11 therapists at two locations. The second location is in Katy/Cinco Ranch. “Each therapist is hand-selected by me, to fit our model,” explains Susan. “Our community is diverse. I want my staff to meet the needs of this community. We have therapists with a wide range of training and specializations. They speak different languages, including Spanish and Arabic. And we aren’t finished. We are still growing, and will continue to grow. I’m always looking for great therapists to add to our practice.”

Motivations Counseling treats adults, adolescents, couples, and families. Anxiety, depression, and relationship-issues are among the many mental health issues addressed. As COVID-19 changed the world, Motivations Counseling adjusted. “We now offer both in-person and telehealth appointments. All of our therapists can do telehealth if a client feels uncomfortable with in-person office visits. We are here to help in any way we can.”

Susan and her husband Rick have been married for more than 33 years. Their children, Tiffany and David, both attended FBISD schools from kindergarten through graduation. David is now in college, and Tiffany is in the day program at The Brookwood Community, an organization Motivations Counseling is proud to support. Susan has guest lectured several times at the University of Houston-Victoria, presenting to graduate students pursuing their LPC license. “I don’t have a ton of spare time,” says Susan. “But when I do, I enjoy traveling, exercising, and simply spending time with family and friends.”
