"She doesn't make me want me to be a better person. She makes me want to be a better me." --Kara Ann M.


"Real change and growth has occurred when I am with Susan, and for that reason I seek her out when there's something in myself or my work that needs to be free again." --Lucien R-B.

“Susan is a one-of-a-kind woman who has a magical way of connecting. I was lucky enough to have joined her Momma Circle once when I was nearing the end of my pregnancy. She was able to lead without being authoritarian, guide without taking away others’ voices, and be able to make every single one of us feel like we matter. She’s a wise one and I’d highly, highly recommend working with her in any way possible because you will walk away feeling fuller and more whole.” --Amy Progrebin Bremenstuhl


What my clients are saying...


"Susan has made the most of her gifts, primary of which is intelligence, courage in the face of ambiguity and a watchful humour. And grit. The woman has grit. She makes and keeps her commitments. She looks at challenges as solvable then proceeds to solve them. She has integrity and uses it. Susan is a good person to have on your side." --Rika Mead, Ricam Consulting Group, LLC


"From the first time I met Susan I was changed forever. I had to challenge myself and I was inspired - in ways that took me 3 years to understand. As a result, I am now living the most beautiful but blessed life ever and it is because I met her. I watched, questioned, and learned. Why? Because she is the best teacher. She does it by example, without judgement, and with total acceptance, support, and understanding. She makes me not want to be a better person. She makes me want to be a better me. I can only imagine how much of an impact she can make on your life is she is your coach.....the impact [for me] has been beyond words." --Kara Ann M.


"During our coaching sessions together, Susan guides me into the heart and belly space where I can find my own answers. Her sessions strike a balance between exploring intuition and practicality that I love. Susan has definitely helped me bring greater awareness and new possibilities into my life." - Lea Y.
