Transitions with Suzy Unger
Who is Suzy Unger?
- Suzy Unger, one of the pioneers of reality TV, has been a dealmaker in the biggest and most prestigious agency in the world. During her twenty-seven years in the television business, she has had the unfailing instinct to discover talent, create and package legendary reality television programming, and represent some of the biggest names in Hollywood.
Suzy lived a red-carpet life. What she didn’t know was that she was a deadly reality show waiting to happen. She had a not so big secret. She was dying from anorexia nervosa. After an almost deadly struggle, she checked herself into inpatient treatment where she lived with four other women old enough to be her daughters. It was then and there, after eight months, that she decided to TRANSITION her own life.
At the age of 50, after a very successful career, she decided to change other people’s lives in the same way she had changed her own. She went to grad school and became a psychotherapist. As a fierce ally to the LGBT community, she completed her clinical hours at the Los Angeles LGBT Center where she instituted the first eating disorder/body awareness therapy group. She then went on to lecture and speak on the subject and is passionate about new beginnings, new stories, and new pathways.
Please join her as she shares her stories with you and introduces you to new ideas and new ways of living your life.
Suzy is currently in private practice in Los Angeles, speaks regularly, and will begin her podcast marrying psychotherapy with life struggles and challenges related to changing old, tired stories into sparkly new narratives and life paths.
