Dr. Susan Rako's latest book cover, That's How The Light Gets In

Dr. Rako’s specialty is in working with very intelligent (and sometimes very sensitive) individuals who are more interested in developing their own capacities than in complaining about the inadequacy of what they find outside themselves in the world and in other people.

Her areas of particular interest include (but are not limited to) the challenges of life for musicians and other artists, college students (not having substance abuse issues), couples who want to stay together but are having difficulties, and post-menopausal women. Author of the groundbreaking book, "The Hormone of Desire," Dr. Rako is uniquely expert in evaluating the mood effects of hormone deficiency as distinguished from depression due to other causes. Dr. Rako has had extraordinary success in treating bipolar individuals and with high-functioning psychotic individuals, but believes that person-to-person office visits may be most effective for this work.

Dr. Rako is available for a limited number of individual, one hour sessions via Skype each week.
