Sue Henderson Tepper, LCSW
I grew up in Somerset County with my parents and 4 sisters. My amazing parents taught us to be giving and caring, to help others when we can. Both of my parents and sisters were involved in service organizations.
I attended College in Pennsylvania earning a bachelors in Sociology and worked for years in the criminal justice system. It was there that I realized I wanted to do more to help others, so I went back to school and earned a master’s in social work at Rutgers University. I was trained and practiced family therapy in agency settings until I took some time off to focus on raising my two children.
In 2007 I formed Budd Therapy Group, LLC, opening a private practice so I could continue to help others while raising my children. After the last child went to college, I switched focus to agency work first at a Domestic Violence agency and then at Catholic Charities overseeing the clinical programs in Somerset County. Today I continue to focus on helping others through both agency and private practice.
My passion is to help others; I have been a licensed clinician for over 15 years, and I believe that everyone deserves to be happy and safe. My goal is to assist you with being your best; being comfortable with who you are and how you feel.

As a seasoned professional who navigated a successful career in business and
cherished the joys of raising a family, I discovered my true passion lay in fostering profound change and healing in individuals' lives. My journey began with a Bachelor's in Economics and an MBA in Finance, later earning my Master of Social Work (MSW) from Fordham University.
Understanding how we connect to others and how that was modeled in childhood has a profound impact on current relationships and is a foundational aspect of my practice.
I am trained in specialized modalities such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, parts work, mindfulness, and attachment.
I provide a safe, nurturing space where individuals can explore their inner landscapes, understand their attachment styles, find resilience, and uncover the tools necessary to navigate life's hurdles and create healthier, more fulfilling relationships.
Together, let's embark on a journey toward healing, growth, and reclaiming your inherent strength to lead a more fulfilling life, both within yourself and in your relationships.
There is nothing more powerful than the way clients talk to themselves about themselves.
My therapeutic approach is grounded in empowerment, emphasizing that we hold the keys to our healing journey.
