Maybe life isn’t turning out as you had expected. You’ve had your share of successes and disappointments. Beyond that, you sense that something is missing or that life simply isn’t working for you. Even with your best efforts, you can’t quite get on-top-of self-limiting traits and behaviors. Loneliness may be a close companion or perhaps busyness fills your days leaving you scattered and longing for something else. How did things end up this way? In spite of your obstacles and limitations, could it be that you are being called to live a deeper, richer, more authentic life?

As we start our work together, I listen deeply and reflect back what I hear so that you end up being inspired by yourself, able to hear and take-in not your laundry list of shortcomings but instead what you have accomplished, survived, created. Owning your strengths and abilities, confidence and self-acceptance emerge. At each session’s end, you’ll leave with something to ponder and a broader view of your life’s possibilities.

I have devoted my professional life to learning, then teaching, tools that provide life satisfaction and balance and help others deal with what life dishes out. These are tools that once learned, can be applied both in the present and later used to weather storms that arise in the future.

I look forward to meeting you. Suzanna

 “There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost. The world will not have it."

-Martha Graham
