She help us out tremendously. You can't find a better person if you have a high conflict divorce situation. She was warm and compassionate and clearly only concerned with the wellbeing of our children. I highly recommend her.

I was in a high conflict custody case and the other parent actually selected Susan Boyan believing that she would act as a "hired gun", after reading one of the posts above. In actuality, Susan Boyan quickly realized that this person who had hired her was abusing her own daughter and was a sociopath. Instead of aligning with the woman who had hired her, she did what was right for the child. This resulted in a loss of custody by the woman that had hired her. But it should be noted that two other independent mental health professionals came to the same conclusion as Susan Boyan, so it is clear she was doing the right thing for the child. She has immense integrity and the ability to see BS, distortions, and sociopathy. If you are in a situation where you or your child are being victimized by a sociopath, you need to run to Susan for help. She is not afraid to call a spade a spade when she sees it.

In the beginning I met with Susan and really thought she could help us. She has a great sales pitch. The truth is, she has no idea what she is doing. Somehow she has gotten the attorneys to start referring their clients to her. Ive heard they get a commission. In my opinion, she is now just part of the system, collecting as much money as she can before leaving you and your ex and your children much worse off than before. I tried to reason with her to find out why she actually encouraged my ex and I to bring in negativity to our sessions. If you question her she will turn against you. She profits the longer that you are in counseling so she will string it out as long as she can. In the end, she offers her services to testify if you want her to for $1500 a day. So she is a gun for hire. How can she be effective as a counselor if you can just pay her to be on your side? How can she be neutral and help? Take it from me, and I have met three other people so far who have had the same or worse experience than we did, Susan Boyan will not help you, but she will break you financially and she will make your relationship with your ex even worse. My ex and I are now back to before we saw Susan and everything is okay again. But she took $7000 and 8 months of our lives. Just look elsewhere. There are many family counselors that really care. Just not this one.

If you are a father and you are referred to see this parent coordinator, I suggest you turn tail and run the opposite direction. A direct quote from a lawyer in Gwinnett County, "We only use Susan Boyan if we represent the mother." It seems this person needs therapy instead of giving it.
