Susan Rothermel-Dulany, LCPC, LGPAT

Intensive Outpatient Therapist

Susan Rothermel-Dulany is an Intensive Outpatient Therapist at Sandstone Care in Towson, Maryland, where she brings a unique blend of artistic and therapeutic skills to her practice. Susan’s educational journey in mental health began at The George Washington University in Washington, D.C., where she pursued a graduate program in art therapy. During her studies, she interned at the Georgetown University Hospital Partial Hospitalization Program, focusing on young adults transitioning from acute mental health care.

Susan furthered her education at Notre Dame du Namur University in California, earning a master’s degree in art therapy and marriage and family therapy. Her internship at the Berkeley Creative Wellness Center allowed her to work with adult populations facing moderate to severe mental health conditions. In 2017, Susan relocated to Maryland, where she achieved her licensure as a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) and a Licensed Graduate Professional Art Therapist (LGPAT).

As a transpersonal therapist, Susan is committed to integrating various therapeutic modalities including art therapy, psychodynamic therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI). Her approach is deeply holistic, with a focus on helping clients explore the existential aspects of their lives, understanding the mind/body/spirit connection to better navigate life stages and identity discernment.

Susan has worked with a diverse range of clients, from children and adolescents to the elderly, tailoring her methods to meet the unique needs of each age group and demographic. She believes strongly that each individual is born with inherent wisdom and seeks to help her clients reconnect with this innate knowledge.

One of Susan’s greatest joys as a mental health provider is witnessing her clients reclaim their personal power and identity, a process she describes as a powerful homecoming. Outside of her professional life, Susan enjoys meditation, traveling, hiking, and exploring the world around her. She finds these activities not only enrich her personal life but also enhance her therapeutic practice.

Susan cherishes the time she spends with her family—her husband, two boys, and their two cats. Her role as a mother and partner is deeply intertwined with her professional identity, as both spheres of her life inspire and inform her commitment to fostering wellness and understanding in others.
