Susan Byrne MS, LPC, NCC - Cheyenne WY

Susan Byrne

Licensed Public Counselor – LPC

National Certified Counselor – NCC

Susan Byrne, a co-founder of Capitol Counseling, enjoys helping others overcome their challenges in life and learn from their experiences. In her fifteen years as an LPC, Susan has been motivated by a desire to help others reach their full potential. It’s her mission to improve the quality of life of individuals and families that come to see her by teaching them problem-solving skills, communication skills, self-control skills, how to overcome negative thinking, and more.

Susan received her MS in Counseling and Human Resources Development at the University of South Dakota. The time she spent at the University helped give her an understanding of human psychology and how to help people with both the mental and physical struggles of life. Susan learned, both in and outside of the classroom, how to help people cope, grieve, think correctly about the outside world, grow, learn, and overcome obstacles such as addiction. 

Since founding Capitol Counseling, Susan has helped provide comfort, solutions, and hope to individuals and families all across Cheyenne, Wyoming. Whether you’re a student attending LCCC and struggling to cope with depression, a couple struggling with relationship issues, or anything in between, Susan is ready to extend a helping hand and a listening ear.
